For those of us who grew up in the Eighties and Nineties, the Dodge
Caravan was literally the number one choice for suburban families with at least one kid and a dog. Even if the extra space wasn't entirely needed (a station wagon would have sufficed), a Chrysler
minivan signified that you too were as trendy as your fellow Caravan-driving neighbors. Which is to say not terribly trendy at all. These days those old Caravans (and their stablemates, the Plymouth Voyager and Chrysler Town and Country) are rare to be seen, largely replaced by crossovers and SUVs in suburban driveways.
