    I wonder how the balance is? depending on what you put in there, it may be front heavy and hard to pull. Any thoughts?

    Alan, after viewing the side view, I suspect that would be a non-issue, as the center of gravity of the package with a full backpack will be close to the axle; therefore the wheels will support the lion's share of the weight requiring only a small vertical force to be applied at the handle (and this can even be reduced by extending the telescoping handle). Regardless of the configuration, the pulling force would change very little.

    I bicycled with a 4x5 for about a half year in New Zealand (2000 miles with the loaded bike) -- this was a while back and I have heard they have paved most of the roads by now. Bombing down the backside of Haast Pass (from the west) -- gravel road was the classic washboard! I regularly went over the bike and camera equipment to tightened things up! One lens (Caltar IIN 150/5.6) on the trip -- still use it with the same 4x5 (Gowland PocketView), thirty years later.

    What about one of those elaborate walkers with a seat, wheels and hand breaks? Many have a strong seat and can support quite a bit of weight.

    Another thought: What about adapting a golf-bag pull cart?

    There are only three types of mounting flanges; too big, too small and wrong thread!
