Recently, I’ve been taking a group of senior citizens on short outdoor excursions in southern Utah. We’ve been to Zion National Park, Kolob Reservoir, Cedar Breaks National Monument, Brianhead, and Pipe Springs National Monument, all within the past year. Watching the faces of these seniors as they experience some of southern Utah’s natural treasures has helped me to see the world through a different set of eyes. So has trying to help them navigate the sidewalks and access the restrooms, picnic tables and other necessary facilities which are intended for public use. Even in our national parks, wheelchair accessibility is not what it should be. Most of us underestimate the number of obstacles which hinder travel and leave our less mobile friends feeling isolated and helpless.
Now that I’m more aware of the challenges faced by those with special needs, I’ve been watching for products which will allow them to enjoy the amazing natural resources that surround us. One of the best I’ve found is the Accessible Travel Trailers by Harbor View.
The Harbor View features an electric tongue jack for easy access. A simple hand-held device allows you to quickly set up your unit, with slide outs, front & rear stabilizer jacks, exterior lights and an electric awning. The remote-controlled, commercial-grade Ricon K2003 chair lift and oversized entry door provide plenty of room for a scooter or wheel chair.
Spacious interiors are well designed to provide the utmost comfort and convenience. The kitchen includes abundant recessed halogen lighting conveniently located throughout. The bathrooms feature a “rolll-in” shower, adjustable shower head and stainless steel assist bars.
