First of all, did you ever expect strollers to require so much planning?
We know, they’re confusing, and there is definitely a learning curve — we hope this helps! Check out more of our Learning Centre articles for our reviews on all kinds of baby gear like more strollers, playards, and car seats.
Included with your VISTA V2 purchase & goes on the top of the stroller. No adapters are required to use this seat on its own. The maximum weight limit on the toddler seat is 50 lbs. We love that the V2 not only comes with the toddler seat but also a rain shield!
This is an additional seat that is sold separately to turn your VISTA V2 into a double stroller. The RumbleSeat goes only on the bottom of the stroller. The maximum weight limit on the RumbleSeat is 35 lbs.
These adapters are included with your RumbleSeat purchase and are not sold separately. They are not compatible with Toddler Seat, Bassinet or MESA car seats.
Can I put my bassinet on top when using in double mode?
No. When the VISTA V2 is being used in double mode, the bassinet must go on the bottom using the lower adapters, and the Toddler Seat must go on the top using the upper adapters.
Can I purchase a V2 canopy and attach it to my VISTA?
No, the canopies are not sold separately.
Will a V2 RumbleSeat fit on my older model VISTA?
Yes, the V2 RumbleSeat will fit onto 2015+ VISTA models. The original RumbleSeat will not fit on a V2 though.
What is the difference between the “Toddler Seat” and the “RumbleSeat”?
The Toddler Seat is the seat that comes with the stroller and is slightly bigger than the RumbleSeat. The Toddler Seat can hold up to 50 lbs, while the RumbleSeat can hold up to 35 lbs. The RumbleSeat is sold separately and the 2 seats are NOT interchangeable. The RumbleSeat can be used only on the bottom of the stroller and not on top.
Will the V2 RumbleSeat fit on my original VISTA?
If your stroller was manufactured after 2015, then yes, the V2 RumbleSeat WILL fit on your VISTA. However, the old RumbleSeat will NOT fit on a VISTA V2 stroller.
I am expecting twins, what do I need?
If you are expecting twins and want to use the stroller from birth with car seats AND bassinets, you will need:
- VISTA stroller that includes 1 Bassinet
- Additional Bassinet
- Lower Adapters
- Upper Adapters
2 x MESA V2 Infant car seats
Are the RumbleSeat adapters that come in the RumbleSeat box and the lower adapters the same thing?
No, the RumbleSeat adapters are compatible with ONLY the RumbleSeat. The RumbleSeat will not fit onto the lower adapters. The lower adapters are for a bassinet or MESA car seat only. The RumbleSeat cannot go on the top of the stroller.
Will a new UPPAbaby MESA car seat fit onto my old VISTA?
Not without adapters. If you have a VISTA stroller from 2014 or previous years, you will have to reach out directly to UPPAbaby and request they send you a set of adapters to make a MESA compatible with it. The MESA car seat will click directly onto the frame of 2015+ VISTA/V2 strollers [no adapters necessary].
I do not want to use a MESA car seat, but I still want the VISTA stroller - do I have any options for different car seat brands to create a travel system?YES! You can purchase an adapter separately to make a variety of infant car seats compatible with your VISTA stroller. However, aside from the Nuna/Maxi-Cosi/Cybex infant car seats, these adapters do not allow you to use the RumbleSeat and can only be used in single mode.
Nuna/Maxi-Cosi/Cybex seats require: UB-0919-UMA-WWNuna/Maxi-Cosi/Cybex seats on the bottom [for twins for example], require this adapter.
Chicco seats require: UB-0156
*These adapters all pass Canadian safety standards, however slight back and forth movement of the infant car seat may occur. This is to be expected and is not a risk factor as long as the infant car seat cannot be removed without pressing on the release on the car seat [release points vary by car seat].
