Chevy Traverse + Radian XT = True Love

So after driving my new beauty around for a couple of days, I quickly came to the conclusion that I was going to have to switch out dd's seat. I had installed the BV70 rf'ing and even with the seat back reclined, she had absolutely no leg room...and she has short legs! She had no problems in the Sub, but the Traverse has really sloped seats in comparison. So the seat was much more upright.

Solution? RN XT. Fits like a DREAM. Nice recline, without being over reclined, or too upright....and best of all, more leg room. Here is my chunk of a 27mo old in the RN XT.

She did not want to get out of the seat! I think she is way more comfy in the RN. Looks like this will be her f/t ride while rear facing!!

Yes, the Radian installs crazy upright in the Traverse and cousins - great for older kids, impossible for newborns (at least with the old boot, not sure if new boot is better or not.)

You have a real cutie pie. :)

Yeah, I couldn't get a 45* angle, or even remotely close even with the BV. You'd of had to use noodles. But the Radian is perfect since it usually installs over reclined in most vehicles...it's perfect in the Traverse...at least for a 2yr old!
