    sliding door threshold

    I'm planning a stay at an airbnb that has a sliding glass door. I'm trying to figure out how elaborate I need to get rampwise to cross the threshold without messing up the doorway. I'm in a powerchair.

    I appreciate hearing any suggestions/experience folks might have for a temporary situation like this.

    Is there a small step down on the outdoor side of the sliding glass door? This is pretty common, and makes ramping a little more difficult. If not, you can use a threshold ramp on either side of the door and set them up so they meet or nearly meet over the track. Not cheap though.
