    Does anyone have any experience with the T&C being modified
    with a lowered floor for power wheelchair use? There are several
    companies that will do this ($10K). Any comments are
    appreciated. Thanks in advance.

  2. I wouldn't use a T&C but each to his own. Frankly, with the number
    of really great condition vehicles out there that have already been
    wheelchair converted, if it was me I'd be looking for a used full size
    van. I mean, look at Ebay 200109014409, the works, selling for

    There is a modification for T&C where a chairlift bolts to where a removed
    bucket seat is removed. Then the carseat becomes a wheelchair. Very easy
    to load/unload person in wheelchair. It is also cheaper then lower floor

    Drove a modified T&C for about a month. Had nothing but problems with the
    ramp sliding out and the van stopped kneeling. Also very uncomfortable for
    my dad in wheelchair.
