Startracks Custom RV Seat Lift was developed for people who have any difficulty ascending or descending steps. This handicap technology is primarily developed for recreational vehicles, but can include any application that provides the proper installation criteria, which is not demanding. The assistive seat lift can be installed in campers, Class A, B, and C motor homes, fifth-wheel trailers, camper trailers, and van conversions. You can still enjoy all the fun and luxury of traveling in the RV you already own!
Startracks Custom RV Seat Lift is engineered for durability and ease of use and doesn't require modification of the RV doorway. The unit is professionally installed on the interior of the RV next to the entrance. The lift can be installed on either side of the entry door of many RV's and on the right side as you exit in a front entry vehicle. The assistive seat lift is powered by a 12 Volt DC motor with hydraulic actuator and operated by a wireless remote system much like the one you use to lock and unlock a car door. The required space to install the lift is 9 inches wide, 4 inches deep and 72 inches in height. The lift is rated for up to 300lbs, but the installation can be reinforced for 500lbs for a small cost.
The user sits on the durably made seat lift chair seat, accessible from a wheelchair, scooter or walker. The user depresses the hand-held wireless control button, rises gently on the vertical lift, and swings the chair through the door opening into the interior of the RV. The carrier arm/articulating double-hinged design allows the custom chair to turn to any angle for easy entrance and departure. Safety switches are installed internally. When you are ready to enter or exit the vehicle, the user sits on the seat and uses the remote to lower or raise themselves. A simple push transports oneself in or out of the entry door.
When traveling, the chair and swing arm assembly is easily removed and internally stored. The seat is removed by lifting it off of the carrier arm/articulating hinge. The seat can be stored inside the vehicle or in an external cargo bay. The carrier arm/articulating hinge can be lowered into the step well for travel and quick access for inserting the seat. A non-destructive mount installation by the door of your RV is a small price to pay for the liberties enjoyed.
