Wheelchair Access Motorhome For Hire
One of the most romantic holiday adventures, is the idea of climbing into a wheelchair accesssible motorhome, kitted out with a fold out bed, a wind up roof, a sink, cooker, and pull out awning, and heading off to find some freedom. istorically motorhomes have not been very easy to access for people with mobility issues, particularly those who need to access the vehicle in their wheelchair However that fact is no longer the case, as the UK now has available wheelchair disabled accessible motorhome hire and rent, also known as recreational vehicles, RVs or campervans.
So what is a wheelchair accessible motor home? Essentially it is a mobile home, built into a larger van, which can be driven around where-ever you would like to visit, and parked up for short stops through to overnight stays, depending on local regulations. The difference the wheelchair accessible campervans bring is that they have been specifically designed to accommodate travellers who need to at the very least get in and out of the vehicle in their wheelchairs, and then move around inside the van within their chairs.
A fully accessible motorhome which you can easily access from a side entry wheelchair lift and sit as a passenger up front remaining in your wheelchair.
The design elements include a living area where the sink and hob fold down easily ready to be used, the dining table slots into place and there is a built in fridge so drinks are always chilled and ready. Getting the bed ready consists of folding the double bench seat flat, shutting the blinds and pulling out the duvet from the built in cupboards – there is also the option of a second bed in the roof compartment. To extend the living space you can remove the front seats with ease.
