I think it's the same at most displays unfortunately. The reason they give is that the ramp takes up more space than just steps. I have pointed out there are many companies that sell/hire out portable lifts which are compact... Problem solved!

The ramp from the van we viewed was set from the door and that was situated in the middle of the van so it didn't encroach onto the road. I suppose that if the door is situated nearer to the end of the van where the road is, it might be a problem.
