Chrysler Town & Country: Northstar Conversion


Chrysler In-Floor Ramp Vans


In order to accomplish an open interior and greater interior space, VMI engineered the first Northstar mobility van conversion almost 20 years ago. Nearly 20 years on the road and the VMI Northstar on the Chrysler Town & Country is still setting the standard for handicapped vans.


The Northstar wheelchair ramp slides out from underneath the floor of the handicapped vehicle instead of using valuable interior space. It is easy to see why the Northstar is so popular within the disabled community when the advantages are so obvious.
