To van or not to van

The adjuster called today and my poor Altima is totalled.

Now we need a new one, so we were thinking of getting a mini-van. There are of course a great many Vans of all styles and sizes with the comfort options that we prefer to have. There are certain things that I absolutely must have when getting a car.

But, it's a bloody mini-van. Granted the Awesome Wife has offered to drive the mini-road-conqueror, but I don't feel right about it. We already have an SUV. It's the smaller size one and the trunk, sometimes, doesn't hold all we need. We have two kids, a stroller at all times (for next year or two), occasional bike and a probable medium-to-large dog in the future. Maybe we can go for another SUV, an Enclave or something along those lines. That can be a permament family car.

So the question that we are trying to solve right now, is whether or not we need a mini-Van.

You did not explain to the readers what happened with Altima and why adjuster called you.
