OK I've read the last 15+ pages of this thread and I don't think my particular question has been asked, so here goes:
Are there any minivans that can fit one modern pin AND comfortably seat four people??!
Looking to pick up our R&M from Spooky in a couple months. Thought it would be a fun road trip with some family stops along the way, after this past year of quarantine.
But it seems most if not all modern minivans do not have enough length fit a pin "lengthwise" behind the second row seats. Nor enough room between wheelwells / interior panels to turn a pin across the back. OR the right split/fold seat ratios to fold half the 2r / 3r seats to hold a pin, yet still seat a person comfortably next to it. I suppose we could slide & turn a pin into the middle seat row, then use the back row seating, but obviously that is less than "ideal" for a 600+ mile trip.
(Bad enough that all the extra BS in modern vans seems to have made them less useful as haulers, but now you apparently can't even fit pins through the sliding doors either?!?! Sigh... I miss my old Aerostar).
I'm getting the sense we must be the only family dumb enough to do this, hence why nobody has brought it up before
