We bought it as a second buggy, especially for traveling purposes. We were choosing according to our requirements (compactness, low weight, easy maneuverability, lay-flat position, sun hood). Our previous experience with the brand was positive - so the Trip was an easy choice. We prefer practicality and quality over some nonsense features. We bought it new and we used it on all our holidays and trips. The color was a darker brown, and it did not fade. When our daughter grew up, we gave it (in perfect condition) to a friend who has been using it for over a year already without any issues.
