    DIY Beach wheelchair

    I found pvc beach wheelchairs on google which lead me here. One was a push version. Another was a rickshaw version.
    I would like plans to build one for my 91 years young Mom.
    Please point me in the right direction.
    If you have plans kindly email them to me
    Thank you!

    It'll get moved into the right forum.

    I don't have plans, but here is a picture of one next to my everyday chair. Transporting is a consideration, because they get big quick.

    Here is another:

    Here is a place that sells you a kit to make:

    Here is a DIY PVC one:

    I'd suggest checking for a rental-they're widely available, even powered ones.
    We rented a powered one for a few days, in Alabama, a couple years ago, for a reasonable cost.
    The rental place delivered it. We didn't have to maintain, store, or haul it around.
    Just my 2 cents..............
