Maclaren daytripper ... good or bad ?

I'm looking for a lightweight stroller to have in the back of my car as a spare. DS is nearly 3 so I'm hoping I'm not going to need it for much longer.

There is one on ebay quite local to me, for £15.

Is this a good price ? and is it worth it ?

they haven't made them for years so it might be quite knackered

you can usually get a new umbrella fold at tesco for about £15

Oh, ok then ... thanks.

It was described as excellent, but I suppose you can never tell with ebay !

They are very old but if it's been preserved in the garage it might be ok.
I would not recommend the tescos one. It doesn't have swivel wheels.
You should b able to get a maclaren volo or triumph on ebay for £20 and under.

make sure you can see the back wheels in the photos - they show the wear
