My husband and I have three kids and we're currently pregnant with TWINS. We won't be able to fit everyone in our current vehicle, so we're trying to figure out the best way to "upgrade." We've found some really good deals on used school buses (the short ones), but can't find much information about how they will work as a family vehicle. Ex. will car seats work, are they safe for infants, can you lock them up, etc. We have the big car seats that won't fit in a traditional van and don't want to put any of them in booster seats yet. We couldn't do a standard van - would have to be a three-row one.
Any advice or links would be very much appreciated. Is there something we're not considering? We're just trying to think outside of the box here.
Also, regarding gas, we don't do a lot of trips around town with the whole family, so it won't be used on a daily basis or anything close to that.
