I have an evenflo from 15 month old, what double stroller can I use with this? Or will I have to buy a new carseat and get a dfferent brand of stroller?I dont know if I could trust buying a used car seat! I know in Canada its rare to come across evenflo double strollers. I would really appreciate your advice and recommendations.

I had a Graco car seat & double stroller. However, before I bought mine, I borrowed my SIL's Kolcraft stroller. I really liked it, but found the Graco stoller at a store & on sale 1st. My oldest 2 are 21 mos apart & the 2nd 2 are 16 mos apart.
I would recommend going to a Babies R Us if you can. Then you can play with the strollers and test it the carrier is compatible. BRU/TRU are very good about things like that!

You should check out the Baby Trend Sit'N'stand stollers. You can purchase from Toy'R'Us a model that comes equipped with two seats, the rear seat is removable for when your 15 month old is older and doesn't necessarily want to sit he can walk, stand or sit in the rear while your youngest rides in the seat up front. You would have to check the websit for Baby Trend to ensure compadibility to Evenflo. I've been looking into this myself and it is compatible with my graco and safety first car seats. There are lots of reviews on the websites. If you have the money though they say you should go with the Joovy Caboose, which comes as a basic model and you add on what you want (ie seat pads, cup holders, extra seat etc). The Baby Trend model I am looking at through Toys'R'Us is approx $270 where the Joovy Caboose is over $500.

Baby trend has great safety ratings and this model happens to be available in Canada. Here's the website and this stroller accepts most infant carseat and carriers. And it can also be used now while your 15 month old is still a baby and later when he gets older. It is good for up to 40 pounds per seat.

You never want to buy a used car seat I believe any car seat would lock into a double stroller. Not sure about getting a used stroller though....

I personally wouldnt trust a used carseat. You never know if its close to giving way or been in a wreck even. Try or Wish I could help more.
