Kev. Just get a Blue badge. It wont make any difference as it would be totally discriminatory. Just because you have a Blue Badge does not mean you are in anyway less capable of driving a 4000kg motorhome, a Ferrari or a tank.

Just remember to not under sell your application.

Sorry Kev, I was trying to throw some light on that point, if not exactly answer it, by saying it is all about ability to walk. In other words I can't see how it would affect someone's perceived ability to drive. If you can have a blue badge to use when driving your car I dont see why you can't drive a larger vehicule. Unless of course you base your application on having seizures, or something like that, which would mean you weren't supposed to be driving at all anyway.

I appreciate that Chris, and thanks, there is virtually tons of information on blue badges, on here and Google, but about zilch on the C1, which was the question in the OP, IE if I had a blue badge already, would it affect me keeping my C1 entitlement, but I seem to have confused everyone somehow that I was after blue badge info which I wasn't, not yet anyway, but watch this space as I seem to get worse each day

It seems it wouldn't so question answered now hopefully.

I would say it should/will have no effect.

Our friends current MH was a ex-motability vehicle i.e the previous owner, partner or dependant child was in receipt of DLA, PIP or AA. It is plated at 3.8T.

That said it does beg the question why the scheme would allow a MH to be a motability vehicle.......helping with everyday mobility issues ?

You can/could have any vehicle at one point, but they clamped down on it when people were found to be buying top line vehicles then selling them on, it was a VAT scam I recall.

Yep, friend in Surrey did it several times with RVs but his son really was disabled and wheelchair bound. It seemed as long as the wheelchair could be accommodated securely within the living area that was all that was needed.
