Our nearby Y has several 15-passenger vans for hauling kids, one of which is this extra-long wheelbase (155″) Chevy along with several Econolines. Obviously, the Chevy came late to the 15 passenger market, and took advantage of that to make theirs with a longer wheelbase instead of extending the rear section like Dodge and Ford did, and which were implicated in lots of roll-over incidents. It made me wonder how it stacked up against the triple-axle van we saw the other day. I think I got their scales about right, and the triple still has it topped, but with a lot more work though.
