baby trend double sit and stand?

i'm having the hardest time trying to find a double stroller that isn't outrageous, that fits my baby trend car seat...

does anyone have the baby trend double sit and stand? if so can i get some feedback on what you think?

mostly wondering if it'll fit in my nissan sentra's trunk? and if others like it ok....thanks!

I have one.

Pros: folds flat, relatively light for a double, not crazy heavy, easy to get kids in and out of

Cons: steers much like a cement block (ha!), and footboard on front has to be removed when folding flat

Overall, for the price, we are very happy with it.

We have one and love it. The jump seat area is much bigger than the Joovy ones. It steers relatively well for a double stroller, I've pushed much worse. We don't have to remove the footboard to fold ours flat. Maybe it's a different model than veveland has? The kid's snack tray also folds in to make it smaller when it's folded. It fits fine in the tiny trunk of our Toyota Fusion. It's hardly bigger than our single stroller when it's folded up.

Re: baby trend double sit and stand?

We have one as well. It weighs about the same as our Graco single stroller and takes up about half of the trunk of my Impala. We don't have to remove a footboard (I don't know if it's even possible without unscrewing something), but we do fold down the front snack tray when it's being stored to make it fit more easily in the trunk.

The one disappointment we've had and would probably have with most strollers is that the wheels are not rubber but more like a foam material, unlike our ancient Graco stroller that had tough-looking tires that would have outlasted the actual stroller. We already have one wheel that is crooked after only about a year and a half, probably from getting scrunched in the trunk without properly aligning the wheels.

We have one and like it. We got ours off Craigslist for $80 and it was well worth it. As PP said, it is hard to steer. But I guess that is to be expected with how long it is. All in all, I'm glad we have it.
