passenger van safety

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 [...]

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 [...]

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.

1. More Transportation Options

Using a full-sized wheelchair van means you can get more people in it, it’s as simple as that. Most full-sized wheelchair vans can accommodate three passengers in the rear, a wheelchair [...]

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.

More Convenient for Storage and Clearance

If you plan to [...]

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.

Passenger Weight

Because passenger vans are designed to hold several passengers [...]

A wheelchair accessible van can bring significant convenience to your life, but there’s a lot to consider when purchasing the right mobility van to meet your needs. From brand-new wheelchair accessible vans to more affordable used models, there’s likely a van that’s perfect for you on our lot, and we want to help you find it!

Used vs. New Wheelchair Accessible Vans

Perhaps the most important point to consider is whether you should buy a new or used wheelchair accessible van. There are benefits to both, but the one you choose depends on several factors, like your budget, your credit, and the features you need in your van.

Mileage and Reliability

Used vans will have higher mileage on them than others, which could be a drawback if its previous owners didn’t keep up with routine maintenance and important repairs. However, a used vehicle with more miles doesn’t automatically equate to broken down and worn out. [...]

Choosing the right conversion van is an important decision since these vehicles can be a sizable investment. You do not want to spend tens of thousands on a van only to realize you should have opted for different features or a different configuration. To help ensure you choose the best conversion van for you, make sure you keep the following factors in mind.

Why Buy a Conversion Van?

High Interior Height

RAM conversion vans have an incredibly high interior height of 6’4” which is the best interior height you will find in a conversion van.

new conversion vans

If you are in the market for a new conversion van, then you will likely want to know how much you should plan on paying for the vehicle. In addition to the sticker price of the vehicle, there are some other fees that you will need to keep in mind. Take a look at all of the factors that go into pricing a conversion van so you can save up accordingly.

Taxes

As with any other purchase that you make, you will have to pay tax on your conversion van. In Ohio, the state itself collects a tax of 5.75% on any vehicle bought. Certain counties charge an additional 2% in taxes. Keep these figures in mind because while the percentage is fairly small, it can add up to a few hundred dollars depending on the price of your conversion van.

Keep in mind, however, that these taxes are not applied to any discounts you [...]

2019 new conversion vansAs you look at the new conversion vans that are available in 2019, you will notice plenty of familiar conversions and some notable updates. Between the range of van makes and the conversion van companies, there is something for everyone, regardless of your needs.

New Conversion Van Makes RAM

One of the most popular vans for conversions is the RAM ProMaster, which serves as the base of many conversion vans across the country. The RAM ProMaster has class-exclusive front-wheel drive for responsive handling, vertical walls that are nearly 90 degrees, and a best-in-class standard cargo height of 65.4 inches, more than enough room. There are also two exterior heights, four lengths, and three wheelbases available for the RAM ProMaster.

GMC

Another incredibly popular choice for a conversion van is the GMC Savanna, which was created to transport [...]

ram tailgate van

When you think of tailgating, do not forget to consider the RAM conversion van. While most people do not picture a van for tailgating, the RAM conversion van actually checks off all the boxes of what you want for this type of vehicle and even throws in some bonus features.

Rear Doors Swing Fully Open

One of the great things about the RAM conversion van is that the rear doors swing open completely. This means that you can easily access the interior while tailgating, eliminating the need to waste time unloading all your gear from the vehicle. Or just take advantage of the widely opening rear doors to easily get your gear like a cooler, chairs, or even grill out of the van, so you can start tailgating without struggling to remove items from the car.

The RAM conversion van also comes with a TV, so you do not have [...]

new 2019 ram conversion van

When you visit Paul Sherry Conversion Vans to look at the new 2019 RAM conversion vans, you will notice some updates to the latest version. Since our new conversion vans are based on the RAM, the changes to the regular vans translate into some exciting upgrades for all conversion vans built on that particular base. Discover some of the upgrades you will notice with the 2019 RAM conversion vans compared to the previous model years.

