    Does this plan make sense???

    Ok, Jackson is just tall period so it makes sense for me to have the tallest seat on the market so we are keeping at least one regent (it can go in the capt's chair of my Ford) At least untill something better comes along (crosses fingers)

    So when prechool starts:
    Van: Regent
    MIL's car: ? Triumph Advanced?
    DH's truck: Apex

    For the time being we can use the BV in MIL's car and put Camille back in the SS1. That will not last long. My sister needs the SS1 end of OCt. and Jackson just doesn't have much room in the BV. I am thinking that a Triumph Advanced would be a good tide over seat. He would have 1.5 in that seat. If I like it, it would be awesome for Camille to RF in till 35 lbs. My MIL is talking about getting an SUV so that would probably solve alot of my problems ( currantly Ford 500 )

    So does anyone have any other ideas?

    BTW, the Apex measures 17.25 and the BV only 16.25? ( I took the cover off the headrest to measure and made sure it was all the way up) I am not sure I want to keep the BV if it measures that low. I could put that money elsewhere....

    yeah the BV is known to measure lower than the MA or DC.

    if you want to get rid of the BV then you could get a second apex and a triumph(and not have to shell out any more money cause those 2 together would be the same price or slightly less than the BV lol!). How would that be?

    Actually, that sounds like a great plan!!! Now I just have to see if the BV will fit in any of the boxes I have on hand. Its only 3 months old and should retain most of its value. I also have a shannoh BV cover that is almost brand new.

    I just wonder about RF tethering, how important is that?

    well that would be something to think about...
    I personally am OK with not having a rearfacing tether on a good seat in a good vehicle. Id just get a more cocoon like seat that a flat one(like the radian I wouldnt feel comfortable not tethering because it has so sides, kwim?)
