3 kids in a GC


New member
I’ll be driving my kids around in a Grand Caravan for a day or 2 next week, with minimal time to try out car seats. Which kid should go in the 3rd row?

9 year old: Britax Essentials HBB (would this work in the center?)

6 year old: Britax Parkway SGL (also center?)

4 year old: Britax Frontier 90 in harness mode (center?)

I think I’d prefer the 4 year old, so I have a prayer of seeing out the back, if the Frontier works there.

(And no, I’m not generally that big on Britax—these are the only 3 I’ve ever owned, they’re just what is going to work out.)

I think any will work in the center. The boosters would be a bit harder there just because of how the seat contours go but will work as long as the settings aren't too high. You could also put the 9 year old on the side if seeing out the side is a concern- I used a Midpoint on the side and had no concerns with the belt coming out or anything so the Skyline should too (as long as it's not raised taller than the 2nd highest setting- that's as tall as will fit in the 3rd row. Might have to be even lower in center.)

Oh, I forgot I’d asked here. Plans changed (again) and the GC is no longer necessary. Good to know for the future, though.
