With a goal of bringing greater comfort to people traveling in wheelchairs, Winnebago recently debuted three new “accessibility-enhanced” motorhomes at the 2019 Florida RV Supershow. Intended to increase the comfort and privacy of wheelchair-using travelers, the motorhomes feature accessible spaces as well as features such as wheelchair lifts and roll-in showers, with additional options including a ceiling track mobility system, customized beds, handrails, and wall-mounted lighting.
“Our accessibility-enhanced customers are looking for the same freedom from home that many RV owners seek and in many cases the ability to travel is much more meaningful. Over the past four decades, we’ve optimized our accessibility enhancements to take them beyond simple add-ons, to developing them into design features founded in countless real-world experiences and with Winnebago’s legendary construction standards,” said Ashis Bhattacharya, Vice President, Strategic Planning and Specialty Vehicles.
