    Affordable suggestions for Caravan

    Hi guys, long time no post.

    I have a friend who drives a 2013 Caravan. She needs to get new seats for both of her girls and she's on a tight budget.

    DD 1 is 3.5 years old, ff, 38 3/4 inches tall and 33lbs.

    DD 2 just turned 2 and is rfing, 37 inches tall, and 21lbs. She's outgrowing her current seat by height.

    Thanks!

    DD2, 4, 39lbs, ff RXT
    DD3, 2, rf Rainier

    Does she have any other kids? Does she need these to work in the 3rd row at all?

    Assuming no complexities, both kids in captain's chairs, Evenflo Maestro for the older one. How long does she want to RF the younger one? I'd go with either Evenflo Sureride or Graco Contender. The Contender will get her to 40 pounds RF; the Sureride to 40 inches. The Contender costs a bit more, but will also harness FF longer.

    Oh, why is she replacing the seat for the older kid? And which seat is the younger one outgrowing? The older kid might fit FF in the younger kid's outgrown seat.

    A sale Maestro ($99 fairly often) or two Titan 65s ($130 regular price at Walmart) would be good options. The Titan 65 goes in both RF and FF quite well. Seats are expensive in Canada With the height of that two year old (is that height correct? wow) I'd want at least one Titan in the mix.
