side by side double stroller - anybody have?

I'm looking for a side by side double stroller.

I already have a britax b -ready but the kids don't like being top and bottom - as one of them can't see anything.

now i'm on the hunt for a double!

does anybody have recommendations? warnings?

does anybody have one laying around that they want to offload?

Not sure if you have something specific in mind, but I use a Thule bike trailer as a stroller for my two boys. It has side-by-side seating.

It's super easy to push, handles well and has no issues with snow in the winter. It's a little big so we don't take it on transit and avoid bringing it in smaller stores. If we have to leave it outside we lock it to a bike ring. Folds up nicely at daycare and it fits easily in our vehicle.

If you’re able to pick something up from the states, look up the Zoe double stroller. Very good reviews and on sale right now. May return within 1 year (US of course).

Test drive the bugaboo donkey. Amazing side by side stroller.

i thought about this, because i was also looking for a bike trailer...but then realized this is bigger than most doorways...whereas a double stroller is about 29.5" wide

Good luck navigating a side by side unless you're outdoors in uncrowded spaces!

We have a b-ready and it's hard to navigate in stores. As a result we generally do not use a stroller.

We also have a double chariot but we use that exclusively for biking/running.

If we are going to be out and about in the city, I just wear one kid in a carrier and make the other walk.

If you're going to use the stroller indoors, my recommendation is to get a stadium seating double stroller which will solve the issue by letting both kids see.

Easier to navigate in stores than a side by side stroller.

yes we have the britax b-ready...but i find the bottom seat very awkward for any of the kids to sit in...

which is why i started considering the side by side...

our primary locations are the major grocery stores, walmart and the mall...which i think all of them are sufficient to navigate through on nonbusy days

By stadium seating I meant something like the uppababy Vista or the babbyjogher City select.

We had a bumbleride indy twin.

Liked it. Still fit through a standard door.

Had this conversation so many times and frankly it's starting to piss me off.

Uppababy makes the only prams worth strolling. Anyone who says otherwise, come at me.
