I love my city mini double.
Light for a double pram, easy to fold, fits through a standard doorway, easy to maneuver.

side by side, for sure if thats your gap... i have a one behind with a 14 month gap and would have much preferred a side by side

I've got a valco twin (an older model). I love it for walking and shopping etc, plus it is really steady even with different weights - have a big 3yo and a 4mo) but it is quite heavy to lift in and out of the car and just squeezes through standard doorways.
Also you need a pretty big boot to fit it in, it just squeezes in mine
If you walk a lot from home, and can get a cheap second hand one I'd definitely suggest it.. Otherwise probably not unless you're feeling super strong. Lol

My bubs will be 16 months apart when #2 arrives in May. I've decided on a side by side despite already having a strider that I could fit a 2nd seat to. I don't like how low the 2nd seat is on the strider (and a lot of other prams that have similar seat placement).

I've got an 18mth difference so both still my bubba's - much prefer side by side.
Yes they are bigger, but personally I really dislike one child being shoved underneath down close to the ground, staring at the back of the pram.
I've got the Bugaboo Donkey, which fits through standard doorways. I like that I can easily convert it back to single if I'm wearing DS2 & only pushing DS1.
It does take up a lot of boot space though.

I have ended up buying the steelcraft agile twin. To me it's very similar to the baby jogger and the MB duet...but with a more reasonable price tag. Oh and it will fit the capsule I already own so that was a big plus for me personally.
Obviously I haven't used it with kids yet, but it seemed to steer easily (even one handed if needed), not too wide, easy to fold and fairly light.

I have four kids and between them there was a 18 month gap.
I had a side by side (two different brands) and hated both of them. They are really annoying and can't push them through some check outs. And for school run they didn't fit through the school side gate. I found it harder to push the heavier they got.
I have a tandem pram and I love it. It's easy to steer and fit through tight spaces. Fits in my normal size boot. I now push my 2 year old and 4 year old with my 5 year old on the skateboard. My 5 year can sit in the seats. And there is a huge basket underneath and both seats have a tray which is great for snacks. (We walk to and from school)
I love my tandem
