    Any idea how it compares in height to the Peg? I think she has 3/4" left until she outgrows the Peg. I found the Jool on some Canadian sites and on one page it says both 40" max RF height and 43" max RF height. I just measured her and she's exactly 39".

    Oh doh! I was typing mine while you posted. Okay, so it is 40" for Canada. Must be 43" for USA? or the site I saw just has a typo in one spot. Dang. She technically would have 1" which could last a bit assuming she already isn't at other height indicators. My goal would be to make it another year and half, but not certain an inch would get us that.

    I might have lied and it is 43". I can't find my manual now, for some reason. I have heard it is 'huge and wide' from those in the know, so perhaps not a solution.

    Well the one Canadian site I saw that had specs said both 40" and 43" so you could be right. The wide wouldn't matter if it worked front to back as when she's outboard, no one can fit in the centre anyway. But ya, if huge means front to back huge, not a solution. I should look at it I guess. But hopefully I can find out the real RF height limit first so I don't waste time looking if it's 40".

    I'm guessing a child who has 3/4" of height left in the Peg would not fit in the Next.

    Re: Dismayed with Canuck options - any suggestions?

    And I just measured the room she's got left in the Peg after we got home today and it looks like a smidgen over 1/4" is what she's got. Bah. Now I am going to need TWO new seats I guess. Sigh. At least with the other vehicle there are 0 concerns with space, but still the options are about the same anyway.

    Re: Dismayed with Canuck options - any suggestions?

    I just did some comparisons with my DD3. She is 38" and 34 lbs. She has pretty much outgrown the Peg, and has miles of room left in the Boulevard G4. The Boulevard saves about 2" front to back. But of course that room is lost in leg room. I took some pictures if you want to see.

    Probably won't work due to height anyway, standing height, but the Jool is pretty huge.

    I'm pretty dismayed after looking around at the seats due to this thread to see how much some have gone up in price. I know the dollar is awful at the minute but $169 for a sureride!!!

    Peg pretty much outgrown:

    She said she was comfy in the Boulevard. It would probably get more difficult in winter, and I would definitely have to remove boots to be able to buckle her properly!

    DH thought she seemed taller. So I measured her again today. 39.5" exactly. So she grew half an inch since Sept 11. I guess I better hope that was all in the legs else the Peg may be done which means I would have no seat for her in one vehicle since it doesn't install right FF. Frick.
