It is possible to buy a Twin Major Elite which is custom made from two single Major Elites, see Twin Maclaren Major Elite and this is narrower (15cm, 6" narrower) than joining two together with these Connector Bars

But the Connector Bars have some distinct disadvantages

  • much less expensive, saves about 25%
  • the weight capacity is still 50kg per seat (not reduced to 25kg per seat)
  • can be split into two single pushchairs when you want
  • can have the footplates at the same level (must be at different levels on the Double Major Elite)
  • improved handle operating position

Warning

This is big 115cm (46"), so do need to think carefully about where you want to go. You won't get this into a shop or through a domestic doorway, you might get it down a school or hospital corridor. Probably not onto a train, bus or in a lift.

There may be sections of pavement where the width is reduced due to a lamp post or other obstacle.

If there is a route you need to travel, e.g. a school run, then we recommend that you walk it with a tape measure so you know that it is wide enough to support all wheels at all times. If it is not then understand how you can detour for example are there lowered kerbs so you can temporarily use the road - and would this be safe with the traffic in this area ?

Can you handle the pushchair with the combined weight of both occupants, especially if there are sloping surfaces ? If you are of slight build yourself who could struggle with an adult in a wheelchair then it may not be suitable. You must be in control at all times.
