Advice & Tips: I am now using a 3-wheel Pride Go-Go Elite Traveller with a large-size battery for movement within my home. For going shopping or to restaurants I use a 3 wheel Pride Sundancer (out of production) and for running my dog on the road or for travelling on rough trails I use a large, 4 wheel Pride Legend XL (out of production). To move them about I drive them in my Braun Entervan with a side ramp.
Cost: $25-49 monthly

Advice & Tips: You need to be able to stand and transfer to use one. Three wheeled ones are much more manoeverable than 4 wheeled but less stable. A power raising seat is very nice.
