8 passenger flat tow?

We are first time diesel pusher owners. We purchased, in march, a 2001 Fleetwood Discovery. We have made two trips so far and love it. First trip we spent 1.5 weeks near my parents and rented a vehicle to run errands, see friends etc. Second trip was to a state park on the beach and had no use for a vehicle. Future trips though we want to sight see and have fun exploring museums etcetera. We have 6 kids ages 3-17. We need an 8 passenger toad, any suggestions?
We have been looking into older 4x4 durango's but they only have 7 seatbelts. So we have looked into adding a seatbelt on the back row. But.... Would love to not have to "resort to that".

The GMC Acadia has seating for 7 or 8, depending on the seating configuration chosen. Mine has bucket seats in the 2nd row, so max seating is 7, but with a bench as the second row it goes to 8. I'm pretty sure the Buick Enclave and Chevy Traverse (sister models) have the same seating choices. All are 4-down towable with either FWD or AWD transmissions.

Chevy Suburban, Cadillac Escalade. Chrysler or Dodge minivan will work but they need a lube pump added.
