    Booster recommendation

    My daughter is 41 lbs, 4 1/2 yrs old. I am considering a high-back booster for her to ride in our second vehicle, a Dodge Ram. It has a full back seat. She might ride in it once or twice a month, I just can't justify spending two hundred dollars on a Nautilus when I know she meets the requirements of a booster. She is a well behaved girl, sits well, and I know she'll ride well and not squirm around in one. She normally rides in a Frontier (still harnessed) in our Odyssey. Just looking to spend around $50 or so for something for her to ride in the truck if need be.

    Another option is the Evenflo Maestro. It's $75, but it has 18" top slots, a 50 pound harness limit, and it installs easily.

    Decent fitting, yes. Long lasting, no. It's usually outgrown around the same time as the harness (by torso height), or with just enough time to go and buy a booster.
