About Coachbuilt Pram

A coachbuilt pram is a design of pram popularly found in older and vintage models of pram. It is possible to buy brand new coachbuilt prams but they are less regularly found than other styles. Coachbuilt prams allow the baby to lie completely flat and are encased on all sides, similar to a carrycot but with further reinforcements.

One of the leading manufacturers of the coachbuilt pram is Silvercross but there are many other brands now offering prams in this style. Vintage Silvercross prams are very popular and the dainty, vintage style of the coachbuilt pram makes it popular with collectors too, with many dolls prams available in this style. Coachbuilt prams sometimes have straps or additional seats to suit older children as well as newborn babies.
