Tall parents and tall children need umbrella stroller

Hi, I'm new to this board, but hoping for some input.  We normally use a Valco Tri Mode Twin for our two older girls.  Our girls run high 90s in percentiles for height.  So the older one is over 39 inches at her last appointment a year ago.  We bought the Valco when I was driving a truck and space wasn't an issue.  We've now upgraded to a minivan as we have 3 in car seats.  We're going to be taking a road trip later this year and can't give up that much room just for the stroller.  So we're thinking about getting two umbrella strollers.  We're going south, so just going without a sun shade isn't an option.

I've read some reviews on line but the information seems conflicting.  Any suggestions?  I'd prefer not to spend a lot as we are quite happy with our Valco for normal outings.  All other options are secondary to the height issue.  A reclining seat would be nice, but not a deal breaker.  We're used to not having much of a basket on the Valco...so storage isn't a huge priority.

Thanks for any input you can provide.

  • The Chicco Liteway is really tall. I'm 6' and just tried it at the store yesterday. I can push it without having to bend over at all.

  • Thanks ladies. I'll check out these models.
  • We have the Chicco Echo and it works well.  DH is 6'2 and DS is in the 75th percentile for height.
