Best holiday pushchair for very large toddler?

DD is 2.7 but very big for her age...she's about the size of a 4 year old (21kg and 104cm).

She doesn't use a puschair much anymore but I think we will need one for holidays this year (when she will be almost 3). We have a BJCM GT but she hates it now. I bought a Joovy Groove for our last holiday and DD likes it but I hate's very hard to push and the brake appears to be for decoration only. Plus DD always looks slumped in the seat.

So, can anyone recommend something relatively lightweight and cheap (happy to buy second hand) that will satisfy both DD and I?

I bought my ICandy raspberry as a holiday pushchair (already had peach 3), it's got a really long seat which is great for DD who is tall for her age. Not sure if the weight goes as high as 21kg but it's pretty sturdy, maybe worth checking with them?

I'd love a Raspberry (I had a Strawberry travel system) but it's more than I want to spend at this stage, given that it won't get much use as I don't expect DD will need a pushchair at all for much longer.

A Mamas and Papas Armadillo might be a good choice. Its great for larger toddlers as the seat is big. Also has a big hood and really easy one hand fold. I have one and have taken it abroad three times.

Second hand Baby Jogger City Mini/City lite/Zip would be ideal.

But her DD hates their BJCM GT...?!

I'd be interested in the BJCM Zip as it looks different from the GT but the other BJCMs are too similar.
