What is the best vehicle to take on a cross country trip for seven people?

Jump to last reply

Next summer my family and I are taking a cross country trip from Tennessee out west. We will be going up to South Dakota and staying a few nights in the Black Hills, before heading over to Yellowstone and Grand Tetons.

It will be myself, wife and two kids, ages 14 and 11. Also, we will be taking my parents and brother. So it will be five adults and two kids. My father has always wanted to travel out to Yellowstone and the Black Hills area, but has never been. I wanted to make sure he saw it while he is still in good health.

We will be renting a vehicle for the two weeks we will be traveling. I was looking at the Ford Expedition EL , and even some vans like the Dodge Grand Carivan. My concerns are: comfort and room for luggage.

Has anyone else made a similar trip with this number of people? What type of vehicle would you suggest?
