If due to arthritis you cannot walk more than 60 mtrs and apply for an invalid parking badge, will it affect your HGV entitlement?

Most definitely yes, I would inform DVLA for advice.

Ps,
Read the above assuming the OP had his HGV for lorries, didn’t think of a RV.

I didn't think driving a vehicle over 3.5 ton involved a lot of walking ?

Depends on the reason for needing the invalid badge I would have thought. It might be well worth considering what grounds to apply on I suspect its very difficult to retract anything that is said in the application and if your GP is signing it they would have to take it into account in considering the HGV renewal.

First of all it’s not an invalid badge, it’s a blue badge. There are several funsters whom I’m aware of, who are wheelchair bound, and one of them definitely drives a hand controlled HGV RV and tows a trailer with his car on. Perhaps they may be along to clarify.

Our motorhome is 4.25t
I am on DLA and get mobility allowance and therefore pay no roadtax on one vehicle - I chose the motorhome without any problems

I stick my blue badge in the windscreen clip when driving or passenger - as long as the badge user is IN the vehicle there's no problem
