Hubby, (71 yrs young) can walk some, but uses an electric wheelchair
98%. Unfortunately, for the moment our genealogy hunt is limited to the
"local library" and the "internet library" due to unreliable
Since most auto dealers want you to "take what they have" rather than
"selling you what you need"...we would appreciate feedback from other
"wheelchair researchers" who have purchaced "newer vans" to give us an
idea as to which van models work and do not work with a wheelchair!!!
If this is "off topic", we appologise in advance. Please contact us via
e-mail (byrdie(a)speedgate.net) with your response, rather than here on
Our current vehicle is a 95 Ford Astrovan (long wheelbase- extended
cargo area) It has the rear door that lifts "up" rather than swings
"out". We use a "hoist type" lift mounted in the cargo area in the
of the van. Its more convenient than the "platform type" lift (that
mounts inside the passenger area). We would like to replace it with a
van with similar features.
Once our transportation woes are resolved, we shall be glad to return
and help get those needing Central Louisiana researching woes resolved!!!
