I need major carseat help

I have a Alpha Omega Elite that stays in my car. It was installed by the fire dept and recently checked by THP. We have another car seat, a Graco Safeseat, that we put in dh's truck and the sitter's car if needed. My ds is pretty well outgrown it in length now, and we need a new one. I need recommendations for a resonably priced carseat that will allow ds to remain RF and can be moved in and out of a vehicle fairly easily. It would be in dh's truck (Toyota Tacoma) in the front seat (no airbag and yes, the thought of front seat makes me want to vomit) or in the sitter's PT Cruiser in the back seat. It needs to be fairly easy to install or have a base that can stay in the back of the sitter's car to make it easier for her. It wouldn't be used much, the Graco has only been used a handful of times in the last 10mos, but I need it for emergencies. TIA!!

The Cosco Scenara is an awesome cheap convertible that is about $40 at walmart, it's light and would probably be pretty easy to move around, it has a 35 lb RF'ing limit also

Re: I need major carseat help

You won't find a convertible seat with a detatchable, leave-in car base like an infant seat.

I know you say it wouldn't be used much, but I think I'd get two Sceneras. Moving the seat back & forth leaves too much room for install errors. Unless all people who will be installing it are properly trained on how to do so by a certified tech, then there is too much room for error. When we had DS, we had one infant seat & two bases. When it came time to switch him to a convertible, I kept price in mind because I knew I needed 2 of them b/c I didn't want to move one back & forth.
