We have 7 kids (9 of us total) and have a 15 passenger.
Really after a mini-van, a 9 seater suburban is the only thing that will work, and it is a huge PITB with car seats.
I say stick with the mini van if it has 7 seatbelts for the kids, because climbing all over an suv is awful. Or upgrade to a 12 passenger van.
