Andre Jones. It will be used as a Personal Mobility Van with rear entry lift. Will have new lift installed so weight not sure on new models. Current lift is Ricon KlearVue Commercial Model weighs in at approx. 450lbs.
Powerchairs: Two Full Rehab powerchairs, Powered seating, tilt, recline, articulating footboard. Weight per powerchair appox 550lbs each.
People: Most always 3 total weight appox 650lbs.
Various DME equipment total weight appox 200lbs.
Total weight appox: 2400lbs.
Two front seats stay: Driver and Passenger
Bare from those through back doors.
Powerchairs secured one sideways behind driver seat facing side door and other just forward of lift in back doorway facing forward.
This been same setup with last 4 vans. Got away from side entry lift placement years ago due to parking issues being blocked from loading.
Biggest problem with Transit 350 is lenght. Parking tray built when home was built 8 years ago to fit 140" Wheelbase with overall van length of 222"
Plus 69" from bumper to end of wheelchair platform when deployed for load/unload powerchairs.
For total of 291" for parking tray plus turning room for powerchairs.
Tray is not wide enough to go back to side entry lift.
"Sorry" long winded but getting out there what we looking at for parking.
BTW: Can not add length to parking tray, 6' drop in front of curb and back end of tray a steep driveway.
Rode in 2016 Transit 350 Long Passenger Model with medium roof height. Loved it! Ride smooth, good vision from windows.
