low profile, narrow nbb

What is the narrowest and lowest profile backless booster?

Trying to get 3 across in our 2002 Subaru wagon for occasional use. Normally, DD1 (almost 9) rides in a HBB Turbobooster in there when it is just her and DS. DD2 doesn't usually ride in there, so we don't keep a seat installed for her.

Booster is going to have to go in the middle of the back seat, so the hump boosts her up more and with the Bubblebum, her ears are going above the tallest headrest setting. I tried her in the center seat without the Bubblebum, but her knees don't bend at the edge of the seat although her feet can rest easily on the hump on the floor, so she can't go without a booster (right?).

Looking for another booster that we could use instead of the Bubblebum.

The Harmony Literider available at Walmart might do the trick.

I wonder if it would be okay to deflate the Bubble Bum a bit. It might be something to check. The Bubble Bum is awesome for 3 across in my Prius. I had been using it center for my 11 year old granddaughter which has a bit of a hump and it wasn't that comfortable for her. She was also getting close to the top of the head rest. We abandoned that for her brother, 10, who 5 steps there (center).
