    3 across 3rd row of suburban, was Re: Regent in a fully occupied Suburban...enough room for other kids?

    I also have 6 in a 2007 Suburban. I would love to know what seat would fit in nicely in the middle of the 3rd row. I have booster seats in both ouboard positions. Right now we are trying to use a HBB in the middle third row, but my children are having trouble buckling.

    Thanks

Plus there is tether issues...does she have a tether anchor in that position?

    I'm bumping this up for the Suburban savvy members to see.

    The 3rd row of suburbans is pretty small compared to the 2nd row. I got the cargo center with turbo booster outboard driver side. I could barely get the TB buckled (dd could not do it herself). I sat in the outboard passenger side and at 5'3" and 120lbs I was squished. I don't have a radian to compare but I know that it is a pretty narrow seat. The Fisher Price Save Voyage Booster is a pretty narrow booster so maybe 2 of them would work with the cargo or radian.

    I haven't been able to get any booster combinations in the 3rd row of my Suburban (1999)...if the booster fits, there is no possible way to buckle it.

    Fisher Price Safe Voyage Booster is the booster I have, but it is still too wide for the middle position for the other's to buckle easily -- that's why I'm hoping that there is a narrow seat out there that might work. I would really like to put DS (age 2) back there in his Marathon and a narrow seat in the middle that way only one child would have to buckle a booster seat back there.
