Its a 2011 Ford Fusion/ 2005 Impala. Both vehicle drivers are 5'11+. DD2 screamed and screamed riding in the RA50 because the lack of leg room. Shes very leggy and almost never throws a fit about ridding in a seat.What vehicle? Are the Britax seats too big, or is there another reason they won't work?
It does look nice Its over $200 and my budget is closer to $130 or so.I would seriously consider a Pria 70. There are lots of pics and feedback from a Pria owner here: http://www.car-seat.org/showthread.php?t=199217&highlight=pria
*If* you were willing to use a Dorel seat to make what sounds like a very frustrating situation easier, would the padding on the OnSide Air make you more comfortable?love-pink said:The RN is what I was having problems with in the center of the older Impala. Im not comfortable with no foam seats.
Not mean at all. Its exactly why Im at my wits end :hitselfonhead:Honestly, I think you're out of options. I don't mean this to sound mean at all, but I think you're going to have to get Dorel or Evenflo or just give up. Britax has no RF room, the CCO is outgrown, the TF is heavy and wide, you don't like Evenflo, you don't like Dorel, the RN is a pain, the MR isn't working. You're out of options. except maybe a ComfortSport, but I hear that it's roughly the size of the CCO.
:yeahthatsad: I know your not a fan of Dorel but a CA would be a good fit for what your trying to do (if your ok with installing at 35 degrees). I have an XTSL, a TF, a MR, and the CA that DD alternates between and honestly the CA isnt my favorite. Not for any big reasons just little stuff like the cheap feeling chest clip. BUT if I had to pick one seat for DD it would be the CA hands down. She has the growing room she needs in it and it's a super easy install in any car Ive put it in FF or RF. It would be great for you bc if your driver was too tall for a RF install it would be so easy to switch the harness height to a FF setup. I'm sure you know all that and I'll hush now Good luck working something out!Honestly, I think you're out of options.
