For almost nine months now, we have been aware that our 7 passenger Toyota Sienna was soon to be too small for our family. For a few months we’ve been looking for a van that would fit our family, as well as let Auntie Liz have a seat. We also realize that eventually the kids will actually get bigger.
It was surprising how hard it was to find used vans that fit this description. Turns out they seem to be about as rare as families with more than 5 kids. But I managed to find one about 3,000 feet from the border. It’s an ’05 12-passenger Chevy Express. It’s well used, but I hope that it will become just as well used in the years to come.
