    Ricon VMI Slideaway lift

    Today I looked at and tried a VMI Slideaway lift. On the positive side it seems absolutely rock solid compared to the old Vanagator I tried. But once inside the van it took up a lot of space. Neither of those vans had 6 way seats so I could not test transfering, but I am positive it would not have been an issue in the Vanagator equipped van. The Slideaway, however took up what seemed like a lot of floor space and now I am having second thoughts if I can maneuver my chair into position to transfer into the passenger seat since the Slideaway lift sticks out so far into the cab.

    Does anyone have one of these Slideaways or experience with them? If I was using a smaller chair I might not be so worried, but this Iglide has fairly large presence.
    Here is a file photo of one:

    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.
