I know that there are no camper vans available on Motability at the moment. However, there might be a genuine need for them and I don’t mean just for holiday breaks.
In my own case I can drive about 100 miles then I really need to rest my back until the pain goes. This is best done lying down on a bed, not in a reclining driver’s seat.
There is also a more important reason. I won’t go into the gruesome details but it’s not possible for me to use a public toilet, even one that’s designed for the disabled. Nappies are not an option.
What is required, in my case, is a bed with the equipment needed to carry out a clean if not completely sterile medical function. When that’s completed, sanitation is need.
Under the rules of PIP/AFIP, whichever applies in my case, I’ve been told I can have a Motability car. That’s nice because apart from a 999 ambulance journey two years ago, I haven’t left the house for about six years.
Short journeys would at least get me out for an hour or so but longer ones, for example a day at the seaside, would need a camper van.
Can I use AFIP to buy a second hand camper on credit? My only other income is a small government pension.
Any advice would be welcome.
