Anybody pick up leaflets on disabled motorhomes at N.E.C

HI ALL
I have a fiat c.p.t accessible motor home for the disabled as my daughter is in a wheel chair , we love the freedom of being able to go anywere at any time. we've had ours just short of 2 years now and spent 180 nights away including 1 week at disney paris. And a full week last feb on leeds general infirmary car park when my daughter was having an operation. Just wondered did anybody see any new models of adapted motorhomes or picked up any leaflets?.

keep on motorhoming life is too short!!!!!

I saw some wheelchair accessible motorcaravans at the 'Beyond Limits' show at Maidstone a few months ago. There is a web site:

www.nirvanarv.com

Hope this is of help!

Roy Wood Transits do custom and off-the-shelf disabled campervans (innovation range) - depends if you want a smallish campervan or a bit motorhome.

I went to the NEC and I thought this years vans did not really lend themselves to modification for wheelchair users! There also seems to be less willingness to help as well. I did not see any modified vans there at all.
I was very disappointed and have resigned myself to the fact that unless I am prepared to pay for a custom build I have to keep what I have got.

hi there
iam pretty impressed with oasis apart from a few problems that we encounted since purchase from Mark at nivarna who have been very help full, i especially like the lift that folds away under the motorhome.
We travelled to Scotland first for 6 days for a trial run then it was bite the bullet and down to Spain/France, life is so much easer now as we had a caravan before and i spent most of my time on my backside transferring into the caravan.
Always on the look out for good sites with access, we liked France very much but would consider other places depending on the funds situation as money pretty tight, when i purchased the motorvan payment was euro it was 3000 more than when first ordered
happy touring
Edd

Edd,
I have lost count of the number of times we have been on the continent and there are not many corners in the UK we have not been too. If you need any info PM me, I may be able to help. Have a look at my web site if you haven't already. Hope all continues to go well for you and enjoy your travels.

New disabled vehicles

Hi,
I am a new member.
Just read your e.mail.
I represent a company in Northern Ireland that build bespoke disabled vehicles. Either van conversions or a chassis to your own personnal preference.
We build them from scratch, so there is greater scope for putting your own personnal touch to them.

We build to suit your needs.

If you feel that this is something that would be of interest to you, please contact me, we would love the opportunity to speak with you.

Safe travels and blue skies.

Kind Regards
Linda
