    For Sale Old style marathon cover - Hannah

    I LOVED this cover and would love to see it loved by someone else. This cover was only sold at Target in 2008/2009. It is brown with pink polka dots and pink flowers! I'll try to put up a picture, but I'm pretty sure it's the one in my profile pic. I bought this seat new with my spare change...

    Six year old in a cargo van?

    Can my six year old sit in the passenger seat (booster) of a 2005 Chevy express cargo van? With airbag turned off? Wouldn't be very often, only if absolutely necessary. I'm hoping a low back booster will work so he can keep it in the van, but we could do a HBB if needed. Thanks!

    Flipping headrests

    My DH drives a 2008 Saturn Vue. My almost 6 year old rides in a booster in his car. The boosters (turbo and performance booster) fit well when the headrests are flipped. They are locked in when flipped, I have to use a paper clip and the release button and pull all at the same time to get...

    A friend messaged me last night that she thinks the Marathon Classics aren't being made any more? If they are still being made, where is a good place to buy one? She wants to get one for her husband's car. Also - is it the Marathon Classic that the old covers fit on (I think she has a...

    Thank you for all the input regarding which seat to purchase. Our church is helping out a family and after everyone's helpful input, I purchased a SureRide for the family.

    Need your help. . .

    Well, I was able to purchase the SureRide from Target for the family that my church is helping out. I'm hoping that I can meet with them directly and show them how to use the seat, but it might be more of a situation where I drop it off with the lady who is in charge of the housing unit. I'm...

    Done with RF - outgrew MA by weight

    I'm kind of sad to end our RF journey:( Taylor is 4 yrs 7 months and just hit 35lbs and outgrew her MA RF. Am I right that it's unusual to out grow the MA by weight before height? She's got lots of room heightwise - only on the second slot and at least a few inches above her head! Here's...
