    Which seats for travel?

    I have 2 boys, almost 3 and 6 months. Between the boys we have a MA, 2 TFP's, and a frontier 85.
    We will be flying on southwest (only the oldest has a seat, baby will be on my lap). At our destination we are renting a minivan. After talking to the local company it will be a grand caravan or a town and country. Which seats should I bring. DS1 is currently FFing and little man is obviously RFing. Any other tips would be appreciated.

    Re: Which seats for travel?

    Does the baby fit in the Marathon? I'm leaning toward one Marathon and one TF. That way, let's say you have trouble installing the Marathon RFing. Well, you can turn it FFing for the elder boy and use the TF RFing instead. It gives you a bit more flexibility to have two seats that can be used by either boy.
