Mountain Buggy Duet V3: Can older carrycots be fitted on the newer frame?

Dominik • 18 May 2023

Hello everyone,

I have question :)

I bought the Mountain Buggy Duet 3.0 . Recently I bought two second hand carry cots for that model. When I checked on the carrycots it actually says ‘MB1 -c5 COMPATIBLE WITH MB DUET STROLLER’

Question 1 - the carry cots are for mountain buggy 1.0 ?
Question 2 - if they are, can I somehow put them in my mountain buggy 3.0 ?

Need your advice asap .
Suggest me what to do, I don’t want to loose money.

Thank you

Hi, Dominik,

I don't know these numbers by heart, and you would probably do better to ask Mountain Buggy's customer service about the product numbers and their exact model. In any case, there is a visual different - for the older V1 carrycots, they are larger, less rounded on the edges, and will only fit the V1 model, yeah.

The newer, V2 & V3 fitting carrycot, are rounded and convertible to a parent-facing seat of sorts. I don't think you can put the older ones on your newer MB, but definitely check with the customer service of MB's to get an official statement and potential parts availability to put them on if, by any chance, that could be done.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
