This Honda Odyssey is a possibility for Dave to consider.
Recently we went to Columbus Mobility Specialist to check out some of their vans and get some more information about options for Dave. When you are shopping for a handicap van you need to decide on a make and model of van and then what adaptations you want to have made on the van. We have spent hours and hours looking online but it was time to look in person. There is a lot to learn and we so appreciate the journey we are on. My Dad went along with us to help us with the mechanics end and we felt like it was time for us to start getting our hands on the product to see what feels right to us. Here is one we looked at.
The salesman showing us a handicap accessible van.
This model seemed to be higher off the ground for a handicap minivan than the others we have looked at. There was plenty of room to enter with the wheelchair and turn around which was very nice. There was no carpet on the floor but had the rubberized flooring instead. It also had key fob entry and a bench back seat.
Dave and Dad pondering this possibility.
This was a good stop on our journey and we look forward to the next one as we search for Daves handicap van. Our goal of $65000 was confirmed again at this dealership. We are currently at $5780. Many thanks to our family and friend for helping to grow our Help Hope Live Fund to help us purchase that new van soon!
