Side-by-side carseats possible in 2nd row?

20832 Views 12 Replies 12 Participants Last post by  Happyvan
I was wondering if anyone had any luck with side-by-side carseats in the 2nd row. I have a forward facing Britax and a rear-facing infant seat now side by side.

We need to replace the infant seat with another convertible car seat.

Any thoughts or recommendations are greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Shige

yes you can

I have had 3 carseats on the second row, you do have to put the seats in "wide mode" to be able to do this.Also note that it is impossible to easily get to the 3rd row for a passenger if you have 3 carseats in the 2nd row.lol

We have a Britax Frontier in the outboard position and a RF Britax Blvd in the middle seat. The middle seat is pulled forward to the driver's seat. The other outboard position is empty. It pulls forward and tilts nicely to allow my older kids access to the back.

I believe the op meant side-by side.. BTW, does the op have 3 kids? Or just 2? Why would he want side by side? Would it be practical to just use the outer seats and make the middle row empty so its passable to third row? Just me

I've done 3 Britax seats across the second row. They fit fine with the seats in wide mode. I have a rear-facing Blvd behind the passenger seat and a Frontier in the middle on a daily basis. I prefer the seat behin dthe driver to be free because three adults live with us and my mother-in-law is not going to be climbing into the third row, especially not over a carseat. We keep the third row folded to use the extra cargo space anyway.

What do you mean by 'wide mode'?

Here's why I'm curious...

I have an 08 LX. With kid #3 due this winter, I'm hoping to pick up an 8th seat to install. I'm still kinda clueless though, but the sticky topic was quite helpful.

Since the LX doesn't have the overhead seatbelt, I figure I'd have to use LATCH for the carseat in the middle. Does that sound right?

The 4th generation came with that feature. In the EX and above, it allows you to widen the 2nd row seats to fit 3 car seats. The middle seat is a bit wider and the 3 seats have latches now.

They blew the inner armrests of the captain chairs in the process though :(
