Best Britax Carseat??

I am trying to figure out what is the best Britax carseat for my DD. She is 11 months 29 lbs 34 inches tall. I really want to keep her rear facing for as long as possible. I am thinking about the roundabout or the marathon. I can't really tell the difference between the two so please help a carseat challenged momma . I found a roundabout for 169.00 with fre shipping and it seems to be the exact same seat that I saw for 229.00 on a different site why the HUGE price difference? TIA

I would go with a Boulavard. It has the side impact protection wings. IMO it is the best seat. I have my 11 month old rf'ing in one and love it.

The difference is that the Roundabout only goes to 40 lbs and the Marathon/Blvd both go to 65 lbs. So I would go with either the MA or the BLVD...they both rf to 33 lbs.

I would go with the marathon over the roundabout, mainly cause the weight limits. but if you can afford to go up to the blvd then do that
btw we have marathons for both of our kids

We have two Marathons for our 3.5 and 2 year olds. They've been in them since moving from their bucket seats. I LOVE them. I will never get anything but a Britax.

ITA. We just got 2 boulevards for both our kids. the side impact protection was the deciding factor for us

Thanks so much for all your help! I ended up getting the boulvard (my DH is going to kill me when it finds out how much I spent ) I hope it gets here soon!
