Ok. So right now i have one britax marathon for my 4 yr old. And one graco nautilus for my 2 yr old. Problem is, when we get my step daughter, we have to take 2 separate cars to go anywhere. Bc the carseats are too big to put all 3 in the my ford escape. I really want the diono radians. Bc thy are slim. And can be used until a booster as well. Who has one? And if you have more than 1. How does it fit in your car?



I have a 2009 ford escape

I have 2 Radian RXT's right now and love them!! My 4 1/2 and 2 1/2 year old are rear facing in them right now and I have a Graco My Ride 65 installed between them for baby #3. They are heavy seats but not complicated to install or move, imo.

And yes, this My Ride is tilted, but can be up to 20 degrees. It's a seat belt install and tends to effect the angle a little once you tighten. May go ahead and use a little locking clip trick to get it straighter before baby gets here.




Also, if you want to rear face the 2 yr old in one I would suggest the extra Angle Adjuster as without it they can be rather reclined.

What kind of car do you have? Mine is a crossover. So its suv body. But sedan sized back seat..

I have 2 radians right now in my car and a britax frontier. I have a mini van though. Right now my oldest two are in the captain seats (including the one in the frontier) and the younger two are in the back in radians, but if I put them differently I can fit a myride in the middle (which I probably will for baby number 5 when they happen) . I can't say the farthest back is too big though.



My dad has a Toyota Venza though and when he takes my kids anywhere (he babysits them like 3 times a year) we put the frontier in the middle, radians on the side, it all works out somehow. My oldest sits in the front seat in the car, which makes me kinda nervous but she's almost 14 and I shouldn't be . Though once I have baby number 5 if my parents baby sit they're gonna either have to get a van or borrow mine because there's no way that'd work with a venza unless they used a ton of cars and that's a pain in the ass if you have to take kids to school or something.

Currently a Ford Explorer, though I've had them in other vehicles as well. They take up very little side to side room and when rear facing with the angle adjuster very little front to back space, even for their height.

I have a 2011 we explorer amd we have 2 radians. How do you get them to fit? We are having the problem with no leg room for front passengers. I can only use the adjuster with 1 as my younger son is too young for it.
