I just measured the van seat width and it is 18.5 inches, like yours. It must be a case of installation - push that sucker hard
The RB is pushed in enough so that it won't jiggle and fall out easily, (on carseat.org some techs mentioned having to hammer it a little in order for it to stay in, so that is what I did too). It is worth working on the installation issues, because it truly is a great seat. We have two Radians also BTW, (RF for my 3 yr old), and I love that too, although I have yet to use it FF.
I just don't get it, though- if the seat is 21.5 and your bench is only 18.5, how can you not have an overlap unless the RB goes through the crevice between the two seats? When you say to push it in, how can you push it in past where no seat exists? It doesn't seem physically possible. I am so confused!
|This is what it looks like when a Regent is intalled in an 06 Caravan. The front bench is not reclined at all and the back bench only has one seating position. The Caravan is not quite as long as the Grand Caravan.
ETA: Just did a search on carseat.org on this topic-- seems others have this same issue. I guess where you get the extra inches is by compressing the bench seat? Is that right? I told DH about this, so he will try it again.
THANK YOU so much. I hope, hope, hope this works.
