    Arrow Where do you put a carseat in a conversion van?

    I'm going to visit some family and they have a conversion van. I was wondering if it's better to put the carseat in the captains chairs or further back in the middle of the third row bench seat?

    Re: Where do you put a carseat in a conversion van?

    Where ever you're most comfortable and you get a good installation. If there's a lap belt only in the third row middle and you're transporting a bunch of people I'd put it there, just so that way a person doesn't need to use the lap belt. If the van isn't full I'd just put it where ever is easiest.
