The Backpacker unit holds
your scooter or power wheelchair inside your vehicle for safe keeping, and
easily mounts to the existing floor latches when the rear seat is removed, so
there are no holes to drill or modifications to your vehicle. And the battery
pack means you don't have to wire it to your car battery either. Just pop it in
and go! The fully automatic single button lift operation means there is no work
on your part...the lift moves outward, lowers to the ground, then moves up and
into the vehicle entirely on its own. And now the Backpacker Plus features
a manual override. Fits in most mini-vans. Please note that if you have one of
the newer mini-vans with the third seat that folds into the floor, the Backpacker
can still work with no drilling. Separation between existing floor
couplings can be a maximum of 45"

Hi! I was recently diagnosed with Charcot Foot Arthropathy. It's gotten so bad that my doctor has me non-weight bearing. I expect it's going to be for quite some time. If my foot continues to worsen, my doctor has told me I'll be looking at surgery--most likely limb salvage. Which is a nice way to say amputation. I'd like to keep my what's left of my foot. I am now in a wheelchair. Because I have hypermobility joint disorder, using something like a Knee Walker puts me at greater risk of injury/harm. What I'm looking for: A vehicle that I can get in and out of in my wheelchair, and drive. I do have neuropathy in both feet, but I am still able to use my right foot on pedals. Eventually, I anticipate needing hand controls but that's not an immediate need. It would be a welcome bonus though.
I'm on SSDI, have been for the last 18 years. Last year, I went through a divorce. I have recently gone back to work part-time and I love my job as a paraprofessional. I want to continue working. I want to continue being independent. Because of the Charcot, my medical expenses have been high and I have no savings or extra money to speak of.
I do have a 2007 Chrysler 300 I'm willing to use in a trade, or sell to get some cash to help pay for a new vehicle. I may have other items I can barter including a like new Trek Adult Tricycle (Blue).
I know this is a big ask. Can anyone help me out here? Thanks for reading this, and thanks in advance for anyone who can help!
