The stroller is ideal for your child and once he outgrows the infant car seat, he can continue to use the stroller for at least another year or two. Graco strollers are strong enough to withstand your child’s weight and this Roadmaster Jogger design will even allow you to use the stroller as a daily rider and a jogger for when you go to the park. It certainly pays for itself with the convenience it offers.
How much should you pay for Graco Roadmaster Jogger?
If you’re looking to get the Graco RoadMaster for your family, you’ll be happy to know that the stroller is currently available on popular online stores for about $299, and less on sites that have the stroller on sale. Some popular sites were discounting the stroller up to 22% at the time of writing this review. Not every site offer the complete color range, so you may shop around if you need to buy a specific color.
My research of customer feedback online show they are generally happy with the product. Some users have however mentioned that they found it slightly hard to maneuver, or steer the Graco Roadmaster with heavier children. But that is to be expected, especially if the child is either nearing the weight capacity or has already passed it.
Another issue is that the mesh back of the seat, although good for ventilation, it is said to be thin, and need care to avoid getting torn.
Aside from these minor complaints, the stroller has been reported to perform as expected, which made parents feel like the almost $300 price tag was well worth it.
A great item for a baby shower or for yourself, the Graco RoadMaster Travel System is the only one you will need for the first few years of your child’s life. After all, nothing can compare to the ease and comfort of your child especially during his early years.
