Go to any motorhome show and it’s obvious that there’s a sizable number of potential buyers who use wheelchairs and are looking for a motorcaravan to suit their particular needs.

A big round of applause then, for Italian firm SeA for bravely going where few other motorhome manufacturers have dared. It has launched a specially converted model for disabled buyers. Based on the Elnagh Clipper 40, the CPT is a completely standalone model, offering a unique layout with a wheelchair lift. Its merits have never been fully tested by a disabled user until this exclusive Practical Motorhome live-in test. My wife Sarah has restricted mobility and uses a wheelchair most of the time, so the prospect of a motorhome that makes life easier was exciting indeed. To test just how much easier the CPT makes touring we decided to take it to sunny Skegness, on the east coast, for a few days. The British seaside resort is a wheelchair-friendly town thanks to its elderly population and so it was a good venue in which to see what the CPT could do. Packed up with provisions and two kids in tow, we made our way to the excellent Lakeside Park which is run by Don Amott, up the coast from Skegness, near Somercotes. We lived in the CPT to see how it performed on tour, on the road and among the built-up traffic in town.
