    Default Ok - recommend me a pram?!

    Please recommend me a pram for baby and toddler for around $500 - $600?
    Toddler weighs approx 14kg's - would love a scooter option too for toddler but will still definately need a seat for him too and for sometime to come as we walk everywhere and only have 1 car at the moment.
    We live remotely and some streets are missing paths - may need a pram that can go offroad but definately nothing too extreme.

    All suggestions appreciated as I better decide soon - baby number 2 will be here in a fortnight eek! Thanks!

    I'm most likely getting a Baby Jogger City Mini GT double (side by side), but it is more expensive than what you've asked for.
    I'll also watch this to see what others say! :-)

    A bit over the budget but if you go to amazon.com you can get a baby jogger city select delivered here. You can then also buy a toddler seat, but in a different transaction, and it's still 300+ cheaper than in Australia

    Inline that can go off road, a Phil and Teds explorer or hammerhead, might but a bit out of your price range but you could get a second hand one for that price. I've had the explorer and it went really well off road (we lived in a small closed mining town in the desert).

    Touché! Look at valco, I'm pretty sure they make a good three wheeler pram that you can attach a toddler seat to

    Would love to get a BJCS but cannot justify the cost. And they do look a bit more fragile for the rough roads/surfaces.

    I can get a PT explorer for around $650 with double kit so about $700 when I add shipping. Do like the PT alot! Will my toddler and bub be comfortable - not too squished?
