COMMON QUESTIONS:

Can I put my bassinet on top when using in double mode?

No. When the VISTA 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:

  1. VISTA stroller that includes 1 bassinet
  2. Additional bassinet
  3. RumbleSeat
  4. Lower adapters
  5. Upper adapters
  6. 2 x Mesa 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.

If you want to use a Nuna/Maxi-Cosi/Cybex or Clek infant car seat on your VISTA stroller, you will need this adapter:

UB-0254

If you want to use a Nuna/Maxi-Cosi/Cybex or Clek infant car seat on the bottom as well [twins for example], you will also need this adapter:

UB-0250-MC

*note that Clek has conducted their own compliance testing independent of UPPAbaby for the Clek Liing to be compatible with UPPAbaby strollers. 

If you want to use a Peg Perego infant car seat on your VISTA stroller, you will need the following adapter:

UB-0207

If you want to use a Chicco infant car seat on your VISTA stroller, you will need the following adapter:

UB-0156

If you want to use a Graco infant car seat on your VISTA stroller, you will need the following adapter:

UB-0086

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. 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].
