Re: Question about wheelchair ramp use.

I just bought my bus with a chair lift. The guy I got it from, the bus, used the lift to load his Harley in for use when they got where they were going. The center piece that was used to hold the rear wheel slid out and would be stowed inside.

Good luck with yours,

That's DarrenDriven's Bondo Condo. Last I heard he'd sold it and (he) was over in China. Don't know what happened to the bus.

Re: Question about wheelchair ramp use.

That's a great idea, but like someone mentioned earlier, the scooter might be a bit long for the ramp. But, adding the extention to it would likely solve that problem. All the lifts on the paratransit buses I've seen are usually rated 600 - 700 pounds. The biggest problem with them is keeping them working. There's lots of sensors on them and later model ones are controlled by a circuit board.

Yes, i know exactly which bus you are talking about. I too wondered what happened to it. It was the closest bus i've seen that matched mine '97 Ford Starcraft. I was in the middle of a RV conversion when i got presented with an opportunity to acquire a much newer bus i'll be bragging about here soon. I just wheeled and dealed my older bus for a beautiful 2002 Mazda Tribute 4x4. I'm hoping with little or no modification to the rig, i can tow my 4x4 rig behind my new RV conversion.

I traded an old beat up RV i've been living in for it my 2009 Ford Glaval E-450 with 163k miles on it. Basically, i'm now camping in the bus as i build it, but it's well worth it!

Dredman has the same style ramp, and extension. AT least he did on his last bus. Not sure he has installed one on his new bus yet. He isn't riding a Harley, so the dims. might be a bit different.
