Help me pick a booster

Ds1 is close to outgrowing the harness on the Nautilus in Nana's vehicle. She drives a Honda Pilot, I think it is a 2012. I was thinking I would convert it to booster mode by June after his 6th birthday. Then I remembered that the Boulevard that she is using when she drives Ds2 expires at the end of August.

So DS2 will need to move to the Nautilus and Ds1 will need a booster. What booster generally fits well in a Honda Pilot outboard in the second row? Ds1 will most likely be 48" by then and 45 or 46 lbs.

I want a tall booster as DS2 is still 97% or higher and will most likely use the booster in a few years.

I have also debated finding a Frontier 90 on sale so either child could use it. It looks easy to convert from harness to booster mode and Nana could install with clicktight herself. She has issues installing the nautilus tight enough using the seatbelt with her leather seats and cannot do the latch clips herself so I have to do the install and removal when needed.

So what is my best bet? I have a few months to decide, but Ds1 has been growing like crazy this year. His torso has gotten so much longer and legs as well. It's like he is playing catchup because last year he didn't grow much!

The Parkway is nice and tall. Diono has some new boosters (Cambria I think) and a Lityle Tykes line coming out this year. They look nice.

I am not completely happy with anything out right now but am holding out hope for the cambria. I emailed them today to ask what colors it will come in and they said the don't know yet but overall it sounds awesome.

Should be out April or May.

This is us. DS is using DD's Nauti in booster mode until the Cambria comes out.

Well, ds1 is riding in a Vivo in DH's Altima now so we could always move that to Nana's car and buy a longer lasting one for DH's car since he does ride there more often. I have also seriously considered selling the Nautilus and replacing with a Frontier 90 that both boys could use. Nana doesn't often have them in the car at the same time anyhow.

Guess I will wait and see what else is out by the time we have to make the switch.

Ds1 also only has one more click on his Frontier 85 in my van, but we lose so much harness height in the captains chair. I bet I could gain height back if I installed in the third row, but the boys like to ride next to each other and it makes the carpool line a little easier with him in the second row. He rides great in the booster, I'm just not ready to not have the harness on longer trips quite yet.
