Here’s the latest reader question, along with my reply!
Jack asks: We have six kids and are trying to find something useful that we can all fit into. We have considered doing a conversion on a Ford F-350 truck but would prefer something factory built. We currently have a very unreliable 2015 Mercedes Sprinter. Do you have any advice?
My reply: My immediate go-to thought is a Suburban or GMC Yukon equivalent. These have the room you need, both for six kids and for cargo. A Ford Expedition would also get the job done – and all of them would be less cumbersome to deal with than an F350 as well as less expensive than a conversion.
I’ve also got a wild-card suggestion for you:
A Ford Transit Connect or Dodge Ram ProMaster van. These can be bought in a variety of configurations and are designed to be custom fitted-out to suit; they’re smaller and easier to deal with than a Suburban or similar, too. Might be worth taking a look!
