My neighbors have a schmancy BOB double stroller - not sure exactly what the model is called, but it's a jogging stroller that I think cost maybe $500 or more (it was a gift to them). We borrowed the stroller to put DS and DD #2 in (DD #1 prefers to walk) when we went to a county fair a few weeks ago. It sort of looks like this, though again, I'm not sure what model they actually have.
That thing was awesome. And - when DD #1 got sluggish - she even sat on the front of it just for the walk back to the car (she sort of sat in the middle towards the front). We rolled over dirt, mud, gravel, up hill and down dale - it was so easy to push, even with all three kids on it.
So - we're going to a fair this weekend - and we want to borrow it again - but I feel slightly weird to ask them again. The first time we borrowed it we said we wanted to "test drive" it to see if we wanted to buy one (which was true).
But those things are $$$ - and we are really trying to cut back on spending. On Craigs List I don't see BOB double jogging strollers. I assume that they are the type of item that show up on CL and disappear two minutes later.
Can I rent a double jogging stroller? I anticipate using one maybe 3-4 times this Fall going to pumpkin patches and stuff. I just don't see spending $500 - $800 on one that we use 3 times.
What do you guys suggest? Anyone have a great double jogging stroller they want to rent to me?
