<p>We need to get a second car seat for DD who is 18mo.  It will go in a relative's mini van and occasionally, our vehicles.  Her current seat is a Britax Advocate.  I have heard good things about the True Fit and also the Complete Air. . .  I need ease of installation and ERF capabilities. Any recs or input on these two options? </p>

<p>What is your budget?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You could do a Scenera.  Most likely it'll last you to around 3 rfing unless your kiddo has a super long torso.  And at right around $50 it's really budget friendly.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I own a CA and LOVE it.  You'll get more rfing time out of it then your britax.  For easier installation, get the one with the base. </p>

<p>I don't have a strict budget for this purchase, but it is a factor in my decision. Ease of installation RF is a big plus since this seat will have to be moved.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>The CA has a base?  Like an infant seat?  I was hoping to compare models on their site, but couldn't find that option.  </p>
<p> </p>
<p>Is there a good post comparing CA models or comparing CA to Truefit?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks!</p>

<p>No, not like an infant seat.  Just a base to adjust the recline (like your britax has).  The LX has the base to adjust recline.  The other models don't (mine doesn't, and I personally don't find it ahrd to install).<br><br>

<p>Darn.  I was getting excited for a bit.  The thought of a convertible with a base that could be moved as easily as an infant seat with multiple bases sounds very appealing. ;-)</p>
<p> </p>
<p>So Is the easiest to install the true fit?  which model?</p>

<p>i don't like the locking clips of the tf, but do get a solid fit.   one could do latch if you have it..  i do agree, a seat with a recline at the base (which the tf has) makes it easier to get a good angle.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>i have a tf with the rebound bar and don't have too much of an issue adjusting the straps.  i think those without thr bar do.</p>

<p>I have a TF and the RF lockoffs are my favorite part of the seat!  They are sooooooo easy to get a tight install with which I need in the 3rd row of my Mazda 5.  I do however hate the harness and the buried adjuster...</p>
