FF or RF? I've fit lots of stuff in my moms fit. Especially if there's only one carseat back there. Most convertibles will fit RF in the center without affecting the front seats too much. I've installed:
Roundabout 55 (both rear and forward)
Roundabout 50
Radian (rear and forward)
Nautilus
Scenera (rear and forward)
Complete air 65 (tight RF, fine FF)

I bet the Evenflo Maestro or Secure kid would fit well, though I've not tried them myself.

The only two seats I've put in a fit are a RF radian with an angle adjuster and a frontier ff. Both fit fine. We were fine to put the radian in with out the angle adjuster, but dh and I are both under 5' 8" so we aren't tall. A taller person might have been uncomfortable with it like that. It was actually a really easy car to install in.

I've had a RF True Fit, both a FFing and RFing Symphony, a FFing Scenera and a Maestro in MILs.

Forgot to add, DS will be FF. So I'm basically looking for the safest, cheapest, biggest weight/height limit seat out there! He is in a Britax Boulevard CS 70 in my car. I will definitely look into the suggestions given and would love a few more options to research!
