What to RF in next????

It looks to me like the top of the headrest and the top of the shell are about level, and he has at least 2" before he gets to the top of the headrest. So if I'm seeing it accurately, he has plenty of room.

I love his rascally smile, by the way! :)

I actually ended up moving the headrest down a click so that it would be even because it was impossible to see anything with it up higher. He can use it at this level, but those times that he wants to stretch a bit it is tight, so we moved it up recently to where it is even/just a smidge below his shoulders.

Glad to hear that you think it is around 2 inches. I will keep an eye on him for any sudden growth spurts, and unless I absolutely fall in love with one of the other seats we may just try to hold out for the Nextfit and see where things stand when it shows up on the scene.

He is a sweet little rascal. He was so funny taking these pictures. He was so annoyed to have that ruler on his head, messing up his hair. Who knew he cared about his hair so much!:ROTFLMAO:

Not sure about how much space you have available but I'm 175cm (5'9") and installing the Foonf RFing with anti-roll bar puts the seat at such a reclined angle that I had to scoot forward my driver's seat in a mid-size suv (X5) to accommodate the angle. This should not be an issue once we stop using the anti-roll bar.
The harness is not much work to adjust; i thought the same but my husband said he'll make the adjustment anyway. We also looked at the Peg SIP 70 but our poor design and difficult cleaning experience with other Peg products made us try the Canadian brand with the Crypton fabric.
At any rate, here are some pics to show Foonf's size.

Have you tried it on recline position 2? Clek has OK'd that position for RF with anti-rebound bar.

Thanks for the pictures! I love how much legroom she has. Let us know if you lose much legroom when you stop using the rebound bar.

Could you possibly measure how much space it takes up in your car from the seat back to the back of the car seat? My 3rd row doesn't have tons of space so knowing about how much space this takes up would help.

I was able to try out the peg, Graco, and Radian in my car last week. Sadly, our BBB doesn't have the foonf and they won't be carrying it either. The peg was no bigger than the blvd, didn't care for it at all. The Graco went in very nicely. It didn't give us a ton more leg room which was a bummer because it was great in every other way, but it is a contender!

I got the Radian in!!! I don't know if something in the redesign helped or if I was just car seat challenged on the particular days I tried it before, but it went in quite nicely. It still doesn't have some of the easy use features that I like in a seat, but the harness wasn't as beastly as some say. Since DS will probably always ride outboard I need to decide how much having nice deep sides vs ease of getting kid in the seat factors in. I think I will just bide my time and hope that we make it until the next fit comes out and see how that works for us. Maybe I will get to a city with a foonf in the meantime. :rolleyes:
