    Mini van fit

    I'm thinking of getting a mini van as a back-up vehicle. I drive from my chair (Permobil C300). Does anybody know if the front wheel drive or anti-tip wheels will be too wide to fit in the driver slot? I'm leaning toward a Chrysler or Dodge (about 2002 to 2014). Thanks

    I drive my 2018 Pacifica from my Permobil F5 VS with the only issue being the left armrest; I either live with it rub against the door or I remember to flip it up before I lock in.

    How do you like the Pacifica Mize? I'm in the market and looking at Pacifica and Toyota. I thought the interior of the Honda was too cramped in the back.

    I bought a VMI in floor ramp and I like it other than it's noisy as hell on the highway. If I had time to wait (I didn't) I'd get the Braun fold out as it's much quieter. I have a Toyota Sienna for my manual and it handles like a sports car compared to the ramp van. The Toyota just has a Speedy Lift and a driver's seat that drops down for transfers.

    Hi I drive a venture chevy van from my C300 permobil. It works ok the driving but the venture van itself is a piece of crap. I miss my ford van.

    Same here, only I have a Permobil m300 and Honda Odyssey with a VMI conversion. I don't perceive that the driver's side of the van has different dimensions than the passenger side. Maybe it is a matter of placement of the lock down box.
