I have a 07 Chrysler Town and Country and I would like to fit three seats in the third row. One needs to be rear facing, the other two could forward face. Right now I have a 37lb 5 yr old in a FF Regent, a 32lb 3 yr old in a FF Marathon and a 23lb 20 mo old in a RF Roundabout. and these seats do not come close to fitting in the third row.

Does anyone know if three radians would fit back there? I asked our local carseat tech and he said three seats wouldn't fit in the third row of this van but that he had never installed a Radian before.

You *might* be able to do FF Radian, FF Marathon, RF Roundabout.

If you need to buy new seats, three Radians would probably work, but hopefully we can work something out where you don't need to buy three spendy seats.

There are certain combinations that would probablywork, but you'll likely need all new seats.
3 Radians probably wont do it. even though the seat is the narrowest per se, what happens is that some seats, which are wider overall, can overlap and therefore you can fit 2 larger seats together in a tighter combination than 2 narrower seats..does that make sense?

I am pretty sure you can 2 FFing radians outboard with a RFing Titan in the center. A my ride might also work in the center, which would give you a taller shell and more weight rearfacing. I got that combo to work in my friends caravan, and i think the rear rows are basically the same.

In my caravan I fit 3 seats in the 3rd row for my daycare. I can put 2 of the narrow FF seats that turn into boosters (I don't use them as boosters) and a rear facing seat of any type back there......or I can fit 3 sceneras in just about any configuration. 3 radians would absolutely fit if one was rearfacing.
