My wife is disabled, when we visited the Dusseldorf motorhome show about five years ago we saw an excellent conversion of a Hymer motorhome by this company. We didn't ask the price as we knew in our heart of hearts that we couldn't afford it. Looking at their website they don't seem to do such a vehicle these days. For those who can afford the best it may be worth contacting them.

The Hymer featured a wheelchair lift and numerous modifications for the benefit of disabled users.

WARNING.!!... The above post may contain an opinion

Academia and government artificially select for particular traits, among which is a lack of life experience. This is why it's possible for a person to be exceptionally bright while failing to grasp something as rudimentary as supply and demand.

thanks have added to bookmarks with other disabled sites. However after looking at some sites I did wonder if I might be better off having a panel van LWB with a tailgate and having a ramp at the back for access.Still on the drawing board with overlapping ideas.Little bits of cardboard on graph paper. Who still do a tailgate on a panel van.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Not looked it up but I see them every day or so, ambulances also have a half ramp tailgate arrangement, so they are out there, I'll look later when I get home, remember though if you park in a town and use the ramp to get the lass out, you may be stuck on your return if someone parks too close, so you'd need to think ahead when parking so this is less likely, like last in a line of cars where you have yellow lines behind you stopping anyone parking right up your chuff.

Looking at one of these, maybe fit it to the front passenger seat of the motorhome.transfer from wheel chair.
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bruno-Turny-...QAAOSw9GhYfXN8

For journey's around the town and within 20 miles, we use a London black Cab that loads wheelchairs in from the nearside, rather than through the back. We find that other drivers are more courteous to us as the sight of a Taxi means only a slight delay.Plus of course the preferential treatment from other London Taxis.

Don't be silly all the time ask your question.

Thank you for that, however it does not allow for wheelchairs, only walking wounded.
