Hi I am a disabled vet with neuropathy on left leg. My back is fused from C3 all the way to S1. Yes it is not a typo just a lot of surgeries and arthritis. Due to my condition I can not twist. look up or down, tilt my head to either side. I need either a walker or 2 canes to walk and I also have chronic pain. Being disabled, like your wife, makes traveling challenging. As you know airports are just a nightmare, trains better but unreliable and car travel just plain hurts. So If you guys want to travel then a motor home is the way to go. I would not recommend a pull behind or 5th wheel they are to much when setting up for your situation and then you still are traveling in a car, ok a pickup but no real difference when disabled on a long trip.
I want to see the U.S. and now being medically retired my wife and i can. So we talked and bought our 2014 Forest River 3051S.
We went to the RV show in Hershey Pa. in Sept so we could see everything out there. I HIGHLY recommend doing this. The number one thing on our list was; with my mobility limits which one will work best.
So when you guys go you need to put your wife's needs first and far ahead of anything else.
How easy is it to get in, does it have grab bars in and out?
Are the steps sturdy, how high are they of ground ( you will most likely need to buy a step stool)
In the cabin, how roomy is it, will she be able to move around, cup holders close.
In cabin can she get out of seat to get back to couch or bed and rest, can she do this without bumping you while driving
is bathroom big enough, can she get in and out of shower easily, or if she needs help is there room for someone to help her.
Is toilet height ok, not to low or high, are there grab bars or can they be added.
Bedroom, can she get in and out of bed, i know ours very high with padding added and we need to make a step for me.
In kitchen are shelves ok, is fridge easy to use. If microwave can she get to it.
These are just some of the things, i am sure i forgot some. But if she is comfortable then your trips will be stress free and you can just enjoy being together.
I have read others that say the 3051 has best layout of a class III and so far I must agree with them.
I hope you find a unit that works for you guys and you have a long time enjoying time together
