Re: What would you recommend?
I'd love the pano roof, but just like my existing sunroofs, it just wouldn't get used due to roof racks full of equipment, full on sun, or tons of snow. I realize it's bolstered with braces and whatnot, but there's also something a bit odd about an aquarium sized piece of glass covering the rooftop of an SUV. YMMV.
Meanwhile, the DVD will get us to pull off the Griswold's National Park tour of the West next summer without stopping every two hours. Then there's no peripheral gear flying about, and we control the content and amount of use from the drivers seat.
Neener, neener, neener to the guys suggesting kids they've never met are whiney brats. Careful, you might unknowingly get a booger planted in your big gulp that's sitting in the cupholder.
