Most types of RVs on the market, including the bumper pull travel trailer type of RV, can be either custom made or custom adapted for those RVers who are physically challenged. Just because a person is limited with his/her mobility does not mean he/she cannot enjoy a life on the road in a motor home or with a bumper pull travel trailer. By doing research RVer will be able to find accessible recreational vehicles or towables that complement their physical capabilities.
A bumper pull travel trailer is a type of towable motor home unit. It is hitched to a bumper that is located at the rear of a larger vehicle. This larger vehicle is often a pick up truck or SUV that can pull a large load. You can find a bumper pull travel trailer in many sizes with a variety of layouts. You will have to make an educated decision as to which type of bumper pull travel trailer or larger RV, such as a Class A motor home, you would like.
Wheelchair capabilities and RVs
If you use a wheelchair and would like to own a motor home or towable unit, then one tool that may be beneficial to you is a wheelchair restraint system. This allows your chair to be stabilized when the RV or bumper pull travel trailer is in motion.
RVs are also wheelchair accessible when the towable or motor coach has a lift. The lift resembles that of an elevator and raises the chair from the ground level to the level of the recreational vehicle. If you buy used, double check to make sure the lift is in safe operations before purchasing or using.
Technology to assist when driving
Not everyone who has a physical disability is restricted to a wheelchair. In such cases, there could be technological advances available for the towable or RV. Some examples of these advances are a left foot accelerator, touch pads, brake assistance, or steering assistance. These are all beneficial towards making your dream of living life on the road a dream come true.
Other ways of help
In addition to the few items listed above, motor homes and travel trailers can have larger and wider doors installed, which includes the shower area. Faucets, light switches, and other fixtures can be lowered to the appropriate height. There are also panic alarms that can be installed.
If you are in the market for a new or used recreational vehicle or towable RV unit, but are physically challenged, there is an option for you. There are safe and affordable ways for you to enjoy your life on the road just as any other person. Begin your research today.
