Are you suffering from mobility problems? You aren’t the only one! There are many people dealing with mobility issues.
Mobility symptoms can range from joint stiffness to poor balance or coordination.

With Leisure Access, it’s easy to make a few adjustments and make life easy and enjoyable again. Read on for tips to make mobile home living relaxing again, and see what works for you!
You might be finding the hardest part of your caravan is entering and exiting the vehicle. The steps are too high, there is no handlebar to help with support, and it’s just too exhausting to even attempt the stairs.
Adding a set of portable folding stairs or a powered step will decrease your struggle and make it easier to reach your doorway.
Powered lifts are exactly what they sound like: a platform powered to lift you up or down to the top of your entrance-way. Once installed, use the included remote to navigate your way up or down in the doorway of your mobile home.
Portable folding stairs are the less expensive option if a power lift isn’t in your budget. The steps fold out to decrease the distance between steps and fold up when you’re finished using them for easy storage.
They also have a non-slip surface and include four steps that gradually rise to the top of your doorway.
If you don’t need the help of a power lift or portable steps, but just need more support when making your way up or down, consider a suction support bar.
Similar to a support rail found in a shower, the suction bar fixes to the outside of your caravan to offer extra support when needed. They work well in muddy or wet conditions to prevent slips and falls.
Not just for outside use, they can also work inside anywhere you may need mobility help. Easy to install and remove from any surface, this will ensure easier access and a more enjoyable surrounding.
Mobile Home the Right Way
With so many tools and accessories to help with mobility issues, there’s no reason to completely change your lifestyle. Adding a power lift, portable stairs, or a suction support bar can go a long way.
Don’t let mobility problems or old age stop you from enjoying your caravan home. Adding the right accessories for you will allow you to live healthier and longer in your caravan.
