How To Modify a Trailer for Accessibility (Up to a Point) [and] Accessibility Considerations for Home Buyers. Key Notes.
Access Group, Atlanta, GA.
Two brief fact sheets for people with disabilities provide information on: (1) modifying a trailer to make it accessible for persons with mobility impairments, especially those in wheelchairs, and (2) accessibility considerations for home buyers or home owners with mobility impairments. The first fact sheet identifies inherent problems in modifying trailers because of their small size and shortage of load bearing walls. It then makes specific modification suggestions about entrances and exits, safety, grab bars, bathrooms, halls and doorways, kitchens, and living rooms. The second fact sheet provides a check list to allow home buyers to make a comparative analysis of accessibility. The check list addresses: general considerations, site considerations, door openings, kitchens, bathrooms, interior circulation, and building elements. (DB)
