Car seats, double cab, and regrets?
I posted this on another forum to get some opinions, so I figured I would head here and see what everyone's thoughts are. I'll keep it short. I purchased a 16 Tundra SR5 DC in October 2015 to replace my AC Tacoma that really wouldn't accommodate my future son's car seat. Fast forward to today, and he's now in a convertible seat (Bitrax...still rear facing), and it takes up a big portion of the back seat in the middle (it's actually sticking out in between the front seats a bit. My wife wants a second, and while we're not expecting yet, I foresee that possibility, and am starting to wonder if a crewmax would be a better option. We do have a 4runner that has a bit more space as well.
I'm just hesitant on two fronts:
A. I do like having the 6.5' bed.
B. I'm 14 months in on my payments paying $120 more each month on a 48 month loan, so I'm expecting to pay off in well under the 4 year mark. I don't want to take a hit, and I really wouldn't like hitting the reset button on my loan.
So, I know two car seats are doable in a double cab, but is "doable" worth saving the money over? That's the big question.
Did anyone ever go from a DC to a CM and actually regret it?
