    Bigger Van

    We currently drive a 2008 Sienna, but we are needing a vehicle for 9. In a perfect world, we'd buy a Nissan NV, but unless we find a killer deal, that's not in the budget.

    What are our options?

    Our children's stats are (mostly going off memory for height):
    DS1~8 yrs, 50", 51 lb. in an Affix NBB (seated height, I measured at 17", (I had him sit in a Defender and his shoulders are right about at the top slot)
    DS2~7 yrs, 46ish", 43 lbs in an Affix HBB
    DS3~5 yrs, 43ish", 43 lbs in a Britax Frontier
    DD1~4 yrs, a few inches shorter than DS3, 26 lbs (yes, she's very petite) just turned FFing in a Radian RXT (would definitely consider RFing again, though)
    DD2~2 yrs, 32 1/2", 20 lbs RFing in a Radian RXT
    DD3~6 mos, don't know height, 14.5 lbs, RFing in a Graco4Ever
    Baby8~Due May 6th, we will probably use the Light N Comfy Luxe for the first couple of weeks
