    Hi, everybody!

    This summer, me and my family (4 persons) + our friends (3 persons) are going to Florida for a roadtrip. We want to rent a car (van, suv, whatever - as long as it works! :) )

    I was thinking maybe one of those big Fords? – The 'Expedition'?

    So it has to fit 7 persons, 4 medium-big sized luggage, and still be comfortable (nobody wants to sit 'squished' for a very long period of time...)

    What's your recommendations? :)

    7 people?
    gas $$ will be crazy
    but a 12 person van would be best
    that will give you room to spread out
    & room for cargo

    Expedition's and the like aren't really that _big_ in the way you want it to be
    also- they eat up lots more gas - i would think (opinion there)

    12 person van - usually pretty cheap to rent (compared)
    and easy to manuever
    also- large enough for folks to spread out
    people can take turns napping, driving, & goofin around
    also has the room for the cargo

    I second the above recomendation. Unless you can steal a short-bus a la Road Trip. Otherwise 7 people plus cargo will fit a lot easier in a 12 person van than in a 7-person Expedition. And other drivers won't automatically assume you're a jerk.
