Side Entry Conversion Vehicles

There are different styles of conversion options, specifically side-entry conversion vehicles. One of the more popular conversion types, side-entry vans, or other vehicles usually house ramps that’ll fold out from the bottom or inside of the vehicle. Some benefits to side-entry wheelchair vehicles include:

  • Direct access to the curb for simple pick-up and drop off
  • Many popular models of traditional vehicles are convertible to side-entry

While side-entry wheelchair vehicles have ample conversion model styles, there are considerations to this style of conversion if you choose to see if your vehicle qualifies for it. More interior space is typically required for this style of conversion, which could eliminate some passenger room in the vehicle. Also, side exterior space for the vehicle for the ramp’s deployment would be needed.

Rear Entry Conversion Vehicles

Another style wheelchair van conversion manufacturers like Freedom Motors USA are able to replicate is known as rear-entry conversion. This allows for the wheelchair ramp to deploy from the rear or cargo area of the vehicle. While this style of conversion doesn’t allow for a wheelchair passenger to sit in the passenger or driver’s side of a vehicle, some benefits to this style include:

  • Less modification of the interior typically, allowing for side or middle seats to remain within the vehicle for additional passenger room
  • Side doors don’t have to be blocked if a folding ramp is used

This style also offers the option of opening the vehicle from the rear, allowing for less exterior space than the traditional side-entry vehicle, however, if you’re parallel parking, it can be a challenge for simple entry or exit.
