ChristusG Posted March 8, 2012 Share Posted March 8, 2012 We are thinking of thinking about a Suburban. :tongue_smilie: Right now we have a Nissan Quest mini van. It seats 7 and seems pretty roomy. We have three kids in car seats. However, here are my reasons for wanting a Suburban.... * Bigger vehicle = safer vehicle * Larger trunk space. We go to Disney several times a year, go camping and bring a BUNCH of stuff, and make other various trips sometimes. We're headed to Alabama in December and possibly to the Smoky Mountains sometime next year. And I'm an overpacker....so trunk space is good. :D We've added a child since last time we went camping. We could previously put both kids in the second row, fold down the third row, and have the entire back for trunk space. Now we must use the third row for seating. So while the trunk is deep...it's not very wide. * Better at towing our pop up camper. Our Quest can and does pull it, but it's pretty much sitting at the maximum weight limit. I'm afraid to carry bikes or anything like that to go camping because of the added weight. * The possibility of fitting all three car seats across the second row. I'm not sure that this is feasible (especially since DD4 sits in a Britax Regent, the mother of all car seats), but I can try. * Leather seats. The cloth in our van gets stained so easily. It would be nice to have leather to wipe off. Yes, I know it's hot in the summer and cold in the winter, but I think I can live with that if they are clean LOL. * A light colored exterior, such as silver. Our current van is black. I think that thing draws in heat due to the color. Pair that with the fact that the air conditioning system has never seemed to blow our very hard and you have a sauna during our Florida summers. I'm hoping that a Suburban has a more efficient A/C system that blows out harder. Does anyone have a Suburban? Hate it or love it? What are the best and worst things about it? Yes, I'd be totally scared of how large it is the first time I get behind the wheel LOL. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
