    Van and conversion companies?

    Wrote awhile back we were in need of a new(at least new to us) van. Local or rather closest dealers just way to high and locally if used one come up it's gone, as expensive as dealers or junk.
    Wonder if anyone heard of or dealt with .Adaptive Mobility Systems? Their prices seems alot better than nearest dealers. Drawback of course is no local shop for repairs. Have go to nearest shop and hope they fix it, course be same spot with anything bought used from individual. Anyone bought one? Thoughts? Ideals?

    One other place that we talked with before found the above called AMS(American's Mobility Superstore)? Some of their models I think are the above plus most major brands. Anyone dealt with them?
    Thanks!

    Both Rollx and Mobility Works claim to offer used vans. Both list photos/prices online. Don't know if magazine Disabled Dealer is still around and online; they used to list vans.
    I'm not sure where all these sources find the vans they list. Wondering if there's some kind of national clearing house for adapted vans.

      Disabled Dealer is still around: http://www.disableddealer.com/

      My parents bought their first modified van through them (used, low mileage), and later sold it through them when buying a new one.

        Hi Mike the one issue with disabled dealer is you have private individuals that are selling vans that really have no idea on what the value is because most are selling because they no longer need the van yet are tied to the use of the van emotionally.

        A lot of times those vans are way over priced...

        There is a dealer here in Phoenix that has 100's of van used and in good shape. Scott is the sales man and a good guy.

        We saved $20,000 on our van plus bought an extended warranty with zero deductible for $3000 which is good for 100,000 miles or 5 years.

        They ship all over the US!

        Let me know if you need more help...

          Checked out the link you posted. Noticed some of that company's "Specials" seems to be by Adaptive Mobility Systems like the company posted in original post.
          One of the problems I saw so far is door height. I've never had minivan just fullsize with raised roof so that number looks short. Does look like many are in that height range so maybe just me.
          Anyone have problems with door heights?
          Thanks!

            What chair do you have and how tall are you?

            Never had an issue because most mini vans are 10-12" lowered at the door ramp height.

            What city are you in? Can you go to a local dealer and just roll around in the van?

            I have both x5 Frontier and Permobil F3 no problems!!

                I'm right at 54" talk in Q6 Edge.
                Still live in Oklahoma and nearest dealer is OKC, think down to 2 dealer again over there.
                Can't get over there since my van lift is toast now.
                Been using local transit, but as far as I'm aware they only go that far for doctor appointments.
                Been getting a good bit of use in the transit's minivans since their big van broke down awhile back. They use BraunAbility with manual ramp. Think door height on their's is higher than 54" by couple inches.
                Mama does the driving since my last fall and wants minivan instead replacing lift in my Sprinter.
                Thanks

                      +1 on Arizona Mobility. Delivered to my door in Wa. state. They work with another shop nearby in Phoenix to install hand controls before shipping it to me.

                            I just got lucky with MobilityWorks. Bought a 2006 Ford Econoline w/ Ricon lift and lowered floor with 20,000 miles for $20k. Price included delivery from LA to United Access in Chandler, AZ where I spent about 5k getting hand controls, EZLock, etc. transferred from my old 2000 van. Full-size vehicles are getting hard to find.
