    Something to consider is wheel size. The baby joggers use a pneumatic tire of a size that deals
    with bumps & obstructions far better than hard rubber wheels.
    Another advantage is the tricycle format. It's a lot easier to deal with than either two OR four wheeled carts
    If you don't think the fabric seat is sturdy enough, it shouldn't be a problem to make of have made
    a metal frame.

    You should have bought a Lotus 20x24, it looks like it comes with its own trolley...
    Then all you need to do is fix up a tow hitch to the car.

    I would need a tow hitch, my VW Jetta hardly has enough room for what little gear I have, a Kodak 8x10 2D. Love the idea.

    There was a cart sometime back maybe in LFF from the hunting side that had 2 large wheels and could be used to transport game that had been shot. Don't guess anyone here has a link to it?

    I purchased a 2-wheel wheelbarrow from the hardware store. I didn't mount the container but made a platform out of plywood. Just kind of threw it together pretty fast so I could haul my 8X10 gear off into the woods. I use tie-down straps to keep everything in place. It was only about $40.

    I do a lot of location video and photography - my kids got me a rock-n-roller cart for christmas a year back. Freaking love it, used to use a big steel dolly, but these carts are so cool, and fold down very small when not in use, or in a vehicle. And lots of accessories to customize. May not be just the thing for the OP but they're well thought out and really handy. They start at $100 - Dead Link Removed
