Yes and no.

I have discovered it's big flaw...it's big and hard to get in and out of my van. I was expecting this stroller to be the ONE...for trips to the ped, to the store, zoo trips, etc. It'll be great for some of those things. BUT there is no way it's going to work for quick in and out trips. I have another stroller that's 30+ lbs but something about this one makes it so darn hard to get in and out of my van. I think because when folded it's awkward to get a decent hold on it. I can't imagine picking it up when it's full of snow. So I'm looking into a second very lightweight side by side.

That being said, I don't regret getting it. It's fabulous for walks and as I needed the 3rd seat for my toddler, there was only one other option.

YES!
While I will agree it is hefty, I find it well worth dealing with the weight. It is solid and I can't imagine my twins bouncing around and my 5 year old climbing in and out of anything else and it taking the abuse. I have used it in the snow and it is sweeeeeeeeet!! It cuts right through with no wheels sticking/getting caught at all. I have an E350 so I need to hoist this bad boy up pretty high and I STILL lurve it to pieces. Yes, be warned it is heavier than the ones you see at TRU and such, but the reason for that is the quality. Any who, that's my .02.

When you fold it you need to grab it up high, just below the knuckle, being sure to grab both bars. I then asueeze it into my palms and lift it up and in. Some days when I am extra tired I use my knee to help lift it high enough. I am driving an E350 though and those are SUPER high up.

I have one pic of it all loaded up with 3, the Valco that is. No shots of the back. It's : out and is in the back of my van at the moment, otherwise I'd run out and snap a pic.

Valco for 3


OhMeOhMy - I think I understand what you're talking about. I need to take the stroller out of my van soon. Part of the problem is I'm 5'1" on a good day, it's a lot of stroller for a short person.

A question for the Valco Twin owners...
Do you need the car seat attachments for this one, or do the car seats rest on the lap bar? I think the attachment they sell is only for the Valco single?
We are contemplating this stroller as well, but I would like one that is car seat compatible for the early months.

We have the MBUD, too! I love it! I got the brown dots one. I wish we had gotten it sooner. http://strollers.baby-gaga.com/mount...e/review2.html

You need carseat attachments. The downside to the Valco is that only one infant carrier can ride at a time, and none with the toddler seat attached. I "highly" recommend a double snap n go for the early days, you won't regret it.
