Are the Monterey & Santa Fe narrow?

Where planning to go from a Grand Caravan to either and Outback or a Forrester. I'll be buying Radians for my 2 & 5 year olds as their current seats are huge and will definitely not fit 3 across.

My problem is a seat for my almost 8 year old. Are the Monterey and Santa Fe narrow like the Radian? Is there another booster that is?

Thanks for any suggestions!

I don't think a Monterey will puzzle with two radians if they're ff.. The bases are narrow but the backs are not, and Monterrey is very wide through the shoulder. (I have two radians and a Monterrey ) if you were planning a ff radian, rf radian in the center and Monterey on the other side I think its a possibility.

At 8, I would be considering a backless though if I was buying new. If Santa Fe doesn't fit, the Harmony backless boosters are super narrow and they're like $13 at Walmart. They're not as deep at the Santa Fe though.

Oh, that might be a good option. One of the radians will be rf and the other ff. I wish we had a store that carried all the possible seats so I could just try them!

I'd go with a backless. The harmony line are all pretty narrow. Graco turbo is another.

We have nothing here. We're half an hour to even Walmart.

Are you open to buying online with free shipping/return shipping? That could open up some possibilities.

Yeah, I have Amazon Prime, so I will probably order from there since they do free returns on baby stuff.
