Vehicle Description

Forest River Van

Maneuverability. Versatility. Performance.

With the commercial passenger van emerging as the fastest growing ground transportation segment, Forest River Van delivers the most versatile product in the market today. Whether you are transporting patients, hotel guests, prisoners, commuters, or catering and works crews, we have a variety of flexible floor plans and seating configurations. With similar options and capacity as a smaller shuttle bus, our van is a cost effective option when passenger capacity needs are 15 passengers or less and up to four wheelchairs. We offer wood and aluminum flooring systems that provide dozens of seating and wheelchair positions to match your customer's evolving needs and it's all backed by Forest River's dedication to quality and superior customer service.
