Will 5 child seats fit?

Has anyone tried to fit 5 child seats into an ExpyEL? We have two kids in boosters and two in convertible seats with an infant on the way. I think I'm going to have a tough time getting all these seats into our Odyssey!
Thanks.
Jared

They should fit, but it may suck for mobility.

Three full car seats fit in the middle row and I've had two infant seats in the back row (only three kids, and we're capping it at that). You end up using belts more than clips, but you may be able to get three across the back making it easier to move one middle seat to get into the back.

Never tried three in the back because last time it was considered we had two in infant seats and didn't bother unbuckling the child seat in the mid row, just shoved the smaller ones further back with someone sitting between them.

It would be tight. Three seats across the second row may work. Measure the width of the child seat and measure a expy to see. You can't put a booster in the back seats, at least mine would not fit. The booster base is too wide and you can't buckle the seat belt.

I have 3 kids. We fit two boosters with backs, and a regular child seat in the middle row without any problem. That was on our 2003 Expy. On our 2008 model we got the captains chairs on row 2. The 3rd row holds our two oldest in boosters. The toddler is in one of the captains. The only complaint I have is that you can't remove the headrest on the captains chairs, and I don't like the way the child seats fit. It all depends on what size child seats you have.

Later-

Thanks for the replies. It sounds like I need to go do some testing.
Thanks again.

I couldn't get any booster to fit width wise in the 3rd row. I have the Graco booster without the back.

We use the booster in Berry's post. Two of them. One with the back, one without. They fit in the 3rd row no problem.
