I am back from the Leisurefest with photos and ideas to share.
Firstly, I want to show the one caravan that I am voting the BEST new caravan on the block.
This caravan is not for everyone but it services the need of a large section of the population. I am talking about, the ->
Accessavan. Wheelchair accessible caravans.
It is about time too.
The Accessible Caravans have been designed for people in wheelchairs by people in wheelchairs. I hope to see quite a few of these on the road, on our next Australian tour.
I’m very happy to ‘plug’ this product as I admire good design and fulfilment of need.
The accessavan has a fully accessible, wheel –in toilet/shower.
Their brochure says
ACCESS & EQUITY = INDEPENDENCE & DIGNITY
There is a range of options including slide out ramps, hydrolic ramps and lifts.
Custom bed heights, custom made mattress.
Over bed ceiling hoists and hooks
Wide wheelchair turning area.
Folding tables and seats,
Handrails fitted everywhere.
Low bench heights.
Caravans built to your individual needs.

This was NOT a paid add or review by accessavan, I was genuinely impressed by the design and love helping get the information ‘out there’, that the nomad way f life is now accessible to even more people.
Near the Accessavan display is a caravan insurance advice van. Reg and I found it pays to shop around rather than just insuring your caravan with the firm recommended by the caravan sales people. I like to find out as much as I can before speaking directly, face to face with insurance representatives.
