Schwinn bike trailer as a double stroller?

I have a 22 month old daughter and I am expecting my second child in May. I have heard that a Schwinn bike trailer can be used as a double stroller even with an infant (infant seat buckled in, while toddler sits beside). Since we already own the Schwinn (purchased to use for biking and occasional stroller use), I have been considering using it with my infant seat instead of buying a double stroller. Have any of you done this, and if so, did you find that your toddler had enough room to sit? My Graco infant seat seems a little wide to fit in there and leave enough room for my toddler to sit comfortably.



I should add that I don't plan on biking with my newborn, just using the bike trailer as a stroller on the rare occasions that I need one for both kids. I don't plan on using a stroller often, I'd rather have my toddler in our single stroller and my newborn close to me in a sling - plus, that seems like a better workout to me than just pushing them both :)

I have an Instep one and I know a baby seat would not fit in it. Don't know how different the Schwinn is. Have you tried Craig's List or second hand stores for deals on double strollers?
