I can't get in

Hi we have a class c but I can't climb the step to get to the back when we stop I must go around to the side door up the steps & in. Problem is I have MS so if it is a bad day I can't do the steps. My husband picked me up time & time again finally we had to call 911.
When we got home I researched lifts & found two but they are in the thousands anyone with any ideas I would be most greatful.
Thank you,
SusanK88

I use a Burr's lift for my wife. She also has MS and can not walk at all. Had it installed on the outside of RV and it works great for her. Also installed hand controls for her to drive RV if she wants to.

Hope this helps!

When I was driving transit, most of the fleet had hydraulic lifts operating in the forward doorway. They were cumbersome and slow, but just about all coach manufacturers used them. We got three new coaches while I was working there that had a simple ramp that formed part of the floor inside the entry when it was retracted and it rotated up and over to slope down to the sidewalk for disabled passengers to use.

Unfortunately, the coaches had serious reliability issues and were sold off quite quickly.

We camped next to a camper once that the owner had built a small ramp up to his door. Looked interesting, not for sure how it was attached.

I wonder if you could use a longish ramp off the top step of the MH down to the ground. Probably want a railing on one side and husband on the other to help. Store it vertically in the doorway when traveling. Maybe something like screen door hooks to keep it in place vertically.
