    securing cargo in a minivan??

    I have a 99 Caravan that has 2 carseats installed in the third row that is in the most forward position. What do you guys use to secure cargo??? Also I have the umbrella stroller in between the back of the seat and the tethers right at floor level. Is this ok??
    One more thing, the girls have a small soft toybox on the bench in the middle of the carseats. They have books and small soft toys in it. The toybox is secured to the middle seatbelt but are the toys/books ok?

    Re: securing cargo in a minivan??

    Anythign that's not soft/plush should be in the trunk/cargo area or under the seats, never on top of the seat.... If you scroll down to the bottom of your screen you'll see some releated threads that should help you out
