Please help! Rear facing pushchair for twins......again!

Sorry, I know I keep posting but I am totally stuck.
I am expecting twins (have a toddler who'll prob need a buggy board, but that's by the by..)
Rear facing (till toddlerhood) is really important to me if possible.... if not, well...
Bugaboo donkey was looking good (only 74cm wide) but is starting to seem prohibitively expensive... It costs more than our car!
Equally, like the found of the Stroll air my duo, but can't seem to find out where to actually try and buy it! I know there's a Facebook page - I don't do Facebook.
I don't care if its side by side or tandem... But I would prefer something that's not too much of a beast. 74cm or so is probably the limit?
Does such a pushchair exist?
If not, what are the best rear facing for newborns then forward facing...? Mountain buggy duet?

im not sure if both seats can be rear facing but some of the ladies on a parenting fb page im on swear that the oyster max is the best double buggy ever. three have now sold the donkey for the oyster max and not looked back.

Had a quick look at the Oyster... Looks great but I def don't think you could have a buggy board on it...

baby jogger city select. both seats can face you and it will take a buggy board with the handle extended.
it will be heavy though i doubt you will find any double loaded with twins and a toddler that is light.
i love mine.

Have you seen the brevi ovo twin? I've never seen one irl but always been curious as the front seat isn't as directly over the front wheels as it is on the select. There's also the kolcraft contours lite that you can get off ebay and amazon usa, not at all sure on quality or newborn suitability there though except it kinda looks good...

The Casual Play S-Twinner is due in the UK soon (if its not already here). I bet you can get a buggy board on the back of that with both children facing you?
I am not sure if you can still use a Buggy board on the BJCS if the seats are reclined (ie 6 month plus mode) or even with two carrycots on?
I assume you have discounted the Joovy Big Caboose because of having to use car seats for the first 6 months?
An Oyster board wont fit onto the Oyster Max with two seats and I wouldnt recommend it for twins anyway because of the slight recline on the second seat.
