A couple of opinions regarding your questions...
1) If you know you want an '05 Uplander, then I wouldn't wait... Some makes, once they put buying incentives on a car, leave them there until the car is sold... But, the domestic makes seem to be schizophrenic about things like this, and many times a vehicle may cost $1000 more, if you miss the special program... End of the month and end of the quarter are coming up.. That is always a good time to buy.. Don't feel rushed, or feel like you have to buy.. but, get out there and see what you can do..
2) You didn't describe your '93 Cavalier, but in reality, any 13 year-old car is going to be worth less than $500 on trade.. So, it isn't going to materially affect your final number, no matter when you bring it up.. If the car is in nice shape, you'd probably do much better selling it in the private market..

I found review 5294681 (My first new van). He said he got his 2007 Uplander for $22,000.
Isthere anyway I can know who and where did he buy his uplander and what was the options he got for that price?
I bought a new van last Feb 3, 2007 and the salesman told to me that I got the best price thoughout Canada, The Price was $22,800 + Tax.
Please advise $800 is a big money for me considering we have triplets.
If I know him, I may contact him and ask the options he got then I can come back to my dealer and will try to ask something. A $800 is almost 1 year of gas already.

I am sure a GM dealer is willing to deal if you really want one, even without the incentives. A local GM dealer (Mississippi) still has an unsold 2006 model! These vans are not highly rated and are problematic; most dealers want to get them off their lots ASAP.

Love my 2008 Uplander who else sells a mini van with ground clearance that these vans have? 2007 thru 2009 they were raised 6.5 inches. While the trend to buy crossover vehicles i still love a van. 240hp + 240lb torque with 90% of it from 1500 RPM on Variable cam timing which makes it so clean running that it doesn't even require a EGR valve. Ford Chrysler are left behind in Engine design. Yes some of the older Uplanders had problems! GM saved the best for last.
