Double Stroller for Twins - Recommenations

Ideally under $400, hopefully fit two newborns in or out of car seats (probably different brands of seats if the stroller won't accommodate newborns in the actual stroller), has to fold easily and small enough to fit in a small sedan trunk, and probably a side by side stroller - but would have to be narrow. It can be from the US or Canada.

I still have my old stroller, which I love, and if I found a great stroller that wouldn't fit newborns I could make due with the single until the twins are old enough. I'll spend a lot of time walking my daughter to and from school and I would like to have a double for that, but still plan to use my single stroller we need the car for errands and stuff.

One stroller we have in min is the Zooper Tango which is only $200 on clearance, 30" wide, and it fits in our trunk while still fitting the hockey bag and more on top. The other is the Mountain Buggy Duet - I haven't looked at this stroller in person yet, and it's much more than I want to spend, but I love the 25" width.

I would love to hear from anyone who has experience with either stroller, and what double you have and why you love it!

I have a Zooper Tango - the '08 version & we frequently used the accessories when our twins rode in it. The canopy is AMAZING! The rain cover & foot muff were both super user friendly & worked great. But, I wish I would have chosen an Indi Twin Bumbleride instead. The Zooper did not travel well through thick mulch walking trails or the dirt paths at our zoo.

Re: Double Stroller for Twins - Recommenations

Definitely a Baby Trend double snap 'n go for the newborn stage. Now that we're out of bucket car seats, the only stroller we have for our twins is a Schwinn Free Wheeler like this http://www.healthchecksystems.com/sc...e_stroller.htm and we love it! No complaints!

BJCM double! It pushes/turns better than either single stroller I have (chicco and cybex). I used a Snuzzler and the seat fully reclined when DD2 was teeny tiny and that worked fine.

Ditto! It's amazing. It's my 7th baby (behind my kids and mini van. hahaha I'm such a mom!)

Re: Double Stroller for Twins - Recommenations

You mentioned you will have two different brand bucket seats. I'm surprised no one has mentioned that most of these brands will require you to purchase additional adaptors for each brand so you can use the bucket seats with the stroller. Like the city mini brand. They were around $50 or $60 in the store, perhaps can be found for cheaper online (I didn't look as we ruled it out anyway). But something to keep in mind!
