RF Convertible in a Nissan Juke

We're traveling to Florida next week with my in-laws and there's a chance I may need to install my daughter's car seat RF in their Nissan Juke. It's a small car. I've put boosters in there before but never any RF seats. I don't have time to try anything out before we go as we'll meet up with them somewhere on the road so I'd like to know ahead of time if I'm going to have any issues. I have a My Ride and a Scenera available. Will I be okay? Are there any installation tips or tricks I should keep in mind? Thanks!

We have a juke and it definitely doesn't play well with rf seats. I know the cco will fit, the evenflo triumph at 30 degrees, and the my ride barely in the green. That's with the front seats barely comfortable for me (5'3"). Middle seat doesn't install well due to a hump. Outboard are pretty easy with latch or seatbelt though. No special tricks.

Thanks Angela. Do you think it's worth me trying to bring the Scenera just in case or will I be okay with the My Ride? I'm 5'5" and will probably sit in the passenger seat. My MIL is maybe a little over 5 feet and sits pretty far forward when she drives. Any chance I may be able to fit the My Ride behind her?

I have a scenera I can try out if you'd like. Can't until tonight though.

That would be awesome if it's not too much trouble, but please don't inconvenience yourself. My preference is the My Ride because it'll be more comfortable for her, but I'll bring the Scenera if the MR is potentially going to be an issue.

And by the way, thank you! I can't figure out how to rep you, or else I would.

Do you just click on it? I'm using my iPad and can't get it to work on the website or the app. What am I missing?!?

Tried it out. The scenera fit at a 30 deg angle with the vehicle seat all the way forward. Install wasn't bad. Pool noodles would probably help, but it did install okay without them. Hopefully these pictures are okay. First time I've posted them on the app. I have a few pics on my computer of the my ride I can post as well.

Re: RF Convertible in a Nissan Juke

Here it is with the my ride. Unfortunately, I don't remember where the sear was in this picture. I think it was 3-4 clicks back. I don't have the my ride anymore, so I can't try it again. We're planning on using the triumph in there when the coccoro is outgrown.

Re: RF Convertible in a Nissan Juke

So did the Scenera take up more room front to back than the My Ride (if you can remember)? I'm really wanting to take the My Ride if I can as I think the baby will be more comfortable in that for a 15 hour trip.

Re: RF Convertible in a Nissan Juke

Hmmm...I guess it'll be the Scenera after all. We needed it for a 3 across in the third row of our van and there's no room to bring the My Ride as well. Thanks again for all your help!
