Babyseat for Van

    Hi all,

    I have a 2018 citroen dispatch that I need to get a baby seat for. Its to fit a 2.5 year old.

    Done some googling and haven't found anything showing a compatible seat.

    Been to a couple of babyshops and they either hadnt anything suitable (Isofix only in store ) or when they tried to fit a seat they just weren't fitting right and had a bit too much movement.

    It's not for the main mode of transport. we've just been caught short recently a couple of times only having herselfs car with the baby seat.

    Any help appreciated

    Post a couple of wanted ads for free on Gumtree and Adverts.IE outlining what you're looking for. It's likely you'll get a couple of replies that way.

    Thanks for that hadn't thought of it.

    Ive seen a couple of car seats in the same type van as mine but they didn't seem a proper fit to me at all. They were far looser fitting than the couple I've had trial fitted where the shops weren't happy.

    Gonna try another place during the week that have a better selection but would love to hear of something that definetly fits and is sturdy

    I assume you don’t have isofox?

    problem is most stuff now doesn’t have ELR seatbelts that ratchet, now that isofix is common they don’t bother.

    Correct, no ISO fix in the van.
