    3 seats in 3rd row - Lanc Cruiser

    We are going to take a road trip with my husband's brother's family. We each have 2 kids. 3 of the children are forward facing, the 4th child is not. We would like to have the 3 FW facing kids in the 3rd row, and the rear facing infant in the 2nd row middle. My question is about the 3 FW facing kiddos. What is a narrow seat that can be accomodated in the 3rd row of the Land Cruiser? Currently we have a Boulevard, Wizard and a Roundabout. We know the 3 large seats won't work in the 3rd row. I haven't tried 3 Roundabouts (SIL has 2 RA), but my guess is those are even too wide. What is a safe, narrow car seat that we could buy to use?

    If need be I guess we can put the 3 kids in the middle row, but it will be easier to meet their needs in the trip if we are the other way...

    Is the 3rd row safe?

    Sorry for the ramble...

    I would definitely try the 3 roundabouts together 1st. If you're not objectionable to it, try forward- rear - forward facing because sometimes that will work. Otherwise you're looking at $600 + on new seats. I'm guessing someone will recommend the Radian because supposedly it's very narrow, but I've never had one so can't speak from personal experience.

    We will try the 3 RA together first for sure, but if we needed to buy some, I thought maybe a Cosco Scenera. Is everyone here still a fan of the Sceneras?

    The Scenera is a good basic seat. It is wider than the Touriva was, so it may or may not work.
