    Rugged Pull Cart/Dolly to haul around 11x14 Camera equip?

    Anyone have any good ideas of something I can haul around an 11x14 camera on?

    Need something lightweight yet rugged to maybe pull off pavement. Sand/Rock/Dirt Trails.

    Right now it is in a Tenba RS-G5W ATA Air Case with wheels, but the wheels are pretty dinky, not really suitable for long treks.

    I was looking to put that onto something then haul it around.

    The best I can find is a MultiCart 8-in-1 Equipment Transporters - R12NF All-Terrain I found on B and H.

    Any other ideas?

    Thanks, much appreciated.

    Jogging strollers -- find a store that carries used baby stuff or Craig's list.

    I use to have one of these:

    But I gave it away to when my triplets got too big (to another family with triplets) -- I should have kept it. I could have hauled my 11x14 and 8x10 with me! I took the stroller up creeks, on hiking trails (rugged ones), on the beach, etc. At the end I probably had a hundred pounds or so of kids on the stroller.

    There also game carts, for example:

    At least with LF landscape, a bad day of photography can still be a good day of exercise.

    I've been using this. I've had the case with my 8x10 Eastman, with a graflex vulcanoid case above it, and a 3051 tripod on top with everything lashed down with bungee cords. Does okay over grass/curbs/etc. I haven't tried to hike with it.

    These are great! I never thought of these.

    Thanks, I think the game cart might be the way to go. I'll have to look into this more.

    Thanks a lot.

    Google "deer cart" to see some options that will allow you to transport a hard or soft case in somewhat rough terrain.

    I have the all-terrain R12 cart with pneumatic wheels front and back and it's *not* what you want for going down trails--or long distances. It's great for moving heavy loads over uneven surfaces, but it's large and not agile enough for trail use.

    This is what I use: http://www.nordiccab.com/menu/home

    Bottom is a plastic tub and rated for a load of 110 pounds - really easy to push, but you can also use handles to pull it - or, if you have one, you can use a dog harness so your dog can pull it for you. Wheels can be switched to skis in the winter. Really well designed and worth the cost - I went through a few cheaper "things" before I found this.

    Thanks for the heads up. Looks like there are other options closer to what I'm looking for.

    This is pretty good. I really like the ski option. Thanks!
