Question RF in the 3rd row of a Honda Odessy 2013


New member
I have a friend who wants to ERF 2 kiddos in the 3rd row of a 2013 Odessey. Can it be done?

She is hoping to get Radians back there.

Yes. I have two RF Surerides in my mom's 2012 Ody and (separately) I have installed a Radian back there with an angle adjuster. It wouldn't fit without one. It's easy to load the kids through the hatch. There is no space for a third seat or body between the Surerides.

We have one rf outboard on passenger side with aa. It fits fine and installs easily with latch. I imagine it would work on the other side too but it was fine the first spot so I didn't bother trying anywhere else.

Is it okay if the Radians are touching the middle row, even if that row also has car seats in it?
I don't have the manual handy, but I *think* it is OK. The Radian allows bracing and there are no air bag sensors in the second row seats (as there would be in the front seats).

Sure, I have 2 Radians back there.

BUT I have a FF and a RF. I could not get it another configuration and still fold down part of the seat so they could climb in.

Of course you can have the whole back up...difficult but doable.

We get some funny looks in parking lots when I hop into the hatch and pull out two kids... like I just had them riding loose back there!

I should mention that the kids I'm loading are 30"/20lb/18 months. I think, though, that once they got too big for that maneuver they could get in past the second row, climb into their seats, and just be fastened via standing in the hatch. Right now it's not hard to lift them.

Are the seats in the second row rf'ing or ff'ing? The only seat you cannot have anything touch is the front passenger. I fit a MyRide in the center 3rd row, folded the single seat to make loading easier

Two rf radians are tight with just a little bit of hangover (<1 inch) on the 60 side with the 40 folded down to get through. It works but is a struggle to install.
