    Recaro Performance Booster. Anyone here use one?

    I just bought the Recaro Performance Booster. (it was between this one and the Britax Parkway sgl. We were waiting on the Cambria, but that might never be released as its been fooooorrrever now. grrr) Anyways, its set to deliver on Wed!!yay! It got awesome reviews and looked pretty sturdy (as far as boosters go), roomy as well. So Im hoping it works well after our turbobooster fail. (hated that booster lol)

    I drive a 2013 Odyssey. My daughter is 6y old, 48in and 53 lbs. Does anyone have a child with those stats and (maybe even the same van) that can show me pictures, or just tell me how they like the fit? We are moving her from a 5 point harness, Diono Radian. She is booster trained from carpool.

    Im still unsure of how we will configure the seating arrangements. Currently there will be DD1 in the Recaro booster, DS2 FF in a Britax Marathon and DD3 RF in a Britax Marathon. Suggestions for this would be helpful too We currently have them three across in the 2nd row, but the radian is much narrower than the recaro Im assuming

    Thanks!! Here's the one I got

    We love our Performance Booster! I drive an Expedition, so I'm no help on arrangement. The only thing I have to make sure of is that it is pushed far enough toward the door that DS can buckle himself. It's wide enough to make it impossible to buckle if it's too far toward the middle.



    This is DS. He'll be 7 next month, and is around 52lbs.

    My 8YO DD (about the same size as yours) LOVES her Performance Booster. It's her daily ride and is her favorite booster ever - and she's ridden in quite a few.

    This is her in the carseatblog review.
    Andrea, CPST, Tech proxy, special Needs trained
    DS 4/01 - Seatbelt * DD1 11/05 - Oobr, PWSGL, Performance Booster
    DD2 10/09 - GN SS/Argos
    Plus a plethora of "spare" seats for everyone.
