On view- Motorhome for the Disabled

RDH Motorhomes of Beeston Nottingham, in conjunction with Benimar, have produced a prototype motorhome suitable for the disabled. It is hoped the "Eurable" will become a standard production model and will be incorporated into their hire fleet.

You can see more information about this at www.whellgotraveling.info on the "Spotted" pages and at http://www.andyzadora.com/page_18_rdh_motorhomes.htm

If you want a wider door or a wheelchair lift on a motorhome have a look at the above and contact RDH.

There has been a bit of thought put into that.

Its not just a widened door and ramp job, however they need to market it otherwise potential buyers will not be aware, then it wont sell, so it will be dropped as no call

My concern too Dodger and one of the reasons I brought it to the attention of this site. They did get quite a spread in the MotorCaravanners Club mag and no doubt more articles will follow in other mags. It is a protoype though and maybe it is a little early to go overboard with promotional activities just yet?

Marquis used to do one too but not heard much about that since its initial launch about 5 years ago!

What I would like to see is a few manufactures having at least one model in their range built in such a way that that there were options for the disabled. I am sure it just requires a little thought to achieve what I would call a dual role model. This way, if the market was small at least something would be more widely available for the disabled at a reasonable price. The Americans seem to manage this but of course with much larger vehicles. Swift offers the option of a wider door on one of its models, cannot remember which one but that is not much use to a wheelchair user if the chair cannot be moved around inside? It therefore had limited appeal.
