Wheelchair Lift and Scooter Lift Guide for Vans and RVs

Many factors will influence your decision when it comes to selecting a wheelchair lift or scooter lift that best fits your needs and budget. This guide will help you understand those factors.

Your starting point should be an assessment of the physical capability of the wheelchair or scooter user – both now and in the future. The reason for considering future needs is that the physical capabilities of the wheelchair or scooter user sometimes deteriorate over time. Planning for the future can sometimes save tremendous amounts of time and money.

If the physical capabilities of the wheelchair or scooter user require the user to remain seated in the wheelchair or scooter when they enter or exit a vehicle, then a platform wheelchair lift would be a good choice. Another alternative might be a wheelchair-accessible vehicle.

BraunAbility offers a variety of platform lifts to address different wheelchair and scooter user needs. Nearly all of these wheelchair and scooter lifts are intended for larger vehicles such as a full-sized van or RV. The following sections provide a summary of each model. To learn more about a particular lift, click the 'More Information' button.

Your local BraunAbility dealer can provide a free, no-obligation mobility consultation to help you determine which wheelchair or scooter lift is right for you. Simply click the red button to schedule your consultation.

Under Vehicle Lift (UVL) Wheelchair Lift

Under Vehicle Wheelchair Lift

The UVL, or Under Vehicle Lift®, is the wheel chair lift for those who demand the best of everything. With these wheel chairlifts mounted underneath the vehicle, they remain out of sight and out of your way until needed. That means easy access for ambulatory passengers and cargo, a clear side view for the driver while traveling and maximum interior space for passengers – something your friends and family will appreciate on every trip.
