Default Wheelchair friendly / adapted caravans

I stumbled across this caravan this morning, so I thought I'd post the link for anyone needing the extra space.
http://www.willerby.com/rio-gold-whe...n1-uk-m135.php

There are obviously many more, so if anyone knows of any more, or you see one when you are looking around, could you kindly post a link on this thread please. and which area/site you have seen it on. Thank you

I've added links to previous posts.

Did anyone manage to see any 'wheelchair friendly' statics on display anywhere this year? Either at shows or on display on Caravan site's?

Thanks Angela B.

I saw the Rio in Hull this year. For the money its a good unit.

Pemberton make the best adapted caravans I've seen. They don't lose the luxary feel which is oftem a problem. To be fair a lot of adapted units are built for hire fleets which tent to be a bit more basic.

There's also a show on in Manchester.

The nice thing about Pemberton is their build quality and willingness to make changes to their designs to suit the customer.

There are other manufacturers who will make changes to caravans to meet customers demands and needs. Carnaby for example are great.

This flexibility is important as different customers have different levels of needs. We have a 30 x 12 Stella Daybreak (can't decide if we should sell on park or into the trade), it has a minor set of changes from the standard model. It had a wide front door for wheelchair access, sliding doors on the bedrooms & bathroom and an easy access shower. Appart from that it's a standard double glazed, centrally heated unit. The kitchen has a wide passage, but the units are a standard height.

I suspect that in many cases people who need to make changes should start with a standard caravan and have it tweaked in the factory. One of my customers went through lots of caravans looking for the right one, in the end she opted for a BK Sheraton. It needed no adaptation as she was able to get around the whole caravan, it worked right out of the fictory. She was extra happy as she did not really want an adapted caravan, she wanted a high spec unit which the whole family would enjoy.

The Blue Anchor sales site, had a disabled built van, on their showground late last year. If memory serves me (at all), it was in the 18,000 range. If i'd had the money, i'd have bought it myself, fabulous van. They're just outside Skeggy, and Ingoldmells.
