    Double Stroller help

    Ok, it took me a long time to finally find a stroller that worked well for me for DS so I figure I should go ahead & start the search for a double since DH & are TTC#2. If DH & I are successful this month we'd have #2 just before #1 turns 2.

    Here are my requirements. I am one handed so these are a MUST!

    Seat reclines by use of a bar (not a bungee or buckle strap. I can't do those one handed w/ out a child in the stroller so obviously won't be able to w/ a child in it).

    Lightweight

    (The first 2 listed are the 2 most important)

    Easy fold

    Folds as compact as possible

    reasonably priced (preferably no more then $200)

    Ty everyone for your help.

    Easy to get toddler in & out.

    The Graco Double Quattro tour has most everything you want. But I think it weighs 37 lbs. Cost is $230. The Evenflo take me too is great for the toddler to get in and out, I think it has bars instead of straps, one hand fold. I think that ond would work well!

    Re: Double Stroller help

    I have a Inglesina Twin Swift stroller that I bought here from Arly1983. I totally love it and it works great for Karley and the little girl that I babysit. The seats do recline. The seat back is a metal support. The recline is two levers on each side of the seat. The recline goes way back. It also folds nice and small since it is a umbrella type stroller. There are two baskets on the back and I have taken it to Walmart and used it when picking up a few groceries. They are under $200 and I have been seeing tons of 2006 models new on ebay. Hope this helps. Good luck in your search.

    Re: Double Stroller help

    IF you're wanting under $200 your best bet is to probably find one of the higher end ones used. I also have the quattro tour duo that I love but it is HUGE, I think I'm going to have to buy a van just so I can grocery shop again.
    I'm not a huge fan of any evenflo strollers, I had the take me too for all of a day and hated it so much I took it back. If I were to go with a lower end stroller I would probably go with the jeep tandem before I got an evenflo. I would go to your local baby store and check out double strollers and find one you like then start watching craigslist and ebay and see if you could find one that way.

    I sell both the Jeep and the Evenflo. The Jeep has had a lot more issues. I usually hate most Evenflo stuff, but the take me too is nice. I have sold a ton, with very few issues. Don't go for the $90 model though, that one sucks. Get the $150 model. The wheels are even different.

    That could be it then, I had the cheap walmart version. I thought the cititour looked really nice but after my experience with the take me too I didn't even bother trying it.
