    What will last longest, SS1 or Onboard 35?

    I'm confused. According to the spreadsheet of measurements, the KF 30, SS1/Snugride 32 and Onboard 35 all have internal height measurements of 20"

    So does that mean if he's outgrown the KF by height, he's outgrown all of them? EEK!

    Or do kids fit differently in the seats and give more room?

    I really don't like the Onboard 35. I've installed a few and my cousin has one and I just have a hard time liking it, but if I must, I must

    If I can get by with a SS1 I'd rather do that. I had one with the other girls and liked it just fine.

    So even though they all say 20" as the internal height, do kids last longer in certain ones?

    Anyone have any comparison pics?

    No pics, but I've had Laine in a KF and an Onboard Air 35 this week. She's right at the 1" mark on the KF (it was a KF 30, if that matters to you), and she's got three inches over her head in the Onboard. The SS1/SR35 is between those two. Not as tall as the Onboard, taller than the KFs.

    Thanks!

    And SS1 and SR35 are still the same shell correct?

    We have zero money so I am getting a used one from here, but everyone just has SS1's to sell

    I just don't know if we can swing the OB35. Plus I just can't get out of my head trying to get the thing out of the base while doing two checks for my cousins. Maybe cause I"m used to the KF, but I had portabout flashbacks trying to get it out.

    Right, the SS1 and SR35 (and SR32) are the same.
