My wife is disabled but haven't had to do any mods for her yet as she can still move around just not as good as before. She used to help me set up when we arrived at the campgrounds now the mods are to help me set up. I've got it down to about 15 min to set up the main parts, Camper, Awning, outside carpet and lawn chairs. Another 30 min to get everything else in order.

Richard, welcome to the forum. I'm not sure what info you are looking for or if you own a RV at this time. I am disabled but am able to walk short distance and go up and down the steps. We bought our RV after I became disabled and that was a big factor in what we bought. I didn't feel that I could deal with a trailer of any kind so a MH was our only option. I also have a tough time driving long distance so the MH works great. We can pull into a rest area and take a short nap or just lay down to rest the neck. It does limit us as to how much we can do but we do what we can and have fun doing it. Sitting at home feeling sorry for myself wasn't a option. I hope this helps and good luck.

Thanks everyone for your replies. I own a 2014 Sunseeker 3010ds. I had a bad motorcycle accident 5 years ago, pick up truck ran a stop sign, destroyed my right leg and hip, now hip is fused and no knee. I can walk short distances with cane, but scooter is always with me. Getting in and out of this MH is easier with handholds it has, old one didn't have any. Impossible to get from driver's seat to back of MH, have to exit driver's door and go around. Really wanted a Class A this time, but just too hard to get over the engine cover. I love the big outside storage in this MH, now my wife doesn't have to struggle putting large items (chairs, folding table) inside the coach. Still trying to figure out some way to reach the driver's seat slide to adjust it once I'm seated.

Richard: sorry to hear about your accident. I'm a motorcycle rider and I'm always worried about "the other guy" out there. My wife rides now and I warn her constantly about the hazards. We have the same MH you do. We love the storage and counter space.

Richard thanks for sharing and sorry to here about your wreck. I was hit on mine April 2012 by a distracted driver I'm a hurry. Of course you know what she said "I didn't see him ". That added to the neck and back issue. Glad it's working for you and hope to see you on the road sometime. We are I'm St Augustine to participate in a FROG rally. Good luck to you.
