Caddy with disability conversion

Post by Alextreadwell » Thu Jul 22, 2021 11:10 am

Hi I’m looking at buying my first caddy and I have seen several wheelchair conversations near me, is it possible to put a 3rd row of seats in these?

Don't quote me on this but the conversions I have seen cut the rear floor out to lower it meaning the factory 3rd row couldn't be refitted. Maybe some engineering firm could fit generic rear 3rd row with certs for insurance etc.

@Alextreadwell. It all depends on the conversion, all WAV conversions are not equal. The one I've got (from alfredbekker.com) retains the two side brackets for the 3rd row of seats. Not all conversions do.

You might have to fit the extra seat belts as well.

The Versa conversions retain the outer fixings too.

@Shoulders. Yes, a top quality job.
It is the second WAV I've owned (actually for wheelchair use) and having owned and used one previously, I definitely knew what I was looking for this time, and I'm very pleased with it.
