Great for large family and for trips to the dump

We've used every bit of utility this van has to offer. Normally we leave the 4th row out which leaves comfortable seating for 8 plus an enormous amount of space in the back for all the family's junk. This van easily accommodates 4x8 sheets of plywood stood on the long end with the 2 rows of seats still installed. There is nothing you can't do with this van! Except park it in a tight space. The long nose makes for a ridiculous turn radius.

Best big family van ever!

This is an awesome van for big families, more more comfortable than our Ford 12 passenger van was, this drives like a big mini-van not a cargo van like others.
