I'm struggling to find a configuration that works for us. 2 FF seats, Graco Tranzitions and Chicco myfit, two RF seats, Graco extend2fit and radian rxt. Ideally, I want my FF kiddos in the third row, because RF kids are infants and I don't know about getting them in their seats, would have to be through back hatch probably and that sounds not great 😂
The caveat is, our passenger belt in the third row might be damaged. I have to take it in to be inspected 🤦 and I'm having a heck of a time installing the Tranzitions third row center. (Although I just now though about doing the myfit there, not sure why that didn't occur to me earlier....)
Any suggestions? Tips? This might end up temporary until the guy inspects the belt then I can use that position for a ff seat. But I sat the myfit and transitions next to each other it seemed to not fit 🤷*♀

Remind me where you have tether anchors in the third row? Is it just center and passenger’s side, or do you have them in both outboard seats?

Okay, so if you already tried putting the seats adjacent to each other and they didn't fit (which doesn't surprise me), then your best bet is to put one of the rear facing seats in the third row, driver's side. Then if one of your forward facing children is under the LATCH limit you can put his/her seat in the third row passenger's side. It shouldn't be too difficult to climb into the third row to buckle the rear facing child - just climb on the side that has the forward facing car seat so you don't have to climb under a seat! The older kids might be able to help too, and buckling through the back is not terrible if one of the kids can put the baby in.

We had 4 car seats in a different mini van. 3 were RF. We put 2 of the RF seats in the 3rd row and loaded those babies from the trunk. Wasn't as difficult as I thought it would be.
