    Shoulder space: OnSide vs Avenue

    I can't find the data anywhere. Anyone know if the OnSide has more shoulder room than the Avenue? I've seen that the OnSide is the same shell as the Scenera but with added padding so it seems logical that it is then quite a bit narrower inside than the Scenera.

    My sister says her 9 month old is looking uncomfortably scrunched thru the shoulder area in their Safeseat and too heavy to carry anyway so they're looking into convertibles. I doubt I can talk her into keeping him rfing super long but I'm working on her

    Either way, he's a tall kid(and is genetically likely to remain that way)-torso and legs.
    She has a scenera for a spare but would like to have something that is more padded for their primary seat.
    She drives a Toyota minivan...not sure the year. She had a bit of sticker shock I think when she saw convertible seat prices so seems to want to not go over $100 but will budge a little if she has to. I've got her looking into the MyRide and EFTA but the Truefit seemed too pricey to consider at $140ish.

    Any others I should recommend?
