There is easier access to front seats with plenty of extra seating for another wheelchair and non-disabled passengers. It is especially convenient for wheelchair drivers with adaptive seats as it allows them to enter and exit the vehicle completely unassisted.
One of the problems often cited with side entry vans has been its narrow entry width. FR Conversions eliminates this problem with a generous 31” wide entry. It’s the widest ramps in the industry.