Updated Exterior

If you happen to spot a 2019 RAM conversion van next to the previous model year, you will instantly notice a few exterior upgrades. The most obvious changes are in the front fascia, which will require a closer look. Of the fascia updates, the most notable is the integration of the “RAM” grille theme that was previously just found on the line of pickup trucks. The RAM ProMaster that is the basis for 2019 conversions also has new [...]

new conversion van

There are many reasons to own a standard van, but the new Ram conversion vans really stand out in their class. Out of the many promising features to offer drivers and passengers, here are a few of the most noteworthy.

Top-Notch Turning Diameter

By far one of the best features in the new RAM conversion vans is its highly agile turning radius. Drivers love that they only need 36 feet to get this van turned around. This makes it much easier to get in and out of tight spots in the city. The ProMaster turns the cliché that vans are hard to park upside down with its maneuverability.

More Room

Drivers and passengers can rest assured that they will ride in comfort with all the space the RAM conversion van has to offer. It ranks best-in-class with the High Roof models providing an impressive 76 inches of interior room. Even the standard version offers an [...]

2019 new conversion vans

Those who plan on getting a 2019 conversion van will notice some changes from conversion vans based on earlier model years thanks to updates to the 2019 RAM ProMaster that these vans are based on.

More Models

One of the biggest changes for the 2019 RAM ProMaster is the fact that there are more models available than before. In the past, there was just a single ProMaster van along with the ProMaster City. Now, however, you can get one of three new models. These include a ProMaster 2500 Cargo Van featuring a low roof plus a ProMaster 3500 Cargo Van with a high or a low roof. All three of those new configurations have 136-inch wheelbases. Time will tell if these new ProMaster 2500 and 3500 Cargo Vans are also used for conversions or if the other RAM ProMaster will remain the go-to option.

new conversion vans

When you are looking for your next conversion van, the van that it is based on is just as important as the conversions you choose. Both RAM and GMC offer great starting points for a range of conversions, from shuttles to mobility vans to limos and more, but each has its own strong suits. Take a closer look at how the new RAM conversion vans compare to the new GMC conversion vans so you can better choose which one to select for your needs.

RAM Van Advantages

You may have a slightly easier time finding RAM conversion vans than GMC ones, at least in the form of new models, because these autos convert much easier to a wide range of applications. RAM vans are commonly turned into mobility vans, limo vans, shuttles, and more. This easier conversion comes from the RAM van’s comparatively larger doors and lower height for stepping in than the GMC van. [...]

used conversion vans

If you have a large family, you know you need the right type of transportation. You need something roomy enough to drive your entire crew around, and a used conversion van is the perfect option. Check out some reasons why you should drive off the lot in a used conversion van today.

The Comfortable Choice

SUVs might be roomy, but they aren’t nearly as spacious as conversion vans are. Let’s start at the front. The pilot seating in the front is spacious and comfortable, giving each person his or her own space. You can stretch out and relax during those long road trips.

When it comes to the back, your passengers will have so much room they won’t know what to do with themselves. These vans have seating for seven or more in the back, so you can sit brothers and sisters away from each other to avoid fights. You can even bring the entire [...]

new mobility vans

As you explore the new mobility vans available, you will notice plenty of exciting new lift options, giving you the freedom you need to move around and get in and out of the van with ease.

Revability Lift

One of the most popular options is the Revability conversion of the Chrysler Pacifica, which features the option of a rear or side-mounted commercial platform lift that has a 1,000-pound capacity. This model also offers the option of a rear ramp with a 1,000-pound capacity that is 42 inches wide.

Ricon Clearway Lift

Another new mobility van lift choice for the ProMaster is the Ricon Clearway with its unique, fully-automatic split platform that folds up to get out of the way when you press a button. The system [...]

Essentially, it lets the upfits be applied in a flusher way, enhancing the quality and ease of these upfits.

It helps that the step-in height from the floor to ground is only 21 inches, as this means that the lift doesn’t have to move the wheelchair as far.

How It Began

The Waldoch van company began in Forest Lake, Minnesota, in 1974. Donald Waldoch was proud of his woodworking skills. One day, someone asked him to create custom-built cabinets for the interior of a van. His project was a success, and word soon spread. Soon Waldoch hired an employee, and they did every aspect of the conversion projects themselves. Waldoch [...]

