    WWYD for road trip???

    Ok we haven't gotten the replacement radain65 yet our straps are warn down and starting to fray on ours... so currently abby is in her turbo booster. I don't like it i just don't not in the intrepid with cinching seat belts. i don't mind her in it in the land rover b/c i can lock the seat belts on here and she doens't move at all. Anyways we are going to be going up to chicago this weekend for her birthday to the zoo, aquarium ect. staying all night and stuff. we are taking the intrepid what combo of seats should i use??? I don't know but i don't think the uptown, FPSVD, and parkway will fit 3 across but i could try??? right now i have allie in the FPSVD rfing in the middle, abby driver side turbo, austin pass side parkway...
    Or would you use the radian with posssiblely fraying harness??? I'm so torn on this... WHY dont' i just have a seat for her yet!!! Arrrrrggg!

    Is this the seat with the fraying harness adjuster? it's pretty bad right?

    Definitely try the FPSVD, Uptown and Parkway & let us know how it goes.

    Re: WWYD for road trip???

    my harness is fraying it's not pilling i can actully pull small threads out if i try to (only tried once)... I'll give that combo a go but i'm thinking it might not work since the uptown really doesn't sit up on a base..

    Re: WWYD for road trip???

    well that sucked, my fingers hurt! LOL
    I was able to finally get the uptwon driver side seat belt installed w/ 3 twists in stalk (did i mention i HATE HATE seat belt instals in an intrepid) but with LATCH it was to far center set, i got the FPSVD center w/ latch ffing b/c rfing it was leaning against the uptown funny and allie seems to do better ffing on LONG rides. she'll be ok! and the parkway passanger side with lots of room to buckle up himself.
    It's a good thing abby is down to 38#s again (summer time LOL) so she can still ride in the that b/c i think allie wouldn't have let her ride in "her" new seat. hopefully allie will sleep ok in the FPSVD since it does sit more upright then the scenera or uptown did.
