Physically Impaired? A Bumper Pull Travel Trailer Can Work For You

by on Mar.21, 2011, under Travel

Most all motor homes you find on the market are able to be adapted for any type of physical challenge. Even towable units, such as the bumper pull travel trailer, can be purchased as such or adapted. You can still live on the road in an RV or with a bumper pull travel trailer if you are disabled. Spend time doing good research and find an RV or towable that suits your traveling needs.

A bumper pull travel trailer is a type of towable motor home unit. It is hitched to a bumper that is located at the rear of a larger vehicle. This larger vehicle is often a pick up truck or SUV that can pull a large load. You can find a bumper pull travel trailer in many sizes with a variety of layouts. You will have to make an educated decision as to which type of bumper pull travel trailer or larger RV, such as a Class A motor home, you would like.

Wheelchair accessibility for the RV or bumper pull travel trailer

If you use a wheelchair and would like to own a motor home or towable unit, then one tool that may be beneficial to you is a wheelchair restraint system. This allows your chair to be stabilized when the RV or bumper pull travel trailer is in motion.

RVs are also wheelchair accessible when the towable or motor coach has a lift. The lift resembles that of an elevator and raises the chair from the ground level to the level of the recreational vehicle. If you buy used, double check to make sure the lift is in safe operations before purchasing or using.

Technological advances for RVs

If you are a person who has a disability, but is not in a wheelchair, there are technological advanced installations or custom made operations just for your needs. For example, it is possible to install a left foot accelerator into the RV for the driver. There are other types of devices to aid the driver, too, such as brake assistance, steering assistance, and even touch pad controls.

More helpful tools for RVers with disabilities

In addition to the tools that were previously mentioned, some RVs have been designed and built with lower leveled appliances, faucets, and light switches. Some fifth wheel trailers or motor homes have wider sized doors, including in the shower area.

If you are in the market for a new or used recreational vehicle or towable RV unit, but are physically challenged, there is an option for you. There are safe and affordable ways for you to enjoy your life on the road just as any other person. Begin your research today.
