Custom striping


When new, industry leader, Braun, converted this one. Has a package that is often ordered by agencies, governments, businesses, etc. The purpose of this conversion is that it is hassle-free, super easy care, ultra reliable. This special conversion includes these primary components::

* Deeply lowered floor in middle and forward areas.

* Special flooring is a heavy-duty rubber/vinyl/coated material. Super tough and easy to clean

* Both front seats assemblies are removable, which allows parking wheelchair in either front location.

* Very sturdy, easy to use, leverage-assisted, side entry ramp. This is manually operated, which means there is nearly zero chance of breakdown of the ramp, no electronics to fail, essentially no servicing or repairs ever to be needed. It is easy to operate, even with no power assist. Yes, even a small grade-school-age child would be capable of operating it

* Deeply lowered floor creates super entry clearance and interior headroom (contributing to this fact is that these Venture vans have a bit more headroom than the super common Dodge Caravans)

History of Ownership

Has had only one owner since new


This vehicle is 'CERTIFIED': There are a combined 76 mechanical and cosmetic aspects  included in the Wheelchair Van Oasis "Certification" process.   A foundational step of the rejuvenation process is when each vehicle receives an extensive inspection by an objective, independent  third- party service and repair facility.  Suggested service, repairs and improvements are then performed by various professional specialists.   The  result is your assurance  that each of the 76 aspects  meets  or exceeds the condition level of good, or satisfactory.

For details regarding list of 76 cosmetic and mechanical aspects, pleaseclick here.

Each van does of course have various elements which exceed the promised level of good or satisfactory, which the "Certified" program assures.  Some are brand new improvements performed during rejuvenation.  And others are obvious service or repairs performed recently, prior to my ownership.  As for those, I only list here those positives which are certain, based on my either having a receipt, and/or due to being obvious to the inspecting-mechanic.  I refer to these as  "NEW OR RECENTLY SERVICED ASPECTS".  

Here are the new and recent items:

New: Here is a partial list, more to come: new front struts; new rear air shocks; alignment; lube/oil/filter; more to comeā€¦

Approximate retail value/cost of above-listed items:$1,900

You Might Like To Know...

* Each of my vans has a superb paint sealant as the final step of the extreme detail. If you were to have a professional apply a treatment the cost would be several hundred dollars.
* This van is a bit larger inside than the Dodge/Chrysler minivans, which are by far the most common. It has a bit better dimensions in most or all areas and places.

Summary of this Gem

I am happy to be able to offer this relatively modern-era wheelchair van, at a price around $20,000. This surely is in a wonderful sweet-spot, because for this price range it is a super balance of year and features and has decent miles. For only a few thousand more than the vans I usually have that are several years older, you can have this more modern, more advanced van.
