Rich I have arthritis of the spine and major joints and for the past 18 yrs have had
Toyota RAV 4s - The newer versions have plenty of room - can fit 3 4ft destroyers
side by side and the seats are comfortable and adjustable including for height, only
downside is the petrol version is seriously thirsty.  And as an extra its great for
towing the wife's horsebox and they never seem to go wrong - well ours hasn't
(before someone starts quoting dire disasters)
I know they do them through the Motability scheme as I got my last one from a
local garage that takes in Motobility cars - ours was 2 yrs old and 6000 on the clock

Mr H.
Personally I find my Roller has been the best car I have in my stable. AS for the cars that have been recommended they all fail on one thing - there is no place to stick on the brushes!!! {-)

Now Mr H, How on earth are you going to ride that, or for that matter - where would you sit?

Ok, Mr H, where is the seat? Jocking apart, have a look at the Focus Titanium estate, seat moves in all directions and the door aperture is very wide making it easy to get in and out. The load bay is 76 inches long x 48 inches wide. That's a panel!
I chose on the size and then comfort my scooter goes in as easy as anything.

Pay attention, Mr S...the seat is under the roll cage in a safety cell, designed to prevent the driver from being thrown out in the event of a roll over, and also to protect him from the rear should anything go wrong with the sled weight..it can and has happened.


I take it that the pic was Silverstone last weekend? I always said that going round corners is a silly idea...
