Are you a new or used travel trailer owner with special needs who is eager to get started living a life on the road or taking that ideal travel trailer vacation? If so, should make sure your travel trailer is prepared to make your trip safe and enjoyable. The following tips can help you prepare your travel trailer for your recreational vehicle trip.
You can get your travel trailer adapted for your specific need and/or requirements. In fact, many types of RVs can be custom ordered brand new with ADA approved amenities and modifications. If you have a used travel trailer, then you can adapt the RV unit easily.
Types of special needs adaptations for your travel trailer or recreational vehicle:
1. Either order or install a ramp or elevator/lift for wheelchair accessibility. Prices will vary for different needs and requirements, so it is important that you know what you wish for in your RVing travels, as well as what will be safe.
2. Adapt the light switches, kitchen faucets, bathroom faucets, and other appliances so that they are easily reachable for those in a wheelchair. If you do not order the motor home new with these adaptations already installed, then you can take it to an RV dealer or wholesaler for tips and recommendations on where to get the work done for a budget-friendly price.
3. You can custom design the towable unit or motor home so that the doorways and shower spaces are wider. If you have a used recreational vehicle and need to modify its spaces, then take it to a professional for a design plan. You could do more damage than benefit, if you try to widen frames on your own and you do not know what you are doing. You do not want to negatively affect the framing of the unit, making it unsafe to drive.
4. Another tip in preparing your recreational vehicle for traveling with special needs is to make sure you have the proper safety equipment, such as seat belts, wheel chair ties, etc. All passengers should be buckled in securely when the RV is in motion. Look online for unique contraptions that may interest and suit you and your needs.
5. Keep a list of emergency contacts and prescription medications in the dashboard and/or on board the RV towable unit.
It is time for you to get on the road in your new or used ADA adapted motor home unit or fifth wheel trailer or other towable. There is no reason for you to feel as though you are left behind due to a handicap or special need. Talk online to others who may be traveling with disabilities for advice on camp grounds, stops and activities.
