So after 4 different Christmas' all in one trip you can imagine that we went home with a lot more than we came with. After this trip we did determine that we would need a van with the next child. This CVR would not hold anything else. We do travel with our dogs in a kennel so in all fairness that does take up about 1/2 of the very back. We didn't have room for the car, but we did manage to save room for Lanie (barely)!!!
