If you are not "anti-van" like my wife a 1ton van would do the job and have maybe a little room to spare. As far as the excursions and suburbans which I happen to like a lot, I can't see tying up a ton of money or paying a premium for a rare highly sought after tow vehical. I would consider a crew cab pickup if hauling more than 5 people is not a high priority.
