    I am trying to help a best friend find a handicapped accessible/useable RV that he and his wife can use. He broke his back a few years ago and is paralyzed from the navel down; I think he probably weighs around 275 pounds. He would want to do most, if not...  more

      Jenskifer how cool! i love seeing fellow disabled folks on the road. i don't need hand controls right now, but i've done some research over the years. motorhomes can definitely have hand controls added-- from what I understand, it's no different than adding hand co...  more

      Berry&Deborah Mark, Thanks so much. We will followup on the ideas you gave us. Yes, it is puzzling and sad to me that there are many businesses that would create "negative experiences". It seems even more ruthless when it is someone with enough problems already, such a...  more

      The Dee That's really too bad and rotten.  I have met John in the past at Disability shows.  Sportsmobile can do any kind of conversion but it's all within a Class B framework so it may be too small.  Winnebago makes a purpose built Class A wheelch...  more Hide 1 Reply
