    There could be a few reasons people haven't replied:

    1. there are less Canadian folks on here than US folks so your replies will be limited
    2. shipping within Canada can often be pricey if it's going more than a province away, so costs to trade can end up being pricey
    3. you're asking for a specific seat with specific cover choices, there may simply not be anyone that wants to give up those seats right now
    4. you're very new here so sometimes newbies have better luck buying then selling or trading. Buying a used seat is always a risk so unless you trust the person 100%, people won't buy used. Unfortunately, new people aren't known well enough to have built any trust yet. I see you said your seat was new, but again, the trust factor comes into play.

    Just also wanted to add that no one might be interested because Britax Boulevard is know for not lasting very ling if you plan on extended rear facing while Radian is one of the longest lasting, so don't get discouraged if no one wants to trade. You might have better luck selling your seat locally and then buying a used radian from a trusted source.

    Right but I was saying that people don't know you so have no way of knowing that it hasn't been used, in an accident, etc. I am not saying you aren't being truthful, just saying that people here are cautious when trusting a stranger with their child's life.

    Just realized that I may have misunderstood you, that you have a Radian and are looking for a Britax. Disregard my post please. But you still may have better luck selling locally as shipping costs do put a lot of people off.

    It may also be that most people on here are fairly knowledgeable about car seats and would rather rf longer and the Radian would do that where the Britax won't get most kids over average or better past two rf. You really would do better off Kijiji, I know people post ISO Radians all the time there.

    Britax seats are very easy to install and typically fit in smaller vehicles. My almost 2 year old, who is 50th percentile for height on WHO charts, has tons of room over her head. She'll easily make it to 3, maybe longer.

    Since the average kid is the 50th percentile, if it were true that only average kids made it past two (and I'm not certain if that's accurate), there are still 50% of kids who can make it well past.

    (Of course I'm just going on average overall heights not torso heights so there would be some variance there)

    Lucky, mine aren't average. We're all a bit tall here so Britax hasn't been an option (sad, I love the covers). My youngest is done rf in her Radian soon, if not already. My family members have them, but they're a lot shorter. Ive had luck previously with sil Marathon in little cars, but I've also had my Radian in our Mini.
