We have a 96 Cherokee and an 01 Yukon XL 2500. The Jeep is great for trips of a couple hours but we have 3 kids under 5 so for the longer stuff we take the Yukon with our 17' TT.

1978 GMC Jimmy, 400, th350, np203 with part time conversion, pop up camper, mountain exploration rig.
2001 Yukon XL 2500, 6.0, family hauler and tow machine.
I voted minivan because I've actually taken it on the closest thing that could be called an "overland" trip - lots of highway with some sketchy forest service roads.
But I've grown up with minivans since I was a young lad, and I REALLY appreciate the huge interior volume, and now that I am the one paying for the gas, I don't mind how economical it is either.
My wife and I just have one child right now, but working on no. 2 and maybe no. 3 n the future. For 2 kids, either of my XJ's (one lifted on 33's, the other stock) will be the preferred option if we go off-highway. My wife is what I would consider overly cautious with our son right now, so the off-highway trips will likely be kept to a minimum for a few years still...
I wish I could remember where I left my keys...
Let me show you the rest. And-and try to see past what she is and onto what she can be.
... What's that, sir?
Freedom is what.
... I meant, what's *that*?
Oh, yeah, just step around that. I think something must have been living in here.
Here is a clip that includes the lines we were quoting:

Aside, do you watch Castle? In a Halloween episode, Nathan's character got into his Malcom Reynolds getup. They asked him what he was supposed to be, and he said, "I'm a space cowboy." There were Captain Stretchypants references, and his daughter told him to let it go, that happened years ago and it's time to move on.
