Default Travel Power Chair?

Does anyone have a travel power chair available?

My husband is to the point where he can walk, but only for short distances. We'd like to get a wheelchair that will allow him a mode of transportation for when we travel - just sightseeing, ect.

Your local ALS center or the MDA may be able to give you a loaner.

I'm hoping they'll have something. I can't believe the prices that are charged for this equipment!

Yes, the prices are crazy. My MIL just got a second wheelchair for upstairs. And it was around 3k. Nuts
