    Is this what you all are talking about?

    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.

    Do you have to rub it in like that ? Oh how I missed by beloved swing-away! It was regulated away from the US market a decade ago...

    It's loss has really changed where I can park -- access to shopping, movies, parks are all much more limited since I can't go solo anymore

    I had one of those swing-away lifts for a couple years in a used van. I liked it as well, for the most part, but didn't like the sliding door.

    I ended buying mine from a Canadian dealer about 8 years ago. It might still be possible. I believe they had to code it as a replacement part, but I don't remember. Anyway, they shipped it to me, then I had an installer (not a Braun dealer) put it into my van.

    Sorry, I'm just learning. It appears on their website, but clicking forward to a USA dealer it is gone. It almost looked like an option. I've seen something that mounts on a motorhome you transfer to and ride up, so this should have been approved.

    We don't miss the sliding doors on full size vans a bit.

    They were a royal pia especially in the winter.

    I just bought a brand new '16 full size Express van with a sliding door. Guess what. I had to take it back the next day to fix the sliding door. Major mistake on my part, I've never had one that worked properly.
