    Hi to all you happy campers... I'm new to this and I haven't got my camper yet... I'm on pip and receive higher rate mobility... I am not a wheelchair user and the only adaption I'd need to make would be to put a thingy on the steering wheel to turn it easier...I've wanted a green vw camper my whole adult life... and now I find myself with disabilities and need to get away from the rat race and be at peace with nature... can anyone advise me on how to go about getting a vw camper on motorbility and if I even can... Many thanks for your time.... Love and light...... Raven x

    I don't think you can. Motorbility have a set list of vehicles to choose from. Go on line and have a look.

    welcome to the fun, I am sure the disabled members will come up with the definitive answer for you very soon but why not set your sights on something a little larger so you can actually spend some time in it rather than just have a day van.

    A number of members have/had a campervan/motorhome on mobility so not entirely true.

    Have just been on the Motability website and there are no camper vans to lease whatsoever!

    So you would have to use your allowance privately.

    Think you would be best to use your mobility allowance to off set a loan and have a look privately. Good luck.

    That's a bummer! Horrible condition you suffer from. Have you someone who could help you to look and guide you through the process?

    ah my misunderstanding of what motorability is nowerdays I know people bought new and saved the VAT or purchase tax as was applicable at the time, Someone who knows the full current story will no doubt help.

    A disabled person can still get VAT relief on qualifying purchases.
