Does anyone have an extended rear facing car seat that doesn't need isofix? We have the britax dualfix in my car (which I love), but need a second car seat for my H to use. He drives a van, but we also have an old Fiesta which he uses when he doesn't need the van, neither have isofix. Ideally I'd like to get another rear-facing car seat, but we need to be able to secure it with the seatbelt. Does anyone have one they'd recommend?
Also, does anyone know about the safety of putting a rear facing car seat in a van? I presume its the same as having it in the front seat of a car?

We've just bought the Britax 2-way. It's ERF and fits in my Peugeot 206. It isn't isofix so uses the seatbelt, but it does have to be tethered to the front seat to secure it. It's also able to go forward facing, which is a bonus. We got it at the in car safety centre Milton Keynes and they we're brilliant.

we have the dualfix for our car and the joie stages which is belt fitted for my parents car when they have her, it's one of the cheapest rear facing seats but i think it's very good, more roomy than the dual fix xx

Thanks for the replies.
Noodle, I looked at the 2 way when buying the dualfix. I might have another look at it.
WH - I hadn't thought about the depth of the seat in the van, but that does make sense!
EB - I saw a Joie in a car in Lidl's car park today. I hadn't considered it, but will look again. How easy is it to get a child in round the seatbelt? Just from looking at it in the car it looks like you'd have to slide them in between the seatbelt?
