I know I posted a request about this some time ago and I did get some helpful response, but I thought I would ask again as I have had no luck yet in my search and by bumping it back onto the front page (so to speak) someone new may be able to help.

My better half is disabled and, though she can stand and walk a little, she finds climbing into the MH near impossible. there is a portable lift device (PowerStep) available, but at over £2K is somewhat more than I hoped to spend.

I'm not a skinflint and I will probably have to give in and fork out the full whack, but I thought/hoped that some Funster might know of a second hand one that has become available.

Thanks everyone and aint it nice to see the first hint of spring.

Hi Brenboo,

I'm very interested and have sent you a PM. I'm a bit late (not too late I hope) in responding to this post. I don't know how I missed it. Sorry about your broken hip; is there nothing that can be done?

Hi there are plenty of ex ambulances and mini buses out there for sale why not message the sellers and see if they will sell you one/take one off as most will not require them as part of a build so it does not reflet on the prices the vehicles bring :winky:

Please excuse this bump, but I want to keep reminding my fellow Funsters just in case.

Try the above :winky: lots on sale on ebay --it could be worth buying a ambulance removing the lift then selling the ambulance on -provided you but one at the right price you could end up getting the lift for nowt ::bigsmile:

Well a Powerstep lift is a great solution and works well for us. But, bought new, they are hellishly expensive and hard to acquire second hand. We were very lucky, as a disabled lady, who had given up caravanning, found my post on here, by Googling ‘Powerstep lift’, and we were able to acquire her's at a fair price. So you may be lucky. I do hope so.

Just came across all your posts, I've been looking for a step lift for my hubby to get in and out of MH and have found company called Motorstep. They are a hell of a lot cheaper than any others. Hope this helps others with same problem

Thank you Rainbow6 for tip re power steps. Sadly, because of a family member suffering a stroke, with severe restrictions on mobility, have decided, very regrettably and reluctantly, to change to a caravan! It's easier to get into than the motorhome we had. We hope to continue camping with the Funsters, if they'll have us?
Best wishes boyart23

Got to admit , i've never heard of a lift for a motorhome . However , recently i've seen an advert somewhere for just such a thing , and i thought of you . Trouble is i can't remember where i'd seen it . They were advertising wide door conversion's too for wheelchair's too , i'm trying to locate it .

Thanks Airwave. I'm sorted now. We were lucky that a lady in Bristol saw My post on MHF and got in touch. She had a Powerstep lift to dispose of and sold it to me for about half the price of a new one. But thanks again for responding.
