Help with access problem any class motorhome

Didn't see a place on the motorhome forum to post a question across class a, b, c, etc., for the same question without having to post the question on each forum, a, b, c.

My DW has a bad medical problem that requires her to use the bathroom about every 20-30 minutes.

We are looking for a motorhome that she can get up out of the passengers chair and make it to the BR. The problem we have found with class c and b or b+s is the driver and passenger areas are like an airplane cockpit. Once you get in it is very hard to get out, enter the coach, unless you open the door and exit then reenter the coach. This would not work as we would have to constantly stop.

She could ride in the coach all the time but she wants to see the country as well.

We are looking for a motorhome for seasonal travel, not over 3000 miles or more than 30 days at a time. Will be hauling grandkids as well so need sitting space. We do not need much sleeping room as we will probably stay at motel/hotels most of the time.

So looking at something along the lines of a Thor Serrano, Winnebago Via, but it must have a diesel engine and no large overhang over the drivers cab.

Does anyone have or know of a model that is not over 30-34' that would work for us?

Thanks for any help. We have looked at a lot of class c, b, and some A's (not 40'DP) and none have fit the bill so far.

Our coach works well for us. DW is scheduled for a hip replacement but we are travelling. There is room for her to move to the washroom and the air ride makes the coach so smooth she has no issues.

Since you don't need beds, you might look at a diesel Sprinter van with an enclosed bathroom. It would have better seats than an RV and lots of space for storage.
