Steps For A Disabled People?

My mum is disabled and struggles to get in and out of our van with the step that came with it. Over the last few days I've been looking around, but so far can only find this one on EBay:

Does anyone know of other steps that have a handle like this and have quite a wide footplate area? She really needs the handle as it makes her 100% more confident. I'd like the choice of a few if there are any out there, rather than just buying this one because its the only thing I can find!

 

Cheers

What about one of these ? You can get these second hand on Ebay and caravan websites in the classifieds .

A Milenco double step and a handle on the van that doubles as a door lock may be better.

We won't have sinkage on the seasonal plot as there is a little slabbed area outside the van. If we had the handle, I'd need to get someone in to fit it, though. My DIY isnt upto drilling holes in the caravan.

 

My brother is convinced he's seen a wide, two step with handle somewhere, but I'm danged if I can find one!

 

The powerstep would be nice, but after just looking on EBay its beyond our budget. It was almost as much as we paid for the whole van! :o

Handrails

 

Caravan steps are available in both bolt-on and freestanding form and can be supplied with an optional painted stainless steel handrail, which will fit either side of the frame, or both sides if required.

 

Maybe a phone call is a good idea?

 

The only drawback maybe the door opening properly.
