When we think of transportation designed for the physically challenged, a picture of a Dodge Caravan converted to be wheelchair accessible pops in our heads. But your average Mr. Money Bags doesn't find himself scoping out Caravans when it comes time to replace his chauffer-driven Rolls, so why should those who roll in a wheelchair have to? It's an interesting question that Dignity Transportation felt compelled to answer with its Dignity Star wheelchair-accessible limo, believed to be the first of its kind in North America. Based on a 2006 Dodge High Roof Sprinter 2500, the Dignity Star's cargo hold has been converted into a limo with all the opulent trimmings one would expect in any stretch, including 15- and 20-inch LCD TVs, a DVD/CD player, five-speaker sound system with wireless headphones, and full dark window tint. There's also a curved leather couch inside that seats six and enough room for two wheelchairs to come aboard via the rear-mounted lift. You know what that means? No more cruisin' to the country club in a Caravan.

      Whether confined to a wheelchair or not, I'd rather ride in a Dodge Caravan than in something that looks like a UPS truck!

      You've got to be rich to afford stuff these days in this category. The Scion xB Rampvan conversion's MSRP is about $32,000.

      The Sprinter is made in Germany by Mercedes.
      To see how nice it could look try this link:

      It has a twenty valve turbo diesel. It gets up to 31 mpg on the highway.

      looks like a cheap conversion to me. That Toyota van concept they posted a while ago that was supposed to be the 'Maybach' has a much higher degree of luxury. This is just a Sprinter with a cheap conversion. Might as well get an ECONOLINE Conversion van.

      Theses are definitely impressive photos. My grandpa was just told he would need to be in a wheelchair. We have been out looking at wheelchair vans ( http://www.lonestarhandicapvans.com ) but we have not found anything quite like this. I think we will have to go with a cheaper option for now. This would be a great one to save up for though.

      That's a Sprinter Van, not a Caravan.
