I'm reaching out to my peers specifically for your help? Between these two vans I mentioned in the subject line. Why did you go with the choice you made? Cost, Dependability , Warrenty , All wheel drive , Upkeep of vehicle maintance ? Handling? More room? Also want to know are you happy with the decision you made? Would you choose differently today if you could? 

Sincerely,
      Mi

Hi Mi,
I have a 2014 Honda Odyssey with hand controls and a 10 way power swivel seat.  It has enough room for a manual chair or power chair to be safely tied down and secure.  There is not much for extra room.  I need to have my service dog Madden jump up in the back seat while I secure either chair before my transfer.  The van was also converted with a telescoping ramp and floor lowered.  I believe most VMI converted or Braun Mobility mini vans will occasionally scrape when going over speed bumps.  My minivan even scrapes leaving my driveway with the extra weight of the power chair. You may also want to post this question on the Care Cure Forum at Rutgers http://sci.rutgers.edu/forum/forum.php and get some further input or access to more SCI individuals.
If you like I can post your discussion on our Private Facebook group here at The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation and see if there are responses. You may benefit from speaking with a certified Reeve Peer Mentor.  If you would like you can request one at the following link: https://www.christopherreeve.org/get-support/get-a-peer-mentor
All The Best!!!
