During the May bank holiday weekend, hundreds of wheelchair users, their families, carers and occupational therapists attended the exclusive Brotherwood WAV WEEKEND event, held at Haynes International Motor Museum.

A Brotherwood staffers shows off a WAVKey features of the event was the launch of the new Brotherwood Klastar Long, Brotherwood’s newest wheelchair-accessible iteration of the luxurious Mercedes-Benz V-Class.

Brotherwood have developed the Klastar Long in response to client feedback asking for a vehicle with a little extra usable space, without sacrificing the maneuverability and easy handling of the compact V-Class. A hugely luxurious vehicle, the V-Class packs a high specification as standard including satellite navigation, leather interior, powered tailgate and doors – the luxury of the V-Class  complimented by the discrete Brotherwood Klastar Long conversion; a full length, flat level lowered floor conversion with 57″ internal headroom and up to 6 seats; remote-controlled electric-powered access ramp with STORQ self-tensioning rear restraints; a power-assisted combined winch and restraint system, and subtle mood lighting making it the most comfortable, spacious, user-friendly and well-equipped wheelchair accessible vehicle available today.

VIP guests were also able to explore Brotherwood’s whole wheelchair accessible vehicle range, chat with expert advisers, and test drive the vehicles of their choosing – all whilst enjoying the complimentary hospitality and wonderful exhibits of one of Europe’s leading automotive museums. The Haynes International Motor Museum is the UK’s largest collection of the greatest cars from around the world.

The Brotherwood WAV Weekend each year is a unique opportunity to see, explore and try out Brotherwood’s outstanding range of Accessible Vehicle solutions under one roof. Browse the range at www.brotherwood.com
