Anyone drive a minibus? We are outgrowing our van!

We currently drive a 15 passenger van. We have always taken out the back seat. So really we seat 12. We use the extra cargo room for strollers, and DS1's wheelchair.

Well, not only does our van have 250k on it, but with the addition to DS1 getting a power chair, we have officially outgrown the van. So it looks like with our need to seat 9 people comfortably, and be able to have a wheelchair lift, and we hope to have more children, we need to look into minibuses.

So I have some questions. Like, do you like yours? What is the gas mileage like? Is it difficult to drive, and park?

Thanks mamas!!

That is what we will be getting next also. We do not need the lift, just more room.

Not there (yet!) but good luck with that! We just upgraded to a 12 passenger, and hope it lasts for a long time!

We're kind of looking around at retired shuttle buses.

They're not cool, but they sometimes have better seating than the regular vans. We found one before really shopping that was 12 passenger with all bucket-type seats in an aisle configuration with 1 seat on one side and two on the other. Lots of them also have wheelchair lifts.
