Lambjam - I don't know if I particularly need the bassinet? I really want a capsule this time, something I wished I had with DD rather than waking her when getting out of the car etc.. Just thought a bassinet would be an extra, unnecessary expense?
Is this a mistake? I've never had a capsule before so I don't know if it's okay to use in this fashion?

Thanks for all your replies .. I've been using the strider plus so I'm somewhat used to pushing a wide pram, and a bulky, heavy fold.. But the donkey is wider than the strider (by a wheel width) and i was worried that extra width would cause problems.
I do love the steering tho, I test drove it in mono and found it sooooo easy to drive with 1 hand!!

Mono: One frame plus covers for bassinet and seat (but because you only have one frame you can only use one at a time, ie bassinet OR seat).
Duo: Two frames plus covers for one bassinet and two seats (because you have two frames you can use one bassinet and one seat at the same time, OR two seats).
Twin: Two frames plus covers for two bassinets and two seats (because you have two frames you can combine these however you like ie two bassinets, one bassinet and one seat, or two seats).
So even if you buy the Mono you'll be buying a bassinet cover. If you want to put two children into the pram you will need two frames, which I would assume is cheaper to buy upfront.

I've Google it - I stand corrected. sorry about that. Wow that's really narrow for a side by side.
I stand by my giant kids wouldn't fit in it long then. My 4 month old would be 8-9kgs already and jasper was over 18kgs before he was 2.

The seats are a bit narrower than the Cameleon, but still quite roomy. DS3 is 3 in November and he'll fit for ages yet, I would guess at least another year (provided he chooses to stay in it that long!). Granted he's an small-average sized child, but that's still a lot of use.

I have just ordered a Valco zee spark duo...same kind of idea - but $1000 less.
Obviously without the bugaboo name though ( and pretty colours!)

Jo7- a friend has brought from baby shop and didn't get taxed. She has brought a Cam and Bee from there.
ScrambledPancakes - I looked at the Vee Spark Duo as well but it's only takes 1 capsule not 2 which didn't work for me having twins. Everything else about it ticked all the boxed for me!

As it is above $1000 you might get taxed at customs in aus. Or you might not.
They are expensive because the quality is second to none. I've owned bugaboos and valcos and I'm always impressed by the buga quality.

When my friend brought her Cam when they first came out she got a limited edition one so paid more than $1000 and wasn't taxed. I don't mind if I do, they wouldn't tax me more than $500 which would still make it cheaper than buying in Australia!
