Thanks for this thread! Very interesting. Do you think they will be available on time? My DS is about to outgrow his seat, RF, and I think I'd like to get him into one of these so he can remain RF up to 35 lbs. He is in a Graco - I don't remember the model name. He is 28.2 lbs as of a week or two ago, actually that was with clothes on so I think he can make it to Aug or Sept. (Lately he's been eating like there's no tomorrow so sometimes I wonder!)
Next question...He is in the center position of the back seat and when DH drives, the driver's side corner of the car seat rests against DH's seat (DH has long legs so needs to adjust his seat back to be comfy). So - I wonder if we'll need to position the new seat on the passenger side in order to avoid the seats touching, b/c that's not ideal, right? And I'm assuming these Recaros are bigger than the Graco, length-wise. Or maybe we can put the seat more upright since DS is an older toddler???
Sorry for all the rambling but I'm hoping some of you can provide some info so I don't have to buy the seat only to find out it won't work or something. Thanks!
