If I didn't need any of the mechanical operational in winter like the toilet or sinks could I drive this in the winter (Chicago) for taking my son to the hospitals and occasional outings? Also can you swivel the front passenger seat towards the rear and be belted in during driving or do you need to be front facing? Thanks in advance!
Hi. Interesting dilemma. I've been in a chair [C6 quadriplegia] since 1987. I don't require suctioning but need lifts or ramps for all my vehicles. In the past couple of years I've been the "search" manager for an RV dealership and a dealer of accessible vehicles.
A small class B RV with generator is a good idea - just so expensive.
The option of a conversion van that AX brought up might be better. My full size Ford E150 has an inverter so you could plug in the suction machine [or my CPAP]. Adrian
