Re: Family of 4 and a minivan-too much space?

We waited until we had 3 kids and the youngest was nearly 2 to get a minivan. We never did, but figured we could rent one if we needed something bigger. But, we never have visitors that we drive around, so it was a non issue. We took a couple trips a year, and just packed on the roof. A $700 roof system was cheaper than a minivan . So, for us, it was a good choice to wait and hopefully this will be the only minivan we have, as the kids will be leaving the house when it dies!

But, we don't have a dog or drive other people. I think it makes a lot of sense if you're having daily problems moving the dog and a stroller around to get something that works for you and your family. I am sure if we had that situation we would have had a minivan much earlier.
