We got an Acorn a couple of years ago. Not for us, but for the Countess's father. He couldn't navigate the stairs to get into our house. We use it as a dumb waiter to get things from the garage (under the house) up to the main level - or reverse. The Countess will use it occasionally. I refuse. Those stairs provide the bulk of my exercise program!

Well, so far DH and I are in fairly decent shape and have no problems with the stairs, as yet.
But, I like your idea about using it as a dumbwaiter because we've thought that we might have to get an Acorn to transport my chubby Irish Terrier up to the second floor. He has short legs and he does not do stairs!
