    What year Forester? They aren’t very roomy in general, similar to a compact sedan. I have done a baseless KeyFit and a SureRide in the center of a 2007(?) Forester with a tall driver. There was very limited front-to-back space, but the NextFit is pretty compact, so it might work. It’s hard to tell what configuration they would work in, though. Some years of Foresters have quite a hump as the center seat, which can make seats puzzle together differently than if they were on a level seat.

    Are you planning to fly with the seats you list? Flying with a baseless infant seat is a breeze, but the others would be difficult. We could recommend alternatives for the older two kids if you’d like, just give us ages, weights, and heights.

    It's a 2019 I believe. Only traveling with the Nuna pippa without base the other seats are at the destination

    It appears to have a 60/40 folding back seat, so I would try the NextFit on the 40 portion, booster in center, and Pipa outboard on the 60 portion. This would require those in the front seats to not be super tall, but it might work. The main reason I’m thinking the Pipa outboard is that it will be easier to get a good baseless install with the soft seat back than the harder folding armrest. Can the people at your destination go to a Buy Buy Baby and try the setup? Or maybe they could borrow an infant seat to try?
