The VMI Northstar Access360, Dodge Caravan handicap accessible wheelchair van utilizes a full-power, in-floor ramp design to create an open, unobstructed interior space for the wheelchair user and his/her passengers and can comfortably seat up to 5+1.
The Northstar is engineered with 1.5-inch higher ground clearance than its competitors to reduce scraping, and has advanced noise-reducing technology to create a quieter and more comfortable ride.
The VMI Northstar Access360, Dodge Caravan wheelchair van conversion features a patented, ultra-low, in-floor power ramp system that allows for safe entry and exit. The ramp conveniently stows and deploys from underneath the floor, creating additional interior space and maneuverability for the wheelchair user and his/her passengers. The ramp is made from a high strength aluminum alloy that can support loads up to 1000 lbs. The ramp utilizes a SURE DEPLOY™ backup system to ensure the ramp will stow and deploy, even during an electrical failure.
The obstacle-free front seats allow for easy removal and installation and can be used to create multiple seating arrangements for the wheelchair user and passengers. The space is even large enough to accommodate two wheelchairs side-by-side if needed.
All VMI Northstar Access360, Dodge Caravan handicap wheelchair vans have floors built with new galvaneal steel and they are E-coated for optimal rust and corrosion prevention.
The floor from just behind the firewall to the third- row seat in the VMI Northstar Access360, Dodge Caravan handicap accessible wheelchair van is dropped 11 inches to provide the needed headroom for the wheelchair user throughout the vehicle cabin. This lowering of the floor creates the much needed interior height and door opening of 55 inches, making the Northstar handicap van a suitable choice for even the tallest seated wheelchair users.
