    Which Truck Conversion is Best

    I am seriously considering getting rid of my van and buying a truck. I'm sick of the constant transferring and struggling to get up my ramp. I have seen two different conversions, the SVM Mobility(Previously GoSchichi) and ATC conversions. Not sure which one is better. Has anyone had any experience with either one? What are the Pros and Cons?

    No experience here other than seeing that it is a heavy modification. You can probably see one in person at that Abilities Expo thing coming up soon, they had one there last year (if you are still where your location says you are)

    I would love a truck but there are 2 negative's for me!
    1. Price!!!!WOW
    2. I cant drive from my chair. Manual chair and how uncomfortable!

    Are there options for not driving from your chair? Without some arm coming down and picking up the chair. The reason for a truck is for the room and if there is some big arm in the bed that takes away from the space in the bed.

    1. How much are these conversions on average?
    2. I'm with you on this. It'd be nice if once the lift goes up, you could transfer into the drivers seat then the lift with your chair could rotate into the back seat area.

    that's awesome. I hate being in my power chair much rather be in my manual chair. After 8 years of waiting I think its time for me to get something like that. I much prefer driving from a seat but my parents arnt getting any younger and it would benefit all of us if I would stick to a power chair. How do you like it? I like the looks of that and the rhino much better than the Goshie. I also like the fact that you can keep the back seat.
