    Baby steps to mortgage freedom for beanielou.

    Baby steps to mortgage freedom for beanielou. 4th Nov 14 at 2:19 PM
    My first thread on the MFW board!!
    My mortgage has 6 & 1/2 years left to run.
    My income seems to decrease more & more & it becomes more & and more of a challange to pay my hefty(to me) mortgage.
    I have managed an overpayment last month as I got some £££'s unexpectedly.
    My biggest fear is not being able to pay my mortgage & loosing my home.
    So I have decided that baby steps are the way forward~even a fiver or a tenner overpaid in a month is better than nothing.

    3. Click on arrow by "search members" (at right of the bar "MoneySavingExpert.com Forums: Members List"). That will bring up the search box.

    Beanie it's not just you on forgetting how to do stuff like member searches on here - always takes me a while to remember, too!

    Blue skies and sunshine here today -but pretty windy - which means that within moments of stepping out of the door I was questioning my decision to put a dress on, and thanking goodness for thick tights!

    Well, taking the details from here: http://www.betterlifehealthcare.com/view/shoprider-whisper-mobility-scooter/607/ since it's better, and comparing with the previous airlites 3/4.

    It has two batteries in comparison to the airlite 1. It gets a better range though, 12 mile vs 8 - though the airlite is a shade faster.

    The heaviest bit is 18kg vs the airlites 14kg - though overall weight is the same.

    Ground clearance is identical.

    There do seem to be a lot of accessories available, but you'd need to see if any were of value to you. Fluffy dice are available elsewhere.

    It's more expensive than the airlite(s), but the seat does have arms.

    What it is Z is that some people have pointed out that 4 wheels better than 3.
    Also no where up here seems to have the airlight & to send it back if unsuitible is costly.
    Am hoping to go to a couple of mobilty really soon but dont want to go on my own(all by myself.........)

    The Whisper is £589.00 - the Airtite is £399. You should be able to send it back on a slow boat to china for that difference. Also, the airtite 4 (the in-stock one) had 4 wheels with the front two widely separated. The Whisper has them close together - that will impact stability.

    Neither should be a problem provided you don't turn one way and lean the other like I used to do in my toy car when I was a very small child. Aah...the days when ride-in cars were made of metal and would travel long distances down a road on their sides without melting...

    These scooters after all only go about 3-4 mph.
