All About Full Sized Accessible Vans
When it comes to choosing and finding the perfect handicapped accessible vehicle for your needs, as well as those of your family or loved ones if they will also be using the vehicle, size is a big, important factor to take into consideration. Full sized accessible vans have a large footprint, however their size grants drivers and passengers with disabilities with additional flexibility when it comes to interior space for mobility and additional storage.
The following are common conversions included with full sized vans, as well as additional factors to take into consideration when choosing a mobility vehicle.
One of the most important things to consider in choosing between a full size van and a mini van is the engine cover. How far does it extend into the vehicle? Does the engine cover become an obstacle to easy transfer or swiveling?
Occasionally, people have suffered injury to their feet, ankles and legs because their feet got caught between the engine cover and the seat. People who need additional space would require a full size mobility van, versus a wheelchair accessible mini van.
