If you want to use it as a portrait camera, I'd look for an old studio stand with two pillars, a tilting stage between them, and a heavy iron base. In the meanwhile, something like a Black and Decker portable workbench might do. I know someone who used one to take his Lotus 20x24" into the field, where the rolling cart was a bit impractical.
David, I was being a smart a$$. The thing is huge, about 6 or 7 feet long and I would guess about 175lbs give or take. The thing is immaculate however and operates smoothly with cranks in the rear to control front rise/fall and front swing and also has rear tilt. I made a low ball offer for it and to my surprise they said yes
