Trabasack – Bag a Table Anywhere

The Trabasack lap tray and bag product range is designed with universality in mind. Early adopters included wheelchair users who realised how fantastic the products were as wheelchair lap trays but in fact, the Trabasack is a wholly multiuse product and an ideal space saving device for your holidays and general caravan pursuits.

The Trabasack products combine a bag compartment and sturdy lap tray, ideal for use as a food tray at campsites when space is tight and you’re dining al fresco. What’s more, if you’re planning a hike or countryside excursion, Trabasack is ideal for packing your essential bits and bobs in the bag compartment and when you stop for a snack or to engage in any artistic pursuit perhaps, you can use your Trabasack as a portable table. Small and compact, as well as extremely lightweight, the Trabasack product range is designed with all potential users in mind and the range of carry options, additional straps and Velcro-friendly Connect surface option make it appeal to a wide audience. What’s more the hardy canvas material is both waterproof and durable, making the product fantastic for use in all environments.

The Trabasack team are pleased to be at the Motorhome and Caravan Fair to offer their product to a wide audience and show how useful it can be, for a wide range of users from those wanting a safe place to keep their hot drink round the campfire, to artists needing a flat surface for their sketch pad whilst up in the moors.

Mountain Trike – the All-terrain Wheelchair Company

Mountain Trike markets itself as the active chair for active people and offers users the chance to venture out in any terrain, widening opportunities and accessibility. They both sell and rent out their trikes and the extra functionality provided by the product is in addition, not instead of, the regular functionality you would expect from a standard wheelchair. Developed initially as a university engineering product, things are only getting better for the company and anyone interested in seeing their product and the versatility it provides, is welcome to approach the stand at the Motorhome Fair.
The chance to exhibit their product at an event aimed at the general public gives the Mountain Trike team a chance to show how their trike allows wheelchair users to access all the same activities as those who aren’t and how enjoying pursuits such as caravanning are not restricted or inaccessible.

Both Trabasack and Mountain Trike will be happy to answer any questions and provide any information about their product ranges at the Motorhome and Caravan Fair in Newark and look forward to seeing you there.
