The Power Fold-Out, Dodge Grand Caravan wheelchair van is, BraunAbility’s flagship vehicle, and the most sold conversion worldwide. Easy to operate, this wheelchair accessible van boasts a spacious interior, and numerous advanced features. For instance, a single-touch power entry and exit system; Power sliding doors; Power wheelchair & scooter ramp; Automatic kneeling system (which helps reduce ramp angle), and removable front seats to allow for up-front passenger or from-the-chair driving.
The BraunAbility® Power Fold-Out, Dodge Caravan wheelchair accessible van has both power sliding side doors and ramp. The doors and ramp are operated using the factory key-fob or set of switches inside the cabin. If you experience a power failure, the ramp can still be easily operated manually.
The fold-out wheelchair ramp is 29.25 inches wide and made of lightweight aluminum with a load capacity of 1000 pounds.
In order to reduce the ramp angle and make it easier to enter and exit the vehicle, every BraunAbility® Power Fold-Out, Dodge Caravan handicap van features an automatic “kneeling” system. When deploying the ramp, the computer activates an actuator mounted on the rear passenger side of vehicle. Once engaged, the actuator works to lower the vans ramp side, thus reducing ramp angle. You can also turn off the kneeling system if desired.
During the conversion process, the floor of the BraunAbility® Power Fold-Out, Dodge Caravan wheelchair van is lowered 10 inches. The lowering takes place from the firewall of the vehicle (just behind the engine), to the rear axle. Lowering the floor does two things. First, it allows for a taller door-entry of 52.5 inches to allow for seated wheelchair user. Second, it provides a wheelchair user a more natural direct line-of-sight while either driving or riding as a passenger. (For a taller door opening height, see XT model)
The BraunAbility® Power Fold-Out, Dodge Caravan wheelchair accessible van has front seats that are easily removed. Removing these seats allows the wheelchair user to either drive from his/her chair or ride as a passenger up-front. The seats are easily unlocked at the base and rolled away for easy storage, and can be reinstalled anytime.
