Disability lift installer in Connecticut?

Last October I purchased a Thor ACE 29.2 from a motorhome dealer in Connecticut. My wife and I are “Snowbirds” as we have a home in Higganum, CT and a place in an RV Resort in Titusville, Florida. After purchasing the motorhome, I put it in a storage facility in Higganum, CT as I plan to have a remote-conrolled Burr Handy Lift that I also purchased, installed on the motorhome in the Spring. In asking the motorhome dealer about installing the lift they say they do not. The Burr Handy Lift is simply a very long trailer jack mounted to the left of the RV door and has a platform that raises a standing person up so that the person does not have to climb the RV stairs (another platform is built over the stairs). The Handy Lift platform swings out ot the way and attaches to the side of the RV while traveling. My wife has difficulty climbing stairs and installing this Burr Handy Lift will let her continue to be an RV’er. We didn’t travel to Florida this year because of this. I want to have her first experience traveling to be easy, and have the lift installed before leaving for Florida.
I thought of maybe a Connecticut company that modified vans for disabilities or an actual RVdisablility modification company would install my Burr Handy Lift.......but would my already having the lift cause them to say no? I'm hoping that someone in this forum would know the name and address of one or more Connecticut companies that would install my Burr Handy Lift on my ACE motorhome for me in the Spring. Thanks!

I'd start with places that sell the lift you've purchased. See if they have installers or can recommend one.

We have always had good luck providing equipment to an installer. We just ask and have never been turned down.
