    Re: Successful Three Across thread

    No pics yet..I'll try to post some tonight but I was messing with some seats in our 2003 Toyota Corolla and was able to do:

    Parkway, ff'ing MA, Parkway (tight but it works)
    Parkway, Parkway, ff'ing MA
    Parkway, SR/C, ff'ing MA
    Parkway, SR/C, rf'ing MA

    I can't seem to get the BG to fit with the Parkway and MA but it fits:
    BG, SR/C, ff'ing or rf'ing MA
    BG, ff'ing MA, SR/C

    Hmmm I guess I should have added this a long time ago!

    Ford Echo

    Radian 65 ffing
    Radian 65 rfing
    Cosco Scenera ffing

    All 3 tethered. Tight fit and front seats had to be scooched up. Do not attempt to fit a tall adult in the front seat!

    Re: Successful Three Across thread

    2008 Chevy Equinox

    All seats installed with seatbelt.

    Outboard Passenger side = RF'ing Cosco scenera
    Middle = FF Safety1st Intera(base off), tethered
    Outboard Driver side = Britax Regent, tethered

    Tight fit but it can be done.
    I installed the Intera 1st, then the scenera, then regent, then pulled the intera out to be sure it was not holding the other 2 seats tight. All are independently solid.

    I wish I had a picture, but I had to lend the intera to a friend before I could get the camera out

    Re: Successful Three Across thread

    2006 Honda Odyssey - 3rd row - Britax Parkway, Britax Parkway, Clek Olli (not LATCHed in)

    Thread the seatbelts before you settle the seats all the way back; there's not enough room to do so after they're wedged firmly together. My two oldest were in the outboard positions (one in a Parkway, the other in the Olli) and they could buckle themselves, but my 5 year old couldn't buckle herself in the middle Parkway, and my 8 year old, who was sitting on the same side as the middle buckle couldn't get it for her, either; an adult had to help them.
