Maestro and Turbo, same width?

If I remove the cupholders, would a Maestro fit where a high hack Turbo does? I am back at square 0 with the 3 across again. The almost 3 yo maxed out the MR and the 6 month old, outgrew the baby trend. The radian is my daugthers ride and that has to stay that way so I am getting my car retrofitted with a top tether for a forward facing seat. I can do MA65rf passenger side, RN rf center and a turbo driver side. So I am hoping the maestro would fit in that spot for the almost 3 yo?

Evenflo is saying (even though they briefly approved it) not to remove the cupholders now. So unless you can get your hands on a program version, cupholder-less is a no-go.

That said- can you buckle the Turbo easily there? If so, you may be able to make the Maestro work even with cupholders, especially if you can scootch it a little more toward the door since it's harnessed...

Not too easily but it is doable. However the turbo is is *this* close to the door, any closer it would be touching. Ughhh I wish I were rich and could just get 3 radians to solve my problems!

Thanks for the reply. I keep stressing out about it. I had ot all figured out until the kids decided to grow over the summer :D

In my 3-across the maestro fit where the turbo did but they both were puzzled under the side of a FFing Roundabout50 so I don't if that will help you or not.

Hmmmm I wonder if it would work with the RA rf? I most definitely need two rf seats. Dd turns 3 in November but I am nowhere near ready to turn her. I am gonna try to get to BRU and Teuton the maestro in my car.

I really want to figure out what works before I send my car in for retroffiting as I will only be getting one top tether. They have the parts already they are just waiting for me to make the appointment.
