Custom designed Wheelchair Accessible Caravan built on an AL-KO chassis, built to a bespoke layout to meet the customers’ requirements.
-A space saving bed solution was created for the twin berth required, in a bunk bed format. The bed for the wheelchair user was in a fixed position low to the floor to allow for smooth transfer. The second carers bed is an electrical lowering bed, which means it can be stowed away in the caravan roof when not required to again assist with transfer, but then once the lower bed occupant is in bed the electric bed is lowered to a height of 130cm accessible by ladder for the career.
-A hoist rail was installed during the build of the caravan, running the length of the caravan, with a specially reinforced ceiling to accommodate the weight supported by the hoist, and a person hoist fitted prior to handover.
-The customers wanted a small dining area in which the wheelchair user could comfortably sit at the dining table in their chair, so a single sided dinette was designed, leaving the second side free of obstruction for the wheelchair user.
-The kitchen has all the facilities required, with twin gas hob, 90l fridge, microwave with grill, sink and storage cupboards. The sink and hob were fitted with glass top covers which provides additional worktop space when not in use.
-Storage is maximised with use of overhead cupboards and has a full-length wardrobe.
-The caravan has a large wheelchair friendly wet room with sliding door to allow for easy wheelchair manoeuvrability and no obstructive thresholds.
-A fully automatic underfloor wheelchair lift was fitted.
-The caravan was also fitted with an Enduro Automover, which allows the caravan to be positioned and moved by remote control when not connected to the tow vehicle.
