Advice & Tips: When learning how to operate this piece of equipment take your time go slow. This is a wonderful . This has made getting around my yard w/o being stuck anywhere. an absolute joy, FREEDOM to travel and go shopping. And enjoy being out of the house. 1) Turns on a dime and quick if set to maximum speed . 2) Will travel over any terrain and sand, that's hard to medium packed. 3) Will transport in a Dodge Voyager van with a portable 6 foot ramp 4) I have turned my MS and Power Chair into a teaching device. Children and Adults alike are interested in how the Permobile works and what all it can do. 5) As for a seat to sit on I HIGHLY recommend a JAY J2 seat very comfortable with hard memory foam and a Jel pad cushion this works great for keeping pressure sores away. 6) Cost 15,000.00 insurance paid it all. and the best part nothing out of pocket $ 0.00 :)
