I have been researching large capacity vans. They are hard to find and hard to imagine since none of the car dealerships actually have them. Usually they are nothing more than a picture.
So often on the internet, I think I find one, only to be told "that only comes in an 8 passenger".
We have a Yukon XL now and we love it but very soon it is going to get too crowded in there and everyone needs a seatbelt!
Whenever we see a 12 to 15 passenger van parked or on the road I would take a good long look at it- trying to figure out if it would work for us, who makes them, what's inside of them and could I actually drive one of those things! If you have seen me peering in the window of one of these beasts do not worry, I am only doing research (and maybe invading someones privacy).
Yesterday we were able to actually see a 12 passenger van and ride in it!! There was lots of room for all our kiddos, it was so nice!!
I will miss my Yukon XL, it is so wonderful in the winter weather. I can go through any amount of snow in that thing! Weather would never stop us! Soon that will not be the case. Our new van only has rear wheel drive so any snow and ice and the kiddos and I will be staying home!
Our big kids are so funny! They were horrified that their Momma would be driving "the beast"! I told them it's okay I have no chance of being even remotely "cool" and now some of them can ride with us! They declined the invite!!
We decided to go with the 12 pass. instead of the 15 pass. It will still fit in our garage, in parking places and can still go through the car wash. I hope we won't regret going with the smaller version. We will take a few road trips but most of our driving will be around here!
We probably won't get it for a couple months. We excited for it to arrive!
(Let me see... let's do the math... there's still 4 extra seats...Hmmmm)
