Winnebago, one of the leading manufacturers of recreational vehicles, manufactures handicapped-accessible RVs in its Ability Equipped line. Other manufacturers with handicapped-accessible RVs include Ride Away, Newmar and North Trail RV.
Since most recreational vehicles offer custom-design options, a customer can request a floor plan designed specifically to meet his unique needs. Some common accessibility features are wheelchair lifts, roll-in showers, conveniently located controls, grab bars in the bathroom, tables and counters appropriately sized to accommodate a wheelchair, and widened walk spaces within the vehicle.
Recreational vehicle manufacturers recommend finding a local vendor to get an RV that meets the user's accessibility needs. A vendor may also be able to provide more details about other ways to customize the RV and can provide continuing service on the new vehicle following its design and purchase. To find a local vendor, an individual can visit any manufacturer's website and click the Locations or Dealer locator tabs to begin the search.
For those interested in purchasing a used RV, a recreational vehicle classifieds website may be a good place to look. Some classified sites, such as RVproperty.com, have pages dedicated to accessible vehicles for sale. Searching for a used vehicle may provide the user with a less expensive RV that can still meet his accessibility needs.
