DC3 due imminently. We have an Audi A3 an won't be able to get them all in as the oldest will only be 3 1/2 and he's a wee one.
Really don't want to have to move to an SUV/MPV/aircraft carrier style thing. Seriously considering a multimac - does anyone rate it?

Thanks!

Someone from MM emailed me back straight away last night and the narrowest 4 seater is 10mm too wide for my car sad

I really don't know what to do.

My choices are:

1) try and find a 3rd carseat to fit inbetween the 2 I already have and carry a 4th child in the front seat

2) get a 3 seater MM and carry 4th child in the front

3) buy a bigger car to fit a 4 seater then 9yr old ds can sometimes get a lift to school grin.

Might go and start a thread asking for votes!!

We have used a 3 seater Multimac for the last three years in both our VW Golf and 1973 VW Campervan. It has been fantastic for our three boys. We have now bought a modern van and no longer need the MM so are looking to sell it on. If you are interested let me know and we can arrange for you to come and have a look.

Does anyone on here have a minimac baby seat for the multimac they are looking to sell? Baby due January 2013 so trying to find a second hand one to go in our multimac in time for arrival. Please message me if you have one you are interested in selling. Thanks in advance.

Hi,
We are selling a 4 seater multi mac & mini mac baby seat from Northern Ireland.

It has been a brilliant investment and meant we didn't have to change our car.

Our children are 5, 4 and 3 years old. We've had it for 3 years. We are moving abroad and that is the only reason we are selling it.

We are in the Republic and may be interested in your Multimac if it's still available.

Hi

We are also selling a 4 seater multi mac & mini mac baby seat (Surrey) as we are moving to America in a few month's time.
We have been using it in Golf (company car and no problem with insurance), A4 and bmw320d.
We've had it for 2.5 years. It is quite expensive new ( but less so than a bigger family car!) and we have been very happy with it.
We have 3 girls aged 9, 6 and 3. It is very convenient to be able to give a lift to a friend and share lifts for parties. Friends think it is cool...
Let me know if this is of interest.

Hi, We might be interested in buying one. We also have a golf and 2 boys but often want to give lifts to other children. Is it still available?

Hi
It is probably too late but just in case. We are relocating to the US in April and I would like to sell our Multimac 4 seater (with baby seat as well) and 4 headrests. If you are interested, please let me know.
Thanks

laurencej Fri 18-Jan-13 21:23:38

Hi,
Does anyone have a multimac &/or minimac for sale?? Ideally in Ireland but open to ones for sale in the Uk!!...

Daffodilly Sat 09-Feb-13 20:59:36

laurencej - is your multimac still for sale? We may be interested as we are considering this option at the moment for our car.

I have a four-seated multimac I'm looking to sell. Had twins then another 2yrs later, that was three years who and we've decided not to go for number 4! They can all sit in boosters across the back now. There's a Mini mac as well plus two headrests. Merseyside area

amandarini11 Tue 05-Nov-13 14:43:14

Hi Neenz, do you still have your multimac for sale ? I'm expecting baby number 4 and have just swapped my 7 seater people carrier for a 5 seat estate :-(. Looking forward to your reply

Thesnellies Mon 18-Nov-13 20:24:34

I've just listed our 4 seater multimac 1320 with babyseat on ebay. It has been really great and allowed us to keep our estate for 4 more years but the car has now died and been replaced with a 7 seater. Sad to see the multimac go.

Mummyof3b3g Wed 09-Apr-14 11:44:36

Hi does anyone have Multimac 1200 or 1260 for sale will travel to pick up my email is billynclare@hotmail.co.uk thanks. Clare

Hello, i am also searching for a MM 3 or 4 seater of any size, don't need minimac as will put the babies in proper car seats, i am having baby number 6 all boys and only got a big 7 seater, next car size up is a bus hmm

BethC1 Sun 25-May-14 22:15:38

Not sure if any of you are still looking but we have a multimac 1000, 3- seater to sell. It comes with a minimac baby seat, two 'tommy' headrests for bigger children (22-36kg) and 1 YLVA headrest for smaller children (9-22kg). We've had it for around 3 years and had it fitted in our VW campervan. We haven't used it as our only seat, but it allowed us to convert to a 7-seater when we were travelling with the grandparents. The minimac has hardly been used as by the time the seat was delivered our youngest was pretty much too small for it and was able to sit forward facing which she preferred. Our eldest are now 13 and 12 and the seat really is too small for them to travel in any comfort.
The seat is in good condition. One of the harness tightening straps is a little frayed but still works fine. Happy to supply photos on request.

Happy to answer questions about the seat even if you're not interested in buying ours!

Hi Beth, Can i ask what sort of price you are looking for? and where abouts in the country are you?
