Hi all,
Does anyone have a Bugaboo Donkey? What do you think of it? Going to look at one in the morning and would love to hear the good and bad about it. Also looking at the Mountain Buggy Duet just in case the Donkey doesnt fit in the car.
I currently have the BJSC and cant stand it.
Thanks heaps

I have one, it's quite lArge and takes up alot of boot space.

It's great to steer and push around, at the moment I have it in single mode so have the basket on, it's great to put my bag in for easy access. I also have the snack tray for DS so his drink bottle and food can sit in front of him.

Have had a play with one and to me it makes no sense having such a wide single. It is nice to push but I am sorry I can't see why they didn't make it to move from a standard single to double? I'd rather have the basket underneath than beside the baby.
I do love the look of it as a double. It has come down in price quite considerably so that is a positive.

I have one and I love it! It's an awesome pram, I love being able to configure it depending on which kids I have with me. It's easy to push, very sturdy and easy to use. I have a cameleon too and in single mode the donkey is the same size.  

I have a mb duo too and that's a great pram aswell, it's the same width as the donkey in duo mode but doesn't steer quite as well.  The mb is now my bush bash pram for around our property. Mb are great prams though.

I bought the donkey because I was carting around my mb duo and cammy and I was getting sick of it. I'm very happy with my purchase.

That's interesting as it seemed quite a lot wider than other single prams in the shop. Is the Cameleon a wide pram or does the donkey have narrow seat?

The donkey has a narrower seat stbg. I think the cameleon is pretty standard size, I've never had issues fitting anywhere with it or donkey mono.
