Middle seat

Hey guys, this might sounds stupid but does anyone have any info on possibly using the middle console spot for a kids seat???

Ya know I'm glad I'm not the only one that has thought about this :-) my son sits in passenger seat and my little girl always wants to ride in the back and I'm not comfortable with that so a lot of times she will ride on the console. Even with blankets and a pillow it's still not very comfortable.

I dont have any pics of the back of it (how i have it mounted) but i do have pics of it in the rhino, the seat isnt in my rhino right now as i took it out to clean the machine before putting it away for the winter..but if you want a general pic i can dig one up, will that work?

he is 4 now, but has been in a seat in the rhino since 6 months (rear facing) he climbs into it all by himself and waits for us...but he wont climb into it if the keys are in the ignition, he asks us to take them out. He used to take 3 hr naps in there, but last summer he only napped for about 1/2 hr once. It does make it enjoyable when the whole family can go, we do a lot of camping in the summer and are usually gone on the rhino all day.

it is a little tighter in the front seats, so if you are a bigger person, will be really tight. but i was also just thinking, you could make up some sort of base and bolt it to the doghouse (or whatever you want to call it), that might work also, the carseat has a harness in it already, so its just a matter of making the seat secure. There is 3 of us in our group that do this, never had any issues, of course we are all the last in line. we have gone through mud like this, i just dont try as hard, if i spin i dont take a second run at it, more or less, but the kid has gotten muddy before.

used heavy duty hoseclamps, each seat is designed differently, but for this one it lines up with the rollbar and some ho;es that were on the seat. You could also bolt it to the doghouse somehow, the way i figured it out was put the seat where i wanted it and looked to see if anything lined up, i had to take the base off it to make a bit more room, but it is very secure in there. Personally i wouldnt use a seat that you have in your vehicle, cause the chances of it getting dirty are pretty high.
