I remember somebody saying they had bought one off E Bay.

I was going to bid on one and noticed the buggy that they are showing the raincover on is an older model.

I have a silver framed one with funny bendy pieces on the other side of the handles.

Was worried the rain cover might not fit because of them.

Did you have the newer model? If so,was the rain cover ok?

It was me!!
I have the new louis blue one and it fits ok, DD1's head does hit it when its fold up IYKWIM, but when its down it fine, also it stays on when you fold it...

Me, I bought one off ebay, and yes I do have the new model. The handles are no problem and I've no complaints about the cover except that the clips were stiff and I broke my thumbnail off trying to fit it! I've just left it on there and folded it up with the buggy so I don't yet know how easy it will be to get off again. A job for dh I think.
