    The New TiLite GPV uhmm.. I mean Aero R

    Well, who can blame me? For $300 more than the GPV, you can get a TiLite rigid frame that looks like what Quickie should have done to update the GPV years ago--TiLite's new Aero R. Similarities include aluminum construction, a classic "box" frame with a straight lower frame rail, adjustable caster barrel location, and a "V" front end. The Aero R may be a decent alternative for someone wanting to install an EZ-Lock docking pin to be able to drive from their chair in a van. Actually, a van would almost be a prerequisite, because it looks like it would be extremely difficult to load into a sedan or store in the trunk.

    Don't expect me to provide any detailed reviews of this model anytime soon.

    The Quickie GPV has a back bottom cross member making it a true cage like box. Looking at this picture of the TiLite I see no such back bottom cross member. Without that member maneuvering the chair into a sedan seems much more a doable thing. Of course if the back doesn't lock down, it could be troublesome.
    I have had periodic paralysis all my life. I lost my ability to walk in 2011 beginning with a spinal block, which was used for a hip fracture caused by periodic paralysis.

    This is a four year old post, but since you mention it, I use a 17" wide seat and I would have an extremely difficult time fitting it into my Honda Accord--especially if having to load it while sitting in the driver's seat.

    Sorry, I got caught in the posting date. I'd have a tough time getting it in our Taurus, but it probably would go in. My 16" Quickie GVP will not. It wasn't until I found a cheap 17" Colours Eclipse that I could drive the sedan again. It enabled me to take my license renewal exam with the hand control. Otherwise I'd have to learn to parallel park the 3/4 ton van I usually drive.
