Authors comments
Helena and her husband investigated the market to find a suitable ceiling lift for the RV.
The Molift is a compromise. It weighed less than any other lift they found and was also the only one that sat high enough (the RV ceiling height in 195 cm, which is a limitation). The lift is also the only one that can handle such a narrow turn.

The lift is still clumsy and the user would have preferred a more convenient model.
