Do I really need a double buggy for nb and walking toddler?

Hi. I'm getting in a tizz. DD1 will be 29 mths when DC2 arrives in March. She doesn't always like going in her current buggy (a simple OBaby stroller) and often ends up walking. We only do quite short walks into town anyway.
Was planning to just use a sling for DC2 and let DD1 walk or go in her buggy - then buy a better single with a buggy board for when DC1 is bigger.
Do you think I really need to invest in a double if my toddler's unlikely to go in it anyway? Or is she still too young to walk/buggy board?
If I should get a double - which one? Our house is compact and a side-by-side wouldn't fit through the front door.
Or if I should just get a better single (like a Bugaboo) for the new baby plus buggy board - which one?
Any help or shared experiences very gratefully received!!

In my experience a lot depends on the older child ie how tired they get and how quickly, if they stil nap, if they actually like to walk a lot. I've had one I couldn't get in the pushchair and one who didn't walk till 20 months who still at 3.5yrs likes to go in it on occasion when tired because he hasn't fully dropped his nap. There are 22 months between each of my 3 children...
