& About Me
these major modifications
have been completed
the van can accommodate
up to four wheelchair
seated occupants in comfort including one that drives
the wheelchair if needed.
Middle row of seats are permanently removed.
The front two can be removed or one removed or replaced as
required and they simply lock into a track in the floor.
They have small wheels to allow easy rolling in and out of
the van. If you drive from a wheelchair you will also need
hand controls or
electronic hand controls and some form
wheelchair tie down (see menu). Page
To see some large clear
photos of my Rollx van click these links below! Large
means very large... full 10 million pixels or 3880
wide! (for printing should you wish.)
Medium is 1024 wide. All will open in a new window.
These Chrysler minivan conversions are very flexible. They
can be converted into extremely comfortable luxury
drive from wheelchair vans. They are very lazy and easy to both use and
drive with every conceivable electronic toy and creature comfort - they do everything for you. The
latest 2007 models are absolutely superb and have everything you will ever need
including remote controlled side doors and tailgate.
They are built on an almost production line basis before ever being
registered with superb quality of build and
attention to detail. They ride and drive as smoothly and quietly as a
standard vehicle (which is class leading) and have a real luxury limo "feel"
with the extra space inside due to the 10 inch lowered floor and the middle row of seats
being removed. Your passengers will feel like real VIPs!
If you want
a vehicle that can be converted (or has been converted) for driving from a
wheelchair then there are one or two alternatives as of 2007. This is
possibly the best!
you approach this van you press a button on the remote key fob. Three things
sliding door opens.
As this is
happening the van kneels. (Suspension lowers to allow easier less steep
The ramp in the
picture below deploys automatically.
Once inside the
reverse happens and you are ready to roll! I just drive up to the steering
wheel in my wheelchair and the device mounted on the floor grabs hold of my
chair. Put ignition key in and drive away. It takes seconds only.
If you order a
right hand drive Chrysler Minivan then the ramp is on the left side opposite to
the steering wheel. If you order a left hand drive US spec rampvan the
ramp is on the right. The complete floor pan is a mirror image on these
vehicles. Its not just about the steering wheel. And one side door is
wider than the other. So it has to be this way.
The other main difference
is that the left hand drive US imported ones are about £20,000 cheaper! I kid
you not. Steering Developments import the Braun Entervan. It looks
exactly the same as my Rollx Dodge SXT van (although called a Chrysler Grand
Voyager) but because its right hand drive it
costs an amazing £53,000 UK Pounds! Mine was £30,000k including the
wheelchair tie-down and hand controls as well as importing and transport costs
etc. Braun vans are very slightly more expensive anyway though although as far
as I can tell no different in quality to the Rollx van.
Chryslers van with a decent set of
wheels on it looks pretty cool! Not every wheelchair user wants to look
like one you see! . (See my other VW van elsewhere on this site!) There are cheaper alternatives
for a drive from wheelchair vehicle but
this is definitely the best, easiest and most stylish way to go as far as
Room for my powerchair! I drive sat in this wheelchair.
In the USA
they are all 3.8 litre V6 engines (nice and powerful but you may need to
consider a LPG conversion at 37p per litre in Europe!) and in Europe they
are either 3.3 litre (not a nice engine - very thrashy and less low down power) or 2.8 litre Common Rail Diesel (CRD)
sourced from Mercedes (Daimler/Chrysler) which is a much better choice if you value your wallet. It
has 4 cylinders only and is (like all diesels) noisy and has all its power in
one big lump!
However the nicest to drive by far is the imported 3.8 litre V6 one.
Needless to say mines a 3.8 V6 Auto! (they are all auto anyway...) Shame
the UK cannot get the 3.8 in a Chrysler Voyager, because we get stuck with the
less nice 3.3 or the diesel which is a shame.
A better bet is
the 3.8 V6 with a LPG conversion! That gives the
smooth power of the big V6 with better economy than the
diesel by a mile! Best of all worlds then. Faster
quieter cheaper to run and smoother!
And unlike the deseasel its very quiet
