Help me pick a pram!

I decided I definitely want a single stroller plus a double since dd is going to be going to preschool in the fall so I won't always have both little ones with me. I already have an old pliko and mac that I like fine so I'm looking for something full sized.

My big requirements are that it have a removeable carrycot plus toddler seat (infant seat adapter is nice but not a deal breaker), 4 decent sized wheels with a suspension that can handle outdoor walking and be easy to take apart/put back together.

Right now I'm looking at the bjcv, uppababy vista and bugaboo frog. I would love a city select but I can't afford the $800+ I would need for all the accessories I want and haven't seen any on cl. I've mainly been hunting cl and consignment shops but could probably swing $500 at the high end for something new that came with everything I need.

I love my uppa baby vista, it's pricey but comes with the bassinet so you don't have to buy it separately, it's got great wheels/suspension

Can't remember how far east you are but I saw this on Indy's craigslist today

I've seen a couple vistas on the Columbus cl that seemed pretty good deals. I'm just a little hesitant because the only uppababy I've seen IRL was an umbrella stroller and I was not impressed at all. I'm pretty particular, like I want to love the baby jogger but the fabrics just seem so cheap to me.

The Uppababy fabrics are so nice. Better than Baby Joggers. I love our Vista. It was my one and only stroller until we got a double recently. I think it meets all of your criteria.

Has anyone ever tried the rumble seat or buggy board on the Vista? Dd isn't a huge stroller rider but it might be nice to have a seat I could just throw on if I need to contain her at say the library.
