a Solution for Handicapped RV Access

I installed a Travel Lift Chair and could not be happier. My daughter has Cerebral Palsy and we almost passed on getting a MH because we were not sure we could get her in it. We found a used Travel Lift Chair and took a chance. We purchased a 2003 Winnebago Brave 34D and the unit bolted in perfectly. The directions and pictures mean it is a do it yourself job. Took about an hour of my time using a drill and screwdriver. Unit runs on 110VAC which has not been a problem. It does make a slight rattle on the road, but is not that noticeable. The best part is the Customer Service. The company is owned by Garlin Cheatham, and I am here to tell you he is the nicest guy I have ever done business with. Even though we purchased a used lift, his customer support has been way above and beyond anything I could have expected.. It is a safe buy and a great machine. The web site is not as fancy as other companies, but believe me the product works. It has freed our family to do some traveling and sightseeing. No more looking for handicapped rooms.

Another solution that works extremely well. If you have someone that needs a wheelchair and the size of the wheel chair limits your ability to access parts of your motorhome, consider getting one of these.
The Invacare Lightweight Folding Transport Wheelchair can cost up to $200 and this Ebay site has a bunch of these for $90.
It is 21" wide at the widest point (front wheels) which means it will fit down most RV hallways with room to miss floor level detectors and door jams. It is lightweight and will fit into most toilet areas. It folds into a compact package and can be easily stowed for travel. I got one for my daughter and it works great!
