    Favorite Aton-compatible stroller?

    I know that the list of "official" Aton-compatible strollers from Regal Lager isn't inclusive of all the ones that the Aton actually can work with. I also know that just because a stroller is compatible with maxi cosi does not mean it is necessarily compatible with the Aton. (I got burned by a Kolcraft stroller.)

    So, what I am looking for is recommendations for strollers that are aton-compatible -- like "click in and can lift the entire stroller using the handle of the car seat" compatible -- not just "oh you can kinda balance it and then use the strap thing and it sorta works" compatible.

    I am particularly interested in doubles as well, since we plan to have a second child at some point.

    Thanks! I actually already have a City Mini and I love most things about it. The small/difficult to access storage basket is starting to try my patience this winter, though, which is why I'm curious about other options.

    City Select can become a double and the adapter is the same as the other BJ strollers. Listed in instructions as Cybex compatible. I have a Versa so it uses the same adapter it just can't become a double.
    Realllllly nice basket that's easy to access since there's no stroller seat to work around when its being used as a travel system.

    You can add the Vista rumbleseat to the Versa to make it a double.

    It attaches to the Versa frame the same way it attaches to the Vista frame. Not "official" since Uppa makes the rumbleseat and BJ certainly won't endorse using another companies seat on their stroller, but I can tell you it is quite popular for a lot of ladies in a few stroller boards I belong to.

    (I don't think Kolcraft strollers are compatible, truly, with most seats. European brands with actual adaptors will be more truly compatible...)

    Re: Favorite Aton-compatible stroller?

    I bought (it was pretty cheap) an official one. The Ruby, I think? It's for 1 child.
    It was a 3 YO model, and my carseat was new.

    It was one hundred something dollars.
    Seatbelt and 59" (9 YO)
    Harmony Youth (8 YO)/Clek Olli (6YO)
    Harmony Dreamtime (5 YO)
    Clek Fllo (3 YO, RF)/Graco 40 (15 months)
    + 2 Recaro Performance boosters in spare car

    Whoa! This changes everything! I LOVE the Versa, but we went with the mini because the Versa was $400 at the time. Now it's $260 on Amazon, so if it has the capacity to take the rumbleseat down the road, it's definitely a contender!

    I have the Versa with Rumbleseat and love it. I need to take pics and post them. Not tippy at all and really sturdy. It's a quick on and off too. Feel free to let me know if you want more info. It's a perfect part time double for me and it's my car stroller. I have a BOB Duallie for walks.