Conversion vans and larger vans in general seem to be less popular today than they have been in the past. This change has slowly taken place as minivans became more popular, but people across the country are missing out. Traditional vans are incredibly spacious and offer extra passenger space, making them great for wheelchair van applications, large families, businesses, sports teams, schools, and more. They also offer plenty of advanced technologies so you won’t feel as if you are missing out. When you are looking to buy your next van, you will find plenty of great choices. Search for the following qualities to help narrow down your selection.

Interior Space

Perhaps the most important part of a van is its interior space; after all, this is why most people choose a van over an alternative, like a minivan or SUV. Figure out how many seats you need in your van; you can easily find models [...]

Going camping in a conversion van is one of the best ways to take advantage of your vehicle’s interior space. You can bring along a tent and set it up outside, using the interior of your van to bring people and camping supplies. Or you can remove some of the seats from inside your van and turn it into your tent, perfect for one or two people. With some clever accessories, like tents that attach to the vehicle, you can even combine both options. To make the most of your van camping, you need to pack it correctly, including bringing along the proper supplies and making sure they are accessible.

Keep the Essentials on Hand

Whether you are camping inside the van or just using it for storage, you need to make sure you have all the essential items with you. This should include things like toilet paper, a lighter and candles, a sleeping bag [...]

No matter the type of youth sports that you coach, you will need a vehicle that can take the whole team from place to place in comfort. While you could ask a few parents with minivans on the team to help out on a regular basis, this is putting a great deal of pressure on them. You will find it much easier to just buy a conversion van for your team and never have to worry about a parent having to cancel last minute.

Excellent Rear Storage

When you think about a van for youth sports, you will need something that can fit all of the gear along with the team. Some vans only let you maximize passenger room but require some odd maneuvering to fit things like hockey sticks or baseball bats inside. This isn’t an issue with a Sherry van with its incredible cargo area. Since the interior height is 6 feet 4 inches, [...]

While most people on the road will stick to cars, trucks, or SUVs, some will find that a luxury van from Paul Sherry is the ideal option. These vans fit seven or nine passengers with ease and are spacious with premium appointments. They let everyone ride in comfort and give you unlimited options for uses. While you could always use your luxury van for a shared taxi service, there are plenty of other uses, as well.

Family Vehicle

If you have a larger family, then a Sherry luxury van will be the ideal choice. Since they are ready for nine passengers, you don’t have to worry about having room for everyone when you go to the store, movies, or on another outing. They will always have room for you, your spouse, and several kids, plus their friends.

Business, School, or Hotel Shuttle

Those who run a hotel, business, or school may find a luxury van [...]

No matter where you plan to drive your conversion van, you want to make sure that you are ready for your road trip. Some things to take with may seem obvious, like snacks, but people are likely to forget about other important items to bring. Although there are dozens of things you should check off your list before hitting the road on your next trip, make sure to at least have the following four items, as they are the most important.

Maps

It should be a given that when you go on a road trip you need to have a map of some sort with you, but in this day and age, the definition of a map can vary. You may feel fine using the map application on your smartphone, but you don’t want to rely on just that. If you feel comfortable navigating with your smartphone or GPS unit, that is fine, but don’t [...]

Vans aren’t known for getting the best fuel efficiency, but you can easily change this. By taking care of your vehicle and driving carefully, it is possible to make your van more efficient. Of course, you will want to choose an efficient model over those that consume more fuel, but following these steps can boost how far you go on each tank of gas.

Don’t Drive Aggressively

Perhaps one of the easiest ways to help your Sherry Van be more fuel efficient is to pay attention to your driving habits and avoid aggressive driving. In fact, starting suddenly and hard braking may lead to consuming up to 40 percent more fuel. Instead, accelerate smoothly and slowly before getting into your high gear quickly.

Keep a Steady Speed

Cruise control can be your best friend when it comes to fuel economy. Driving at a steady speed is one of the top methods of going further on [...]

Luckily, there are dozens, if not hundreds, of games you can play with your children during a road trip so they don’t get bored. Factor in other entertainment, like books, books on tape, travel versions of games with magnetic pieces, and portable DVD players, and you don’t have to worry about your children asking if you’re there yet. To save you some time, here are the best family road trip games and everything you need to prepare to play them.
