Portable step lift
 
We are looking for easy access for my wife to get into a MH we are about to buy - no decision made yet as to which one, but need to get her from ground level into the unit - have seen the portable step lift which looks like it will do the job, does anyone know where I can get one or does someone have one for sale?

thanks in advance

Dave

I have 3 steps made especially for disabled, now not used. Less heavy than a portable lift.

thanks - can you let me have the details, as she is very limited in getting up steps as she is very weak on the left side, thats why the lift would be advantageous.

Hi Dave, We bought a bath hoist in an auction and I have adapted it for my wife who has MS. So far it has cost me under £20. Try local car boot sales or auctions or ebay. Martyn MBE

Thanks - we had a local "Care and Repair" builder come and form a ramp up to the front door and asked him to do some ambulant disabled steps into the garden - he did, nad she manges them OK, he built some timber steps so we could try them with a motorhome nad she was able to use them with very little problem.

We are now the proud owners of an Ace Roma which has a large "garage" wher we can store all manner of things including the steps which are quyite light - only got charged for the timber.

Looking forward to picking it up week after next and getting away in it.

many thanks for all the replies.

Good luck

That's the one, had a chat with Dolphin rep who gave a price of just under £1700 (no vat for obvious reasons) for 350mm platform and a 3 week minium delivery.

Did not wish to spend that sort of money at this time as second hand I have seen them for £350 ish but they are always sold by the time I get to find them.
