After several months of study, I decided to go with my friends from Scootaround. While they are not actually the manufacturer, they handle the one I purchased. Drive Medical ZooMe Auto-Flex, covered all of my needs in that it is a mobile, fold up electric scooter, weighing 50lbs, and approved by all airlines. I will be able to fold it up, put it in my truck and take off on new adventures.

My guys were even able to access my rental account, of which I had scooters rented for two future cruises, and transferred the balance to my sales account which was almost like a discount. Ordering, shipping and delivery all went smoothly.
Some minor assembly was required, thankfully handled by my brother-in-law, and a full 24 hours used to fully charge the battery and a supplemental battery that I bought.
The Drive ZooMe Auto-Flex Scooter’s ultra-lightweight design makes it an excellent option for people with on-the-go lifestyles. The scooter’s “Flex” feature allows it to fold in a single motion, meaning it does not need to fully disassemble for storage or transportation. Unlike other Drive scooters which need to be folded manually, the Auto-Flex provides electronic folding and unfolding in 15 seconds or less with a wireless key fob.
Thanks to its four-wheel design, the Drive ZooMe AutoFlex is exceptionally stable on a variety of surfaces. The scooter also comes with an angle-adjustable delta tiller for superior comfort, ensuring easy throttle control for all users.

Ironically, in the interim period from making my decision on the scooter, and receiving shipment, I was rushed to hospital with respiratory failure, spent eight days there, and now finally home but on constant oxygen. So, as of this date, I have not used the scooter, but it sure is here and ready for my first venture out.
