Handicap RV information page????

Was trying to find a hanicaped RV forum page, Did this with my late wife for over ten years, and would love to pass along information not only for the aflicted person, but for the caregiver too.

Just a thought

We have a 30 year old disabled son that makes travel interesting. Don't get me wrong we enjoy travel with him. He was born with Hydrocephalus or water on the brain. We have diapered and tube fed him for 30 years. This lifestyle does make you appreciate the simple pleasures of life.

jwar has an excellent idea in the making. OK moderators what do you think about creating a sticky or new board for handicapped people and their caregivers? I know of no other RVing forum addressing this subject. I vote YES!

Sounds like a good idea, might help people decide weather to RV or not.

In all honesty an RV is probably the only way we can travel with any comfort at all

Pulled into a roadside rest stop they just rebuilt in Central California on 99 and they had long pull through spots in the RV section painted and marked for Handicapped only.

First I've seen pull throughs for RV's.

Pretty neat.

We create new forums when we see sufficient posts to sustain a new forum.

Unfortunately, there have not been enough posts on this topic to warrant a new forum at this time.

I am on oxygen full time. We are planning to go full time this year. There are so many forms of disability, and from what I've been able to gather from reading all these forums, many people just make do, and work around them. I don't know if we could actually have a forum like that with so many different maladies. Usually, if you really have a debilitating thing going on there are support groups for that just related to that form of disability. That is the best way to find out how other people cope with their particular brand of disability.

While we are both blessed with good health there are alot of folks that are not as fortunate. The blog I linked really let me see thru her eyes what her day is like for someone with a disabilty who camps. It gave me a better perspective of what some members in my club go thru.

I, for one, travel with a wife who is handicapped and wheel chair bound. Trying to find vendors who specialise in supporting those with disabilities is I think a very worthwhile project irregardless of what our moderator has to say.

I must say that in the past when I have asked, I usualy got good response, but it would be nice to go to a forum with ready made answers.

I am interested in the topic also. I do recall a memeber who gave me a bit of help with stair redesign plans and pictures of his project for his wife. While I haven't done it yet, I am thinking on it. I am a CPTA ( Phys. therapy) in a former life, so handicap accesability is an interesting topic to me.
