I am currently pg with #4 but car-share long trips to school with a neighbour. She has 3dc and from september two of them will be at same school as my oldest dc's. So I need a 7 seater minimum, but possibly need to give lift to another child too. So ideally need an 8 seater..... I take it this is where I need to move into the minibus realm?
At the moment I have a mulitpla, so it would suit our family to stick with what we have, but then would not be able to share the travelling to and from school each day. We live in a rural area, so no other options other than car to get to school.
So what suggestions for minibus or other, do you wonderful ladies have?
We have a LWB VW transporter, 9 seater, I love it! I have 4 dc's and pg with #5 also have younger sisters which I also take to various clubs etc so to me it is the best vehicle. We got a LWB (wasn't keen!) and now i'm glad we did as the boot space is wonderful.
We have a 9 seater tranist minibus ,it does have space for 14 seats but theback lot have been removed so we only have 9 and a huge boot space,enough so that the twins double buggy can stay upright as well as adding in shopping and whatever else. We have ds1 13yrs,ds2 11yrs,dd1 6 yrs and dts 17 mths so 2 car seats and a high back booster in too.This is ideal for us as theres no worries about what we can anc cant take on holiday with us and also on days out to the park etc we can fold the buggy and add in the older kids bikes too.
