A conversion van was once one of the most popular types of vehicles for travel enthusiasts who longed for adventures with their families or friends. In more recent years, we hear more about RVs and even large SUVs taking over the job. Are conversion vans still made? If so, what do they offer to modern drivers?
Are Conversion Vans Still Being Produced?
Yes, new conversion vans are still being produced and manufactured. You might just not hear about them as much because they aren’t as widely used as they once were. However, today’s conversion vans are still built for convenience and comfort, just like they always have been.

If you’ve never bought a conversion van before, you may not realize how much is involved with a new conversion van purchase. Several considerations should go into your purchase from warranties to protect your van to money-saving incentives to unique features that boost safety, convenience, and comfort.
New Conversion Van Buying Tips
We want your conversion van buying experience to go as smoothly as possible. Here are a few tips to help you decide what conversion van is right for you:
Look for Manufacturer Incentives and Discounts
Most auto manufacturers put out discounts and incentives regularly to entice people to keep buying their vehicles. New conversion vans are no different. RAM, for instance, releases occasional 0% financing offers, cash-off deals, and financing and leasing incentives that we can then pass onto our customers.
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.
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.

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. Depending on the van you select, you can choose from one of several different lifts, each with its own advantages and disadvantages and situations that it is designed for.
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 [...]
Out of the various new conversion vans on the market, the RAM ProMaster stands out from the crowd with a range of class-exclusive and best-in-class features. Between all of these amenities, it is no wonder that so many drivers choose a RAM ProMaster over similar new conversion vans. Whether you want a model with front-wheel drive, appreciate the low load height, or just love the seemingly limitless options, the ProMaster can be the right van for you.
Best-in-Class Turning Diameter
One of the first best-in-class features you will notice on the RAM ProMaster is its turning radius. Since you only need 36 feet to turn this van around, you can easily maneuver it around the city and get in and out of that tight spot. While vans are known for being challenging to park or complete tight turns, the ProMaster is the exception to that rule.

Fitting a Vehicle to a Person with Mobility Problems
Those of us who have family members or friends with mobility problems understand the difficulties of transportation for them. Travel is not just an issue of vehicle, but also of access to the vehicle by the wheelchair-bound passenger or driver. In attempts to make a wheelchair van compatible and accessible, the vehicle may be less convenient for others, even limiting how a person enters the vehicle or is seated in the vehicle.
Paul Sherry’s Answer—The RAM ProMaster Conversion Van
The RAM ProMaster begins life as a chassis with safety and security options like advanced front airbags (supplemented by seat-mounted side airbags and side curtain front airbags), electronic roll mitigation, electronic stability control, and more… The point is, this front-wheel-drive van is fully outfitted in both low roof and high roof designs, and can safely carry a payload of 4,440 pounds.

The Fourth of July is a national holiday that often involves roasting hot dogs on the grill and lighting a few fireworks once the sun goes down.

Consider a New Conversion Van to replace your old, musty, historical, paint splattered and Woodstock weary van. You may want to grab your cane, walker, oxygen tank or whatever assistance you require in this modern age and come on over to Paul Sherry Vans to check out their new ProMaster Conversion Van; but hang on to your hat and your pacemaker because they sure don’t make ’em like they used to. And that, my friends, is a good thing!
Fortunately, with the maturity rate of the young and rebellious, came changes to the conversion van industry as the hippies began to marry and raise families. Along with modern home conveniences, transportation vehicles became demanding of captain’s chair seats and custom interior lighting, thereby making the modern van a vehicle with a multitude of luxurious options.
