Oddly enough, I can turn my wife's Grand Caravan into a huge cargo van with only a little planning, or by juggling the kids' car seats around I can drop the seats on one side and have 60% cargo van, 40% passenger. Can't do that in a Routan.

Our first hitch was to mount a bike rack on her SUV, because I wasn't going to climb up on the roof to put a bike on. A week after putting the hitch on (before ever using the bike rack) My father called from two states away asking if I could use a couch and a couple other pieces of furniture. So I stopped at U-Haul on the way and everybody's happy.
