Can you gate check a quatro stroller?

The single kind. My in-laws REALLY want us to go to Hawaii with them (after the next child is born) but the only way that would happen is if baby had a seat and I gate checked a stroller. I would have to travel alone with both kids but we would stop on the west coast both ways.

No what I mean is this stroller is "large" (still smaller then my current stroller) so do they give you a hard time with it?

Or in other words can you only gate check umbrella strollers?

I have gate checked my old larger Graco stroller before. And I plan to gate check my double now that I have two.

Ah, okay. Ive never owned an umbrella. I probably should have said that I have gate checked my Graco Quattro.

Re: Can you gate check a quatro stroller?

Great! Thanks for the help. Glad I can use that stroller. I figure if I get that and get an infant seat for the little one we should be good. DS will be 5 by then and so I will just get the carseat vest for him and not worry about his carseat and such. I also like that the Graco stroller is only $150 now, and that saves my $700 stroller that I currently have.

We have never owned a umbrella stroller, they are pointless...lol. Anyhow, yes we always gate checked either our Graco quattro tour or our Graco double stroller.

We have a car seat vest for travel with DD1. It's so convenient to use on vacation, but it's not FAA approved, so you can't use it on the airplane. I recommend packing it in a carry-on bag, so that if your luggage gets lost or delayed, you'll still have it when you get to Hawaii.

Re: Can you gate check a quatro stroller?

I gate checked my quatro (I believe that's what it is) *the graco stroller that goes with the graco seat - part of the travel system*. It was SUPER easy! Just got all the way down the terminal to the door of the plane, folded it down for the guy and walked away - then when I came out the door of the plane it was sitting there opened and ready for me to put DS into!

They were super nice to me - I wasn't even by myself so I figured they'd give me a harder time! (you know like, she has help... why do we have to help?)
