Coccoro or Roundabout 55?

I am looking for a convertible carseat for the newbie for DH's truck. My question is which seat takes up the least amount of space front to back when rfing? The Coccoro or the Roundabout 55?

When I looked at the specs online, it says the Coccoro is 27 or 28 inches in height where the Roundabout is 26. Does that sound about right?

Re: Coccoro or Roundabout 55?

Do you have a Babies R Us store nearby? They should have a roundabout55 and allow you to try it in your car. If it fits, I'd get that one, as it will last much longer than the coccoro. I'm not sure which one actually takes up less space, because I haven't tried them both in the same car.

I'm going to assume the CCO but you never know I guess.

I have a CCO on the way and I have a MA70 (same shell as RA55) so I can take comparison pics for you when it gets here if you want

What kind of truck? The RA55 installs and fits perfectly in my DHs extended cab silverado. When it is installed in the middle of the bench back seat, the front seats both go ALL the way back.

DH also has the extended cab silverado truck. I was hoping to fit it behind the drivers seat. We have DS1 in the middle in a Nautilus and for some reason that is the only place I can get a solid install with it. Probably because that is the only place that has latch. (which I find odd)

That is why I need it to not take up a lot of front to back space because DH is 6'3".
