We rented a dodge Caravan for the week for a trip and I don't know where to put the carseat! I put in in the very back on the driver's side but now I am unsure. Help!

I've always liked having the kids close at hand, particularly on long trips. As babies, I had them immediately behind us in the captain's chair that I'd moved to the middle (I think most current vans have this option). That way I could hand things back easily. Recently the kids have moved to the very back at their request, and it's kind of nice to have the ability to place other adults in the middle seats, but they're 2 & 4, and keep each other occupied back there. As babies, I definitely prefer the mid-section.

Wherever you get the best fit, in either the 2nd or 3rd row, center or outboard.

my mom has a caravan and we put PJ behind me in the second seat, we can also pull out the 3rd seat and put it where the second seat goes and he rides in the middle, but him and Cathryn started to get into space issues, so now she rides in the back in the 3rd seat.....

We have a Caravan and the car seat is located behind the passanger seat. We have two bench seats (no captain's chairs in the back). When we load into my ILs minivan, we put the carseat on the Captain's chair behind the passanger seat. Ds#1, who is in a booster that is easily movable, can choose where to sit, but usually wants to be in the way back Grown-ups in the front and whatever seats are left :
