Let's go on a nice long trip with 3 kids, hockey gear for 2, 4 bikes on
rack, refrigerated cooler plugged in, a bag of VHS movies and see who's
happier at the other end. Set, Game, Match!!! >>

I have three kids. Our family takes long road trips at least twice a
year. To date all our road trips have been in a 4kq (kids were small,
that was nearly 5 years back now) and a 5ktq. We recently bought a Volvo
850 turbo wagon (HUGE mistake BTW) that is presently our family road
tripper. I know of one occasion for sure in the 5ktq that had I been
driving a less, er, roadworthy vehicle (such as a van or SUV) I may not
be typing this right now, and/or not have as large of a family as I once
had. Land yachts have their place, I guess, but driving pleasure and
safety are not at the top of the design criteria.
