Comments Off on Tips for a More Eco-Friendly Conversion Van
Conversion vans have numerous benefits for drivers and their families. They’re roomy, comfortable, and often come packed with features to make the ride easier on everyone.
But they’re also known for not being the most eco-conscious vehicles on the road. Bigger bodies mean more gas-guzzling and a larger carbon footprint. Taking just a few small steps toward eco-friendliness, however, can set your van on the right path to becoming more fuel-efficient and better for the environment overall.
What to Look for in an Eco-Friendly Van
Choosing a van with some eco-friendly features is the best way to get a jump-start on its reduced carbon footprint. Vans today generally come with more environmentally-friendly features than they used to, but some models are more focused on being green than others.
Unfortunately, it’s rare to find a conversion van with a manual transmission, which can save fuel and give you more control over the engine. But you can [...]
Comments Off on Passenger Van Safety – Frequently Asked Questions and Recommendations
Are you considering purchasing a passenger van? These incredibly convenient vehicles offer a spacious interior for several passengers to commute at one time, making them an excellent choice for private or public transportation. However, passenger vans come with a broader range of risks than most vehicles because of their size and design. Here’s what you need to know about passenger van safety and how to keep your van operating as safely as possible for your passengers:
What dangers exist in passenger vans?
Driving any vehicle carries a safety risk, but passenger vans aren’t built the same as the average car, pickup truck, or SUV. To make room for 9, 12, or 15 passengers, these vans are long and tall, allowing passengers to enter and exit them comfortably. Because they’re top-heavy and carry multiple passengers at a time, they carry greater risks than your average vehicle, like rollovers and long brake times. Passenger vans also have [...]
Comments Off on Why Your Family Needs a Conversion Van
Having a large family does not mean that every road trip has to be a nightmare of cramped seating, crushed-in luggage, and cramped conditions.
Sure, squeezing you, the kids, and all the rest of the family into a sedan might be a nightmare, but there are other transportation options out there. A properly outfitted conversion van gives you the space you need to breathe, not to mention sit comfortably.
You can also add in a host of optional extras, everything from games consoles to iPod docks to keep the family occupied (and quiet) on the long drive to grandma’s house. So, read on to find out how a conversion van can put the comfort back into your family trips.
What Exactly Is a Conversion Van?
Before we get onto talking about their benefits, let’s define what we mean by conversion vans. A conversion van is a full-sized cargo van that has been refitted for luxury [...]
Comments Off on Top 10 Reasons for Owning a Full-Sized Wheelchair Van
Across the US, approximately 2.7 million Americans use a wheelchair on a regular basis. For many of those Americans, a full-size wheelchair van represents the most convenient way to move around without needing to pack and unpack a potentially heavy and unwieldy wheelchair.
The size of full-sized wheelchair vans is often quoted as one of the reasons people avoid them, with drivers worried about fuel economy and their ability to find parking in urban centers.
However, full-sized wheelchair vans offer so many benefits that far outweigh needing to wait a little longer to find the right parking space and, to make them clearer, we’ve made a list of them.

Comments Off on Low Top vs. High Top Conversion Vans
When you purchase a conversion van, you usually have several configuration options to choose from. One of those options is roof height, which can be low or high top. Both configurations have their benefits, but the one you choose depends on your primary purpose for your van.
Here’s what you need to know about high top and low top conversion vans before you make your choice.
Benefits of Low Top Conversion Vans Easier to Drive
The shorter profile of a low top conversion van makes it easier to drive. In most cases, low top vans are more balanced on the road to prevent top-heaviness when maneuvering turns and corners. These vans can also be easier to handle than their high top counterparts in inclement weather conditions, like wind or rain.
Comments Off on Understanding the Risks of Passenger Vans (and What to Do About Them)
There’s no doubt that 12 and 15-passenger vans offer outstanding convenience for getting large families or groups where they need to go. But with their convenience also comes safety risks due to their size and weight.
Driving a passenger van requires even more responsibility and care than driving a regular passenger vehicle because they can be more dangerous, but that doesn’t mean you need to avoid buying one. Understanding common safety issues involved with passenger vans and what you can do to ensure passenger safety are the first steps toward being a responsible owner.
Common Risks of Passenger Vans
Every vehicle comes with its share of risks as soon as you step into the driver’s seat. However, since passenger vans tend to be taller, longer, and heavier than the average vehicle, they come with a unique set of safety challenges for drivers and passengers.
Because passenger vans are designed to hold several passengers [...]

Mileage and Reliability
