Handicapped lift ideas?

My mom is selling her house and considering the purchase of an Excel fifth wheel. Her knees aren't the best and she has some stability issues. What would be the best for her? A seat lift, or maybe a standing lift?

I'm still in the research process, right now.. Any recommendations are greatly appreciated!

My mother used a chair lift for years. They are slow and safer than a standing lift. Wider the entry door the better for manuvering.

I would also consider a Toy Hauler like the Cyclone. The ramp can be useful in loading and offer an outdoor patio without leaving the 5th wheel.

Hi EMD_Driver,
Thinking a bit outside the box, consider Newmar Canyon Star 3911. Go to
Floor Plan Options - Newmar and take a look.
