Re: A question from my husband

I don't know what the Tribeca's seats are like but Radians tend to do well with very flat seats where the buckle stalks are recessed and in the bight.

Re: A question from my husband

I don't know if this will post correctly or not, but there is a 'Radian Successful Install Thread' over in car-seat.org, and a search for 'tribeca' turns up two successful installs, one RF in a 2008 Tribeca, and one FF in a 2006 Tribeca. The link to the RFing successful install (since I think that's what you're after) is here:

The CA and MR are actually known for good leg room. The Roundabout and other Britax convertibles are definitely not. If you are unhappy with leg room in either of your current seats, you'd hate a Britax.

I do not mind the leg room. My DH thinks the CA isn't good for leg room for our 2.5 year old but he does not have anything to compare it to. My DD1 doesn't seem to mind; she puts her legs over the sides or crosses them fine. Our 12 month old in the MR is fine. We just hate how huge the MR is. It's a beast. If we don't settle on Radians we will get 2 more Complete Airs.

I hate the mr install rf. I sold ours because it wouldn't tighten in my truck.

Radian installs like a dream for me both rf and ff with a seatbelt. I don't use latch bc mine have super latch and it has issues.

Honestly, the easiest install ff and rf with the most leg room I've found is Truefit. It's like butter.

But how is the true fit with front to back room? In every picture I've seen it looks huge. So y'all even compared to radians.

I find the myride ridiculously easy to install rear facing. I actually prefer it over our britax decathlon, hands down. I can get a rock solid install in 2-3 minutes, if that.

My mom has a Subaru Tribeca and I've installed it rear facing in there with no issues.

Re: A question from my husband

The angle of the True Fit v the Radian depends on the vehicle. I have put a True Fit in a Yaris without a problem. It doesn't take up a ton of front to back room. The Radian with the angle adjuster will take up the least amount of room but then you have sacrificed legroom.
