Re: URGENT HELP! I can't get my seats in the dang car...

OK. With my husband's assistance, we now have the 2 Radians in the 2nd row, one FF in the center and one RF outboard behind the passenger. The middle is seatbelt install. It is a tad difficult to get the 40 seat folded to get into the back, but you can do it. I just have to check the tightness of the belt each time. It's only for the weekend, so it's ok.

However, the RF seat outboard is very close to the edge of the seat bottom. Is that ok? I pushed it over some like you suggested. It is a rock solid install, meaning rocking the car when you rock the seat. What do you think?

I look forward to company leaving. Haha. My folks live in town, and when we go out I crawl over the girls seats and sit in between them and let my dad drive!

If it's rock solid and it's all the way on the seat then it's fine. You may find that you gain more room by using the seat belt instead of LATCH to install. Make sure that if you're LO is under 40 lbs and the seat is tethered (FF) that you are using the Safe Stop.

In the past I've had a FF seat in the third row (but I have tether points) and a RF seat in the center row onboard. Total PITA. God help us if we have a 3rd child and have to figure this all out on a permanent basis.
someone on c-s.org has 6 seats in a pilot. I think 2 boosters, 4 convertibles, three rear facing, IIRC.
