    That does look nice. A lot of thought gone into converting it. If any criticism I think there is too much grey paint on the outside. That's all.

    plus the windows are too big . think that is badly thought out . could have been blanked off for the build . also not much storage again badly designed .

    Marvellous! The OP is from Wrexham, and in one of the adverts, the seller of the conversion is from......Wrexham!

    be nicer if the seller introduced them selves and said this might be what you are looking for . honesty is the best policy .
    its not a mini artic so i cant like it can i ?ha ha not really . but space for storage is missing .
    maybe the op will put us straight .

    Well even though he has not introduced him self, I think he has made a half decent job of a disabled frendly camper -Plus points room for a chair,disirable engine and auto box- minus points for me are all the windows ::bigsmile: but then again it would have put another 2k plus on the conversion :whatthe:Plenty of storage up above but not too sure how a wheelchair bound person would reach it all ::bigsmile:

    firstly well done in trying

    Firstly I would say well done who ever tried to make a disabled conversion.. not enough people try.

    However it looks like an Ambulance converted or an OAP home van... not very attractive sorry to say.

    I have seen a Australian Winnebago advert where they have done a production wheelchair (on the side) and still has the original door for the habitation.. fold p bed etc., and a wet room. It looks like a motor home and it is a motor home. Ok I suspect it cost a lot more than this offering. But would I buy it? NO

    I am selling my present RV to get a toy hauler and that is at least an RV with a garage.. OK a big garage. But I would never consider a van conversion like this. Not designed for the purpose sorry to say.

    But I am sure it would allow someone in a wheelchair to get out... but do check the rating of the lift.. often installed under weight and will not lift a power chair.

    Not saying everything is right or wrong with the conversion but for the money it just may give a disabled person a couple of nights away :Smile: They may not have infinite fund's but this may well be a alternative.
    I remember a few years back seeing a lady with no legs and her large husband in a small Renault extra van (escort sized) and a gazebo, she was in that allday and slept in the van.It has got to be better than that :thumb:

    do not make the mistake

    Terry do not make the mistake that disabled people are unable to afford things. It may be true of some, but I know a lot of disabled people being one myself that have a lot of disposable income. Same as never assume that disabled people do not work or have money from various sources.

    Not making the mistake Bob: Wink: merely saying it may well provide a first step into the world of M/Hs for a disabled person not wanting to spend a fortune: thumb:
    Personaly way too many windows left in and do not like the layout :Smile:
    terry
    Any way given the OP way too much free advertising

    its a complete disaster, cant even get to the front to drive it let alone use the shower. . okay for a wheelchair passenger if they like roughing it. looks more like a glorified day care bus.

    Bob , dont make the mistake of thinking every disabled person has loads of dosh like yourself, there are far more on or near the breadline (at least in this area) than have plenty of disposable income. Yes YOU and some others may be able to afford what you want, but there are plenty out there that are struggling, not only the disabled I may add.

    its not whats coming in that counts .
    its how you spend it . thats what really matters .
    lots of folk with loads of income dont own the clothes they stand up in .
    yet a tramp owns every thing he has.
