    Default Last pram thread by me - I promise...

    After picking everyones brains all weekend about prams I am down to 3 that I am pretty happy with

    1. Bebe Rverse $500ish
    2. BJCS $900ish
    3. Valco Rebel Q Air $700ish

    Main features want and all prams have
    -reversible
    -option for 2nd seat

    Things I would like
    -bassinet/seat in one - bebe, valco
    -foam filled/air tyres - BJCS, valco

    Not overly worried about size/weight of each pram.

    I live in the country and will be using pram on a rail trail and unsealed road but also using it in Melbourne alot and shops etc.

    Oh and mountain buggy/bugaboo are both out.

    So what do I get?

    I have to say bjcs just because I love mine so much. I've used it occasionally off road on gravel and didn't have any probs with it.
    I googled bebe rverse and it looks really good for the price ane comes with accessories. Wasn't sure about the basket though. I can fit 2 boxes of nappies in the basket of my city select.

    not sure about basket, i think it is a little smaller?

    did u get the bassinet for the bjcs or just use the seat? I am probably buying a capsule anyway?

    I didn't get it til DS was 5 months old so just got the seat. He was sitting independantly by that age anyway.
    For number 2 I'll use it with the unity capsule. If I had the extra money or had my time again I'd get the maxi cosi because it clicks directly into the adaptor. With the unity it sits in/on the adaptor and you use a strap over the top to secure it.

    I didn't have it but I voted Rebel Q air. I like how the seat can lay flat. I really dislike the bucket seats and how the child seems to always be in the same position.

    I know someone who has this pram and lives on a pram. In 12months it is worn but it has had a hard life I think. It still works ok, just a few cosmetic things.

    In reality whatever you get you will buy a stroller in 6-12months.
