    I got 3 boosters, 3rd Row Sienna

    I have to upload a pic to the 3across thread. I have Vivo, Parkway, Bodyguard. I think another BG would work better than the Vivo, but the cover's drying. I'll find out on Monday if the kids can actually buckle themselves. Now when A or J has a friend over, all 3 can go in the 3rd row, instead of someone 2nd row in a backless.

    Re: I got 3 boosters, 3rd Row Sienna

    Cool! Let me know how buckling goes. I have bodyguard, harmony literider, and a radian across the back row. I had them the other way round, but ds complained that it was too hard to buckle. I'd love to be able to get all boosters in the back.

    I was thinking about you when I did it too. If you lived closer, I'd give you the BGs and sell you the PW You need the 3 across more than I do.

    I think the kids will be able to buckle, especially if I take out the Vivo and put in the 2nd BG. The Vivo and PW are very close together. My 6 year old might not be bale to buckle the PW, but I'm sure my 9 year old could.

    Good to know. My son's turbo won't fit in the middle of the back row. Was it the parkway you had there?

    Re: I got 3 boosters, 3rd Row Sienna

    Yes, it was the Parkway I had center. The BG was too wide to fit between the buckle stalks, but because of the PW's curves, it fit nicely.

    The kids I think can buckle fine after they get used to it. The lockoffs are different for us. I don't like the BGs though because the kids kept taking their heads out of the wings- might as well have a backless booster. But to be in the wings, their heads had to be bolt upright, glued to the seat.

    Re: I got 3 boosters, 3rd Row Sienna

    Thanks for the info. Ds2 wont' be booster age for a while, but when I do purchase one for him I want one that will fit in the middle just in case I ever want to use it there. It was majorly inconvenient not being able to put ds1 in the middle in the TB.

    The harmony literider works perfectly in that middle seat, but it's a backless. My kids are fine in the bodyguard. If you ever decide to get rid of them, please give me first dibs. I wish britax would bring them back with a few improvements.
