Summit Fold-Out Ramp Wheelchair Vans

For those with disabilities, wheelchair minivans offer either a ramp or lift to get the chair into its proper place. While the lift has its fans, the ramp has the edge in popularity due to its price and convenience.

Ramps can be deployed manually or electronically from a passenger side door. They can be a fold-out or in-floor style. (In-floor ramps slide in and out from beneath the floor.)

Each has its drawbacks and advantages, so weigh the options against your situation.

Fold-out ramp

  • The installation is less extensive and therefore less expensive than the in-floor ramp.
  • It easily deploys on tall sidewalk curbs, a big plus where parking is limited.
  • Since it stows in the entryway, the ramp blocks the doorway, so it must be deployed when the door opens, unless the van has doors on both sides of the compartment.
  • Because it stows in the passenger compartment, it is less apt to corrode or freeze up in colder climates.

VMI manufactures a full line of minivans with fold-out ramp options:
