    One day I dream of owning a legit camera cart (and employing someone to push it for me), but in the meantime have been getting by with my little red ULINE wagon (pictured below). It collapses down making transportation easy and it can hold my camera, camera bag, Ronin-M on a stand and whatever else I can cram in it, but the wheels are starting to wear down and it's got me wondering what everyone else uses to lug their gear around? My camera assistant has the Costco version of this wagon which is nice because it has cupholders and bars across the ends that can support the weight of c-stands.

    I have one of these: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/produ...BI%3A514&smp=Y

    And a Rock N Roller R10 that I am liking a lot more than the Krane...that thing is way too heavy. The design is very cool though.

    I was a little bit skeptical of the Rock N Roller R12 but I got one (with no flat tires) and sure enough, I love it. Mine came with a damaged box and missing parts but they quickly sent me more parts. It's easy enough to tear down though I ended up attaching the top and bottom shelf and leaving mine assembled.

    How do you keep stuff from falling off the cart? I'd be worried about stuff rattling off when pushing it over rougher terrain.

    There are so many options.. but really you have to understand your own situation.

    Beaches? Elevators? Own a truck? Must fold up and go on your scooter?

    To take a small bag and a 75mm set of carbon sticks?

    Or a couple of crates stacked full of scaffolding grip?

    Mine.. homebuild to go in my van, over weight, indestructable, from aluminium from a scap year, handle made from standard gripping sizes to hang a light or a monitor. The bed handle pile of pelis. Being plywood topped i can use it and add maybe strap loops or 5/8 slots to hold a cstand as I use it.

    As for holding a big pile of stuff and not have it slip off.. that would be an assistant helping. As it is loaded its heavy enough to need two to move it safely.

    My previous cart was poorly made but the design shape is IMO great.

    Front platform holds some crates/bags and the rear was modified to hold a light via a Cstand columb.. also the cart is carrying a big battery to fire the light.. there is also wireless monitor on boad.
    A sort of rolling film thing which enables working on location much easier..

    The GripNGaff bags look interesting. I don't own one, but they've been around for a while, and they have models for different RnR carts
