We have a phil & teds and a zapp xtra - DS now 14 months is still having reflux problems so sleeps much much better int he Zapp due to the bucket seat (rather than the angle the seat of the phil& teds puts him when reclines (main seat) - so he sleeps much longer in the Zapp - BUT we spend a lot of time int he middle of fields etc camping every other weekend witht he dogs at flyball comps etc - so if there something with the air tyres but like the zapp xtra we could look at for this?

In a real ideal world it would be like the phil && teds but with a bucket seat, with a spare seat just incase DD wants to jump in (has odd nap in phil and teds if we are away from the weekend, good place for her to go if it rains etc.... so although highly doubt any doubles with bucket reclining seat for DS in our price range (Also limited space in the car), but are there any singles that could work seeing as DD not likely to need it for long?
thanks so much smile

ooo forgot to say ideally rear facing for DS as he is going thought that clingy stage - also other reason he doesn't fall asleep so well in the P&T !

Britax Vigour 3 and 4 come with air tyres but the + model don't...But they're not the smallest of buggies but lovely to push...Plus the backseat can be adjusted to any angle, not the 3 or 4 on most pushchairs...Face both directions...Most sell for around £50 or less on eBay...Mines going on today hopefully.

Hauck Infinity from ebay. Faces both ways, air tyres at the back like a bugaboo. usually sell very cheaply.
Not sure what the seat type is but mumo75 is selling a rear and front facing three wheeler with air tyres. here

Hauck Infinity is fab, fab, fab!! Was going to sell ours now I have the Bee but dh won't let me as he wants to keep it for 'off-road' hmm.Yes, we had a lascal maxi buggy board on it nicely - ds tucked in under the handle.

Lots of bucket seats - icandy cherry is great... but Infinity cheap second-hand and perfect for you I think.

had a 2nd hand cam and I hated it! lol no idea why just really disliked it - in an ideal world want something that is a 3 wheeler with 3 air/big tyres (for very bumpy fields) faces both ways, with bucket seat and a smaller fold than the cam! lol maybe asking a bit too much?
