July 17, 2013 - Finally, some pictures of our new 2013 Dodge Grand Caravan.
We actually got her in April (after the 18 year old, 250,000+ mile Chevy Astro van started to strand me on the road and the problem couldn't be found). It has taken us a few months to make the Caravan the perfect Standard Schnauzer hauler. She is now equipped with heavy seat covers, dash cover, floor rugs, and a wonderful platform in the back that Roy built for all the dog gear. We even splurged and got personalized plates. Couldn't be more happy with the mpg - it said 25 on the highway but just last weekend I got 26.8 mpg and that was with the a/c running on high. The kids love it!
