    Since I already have the cases, particularly the Lightware, I figure it is better to get a dolly type of cart, or the luggage type cart. For off-pavement, big wheeler is better? A medium weight would be good, not too heavy, not too light.

    Since you already have the cases, you can get this:

    I've had mine for 12 years and it looks battered, but works flawlessly.

    Shipping weight is 75 pounds. Shoot, a few guys on here use lenses that weigh more than that!

    I thought it would be nice for hauling my 8x10, Ries tripod, lawn chair, and small cooler but the wagon won't fit in my Jeep Wrangler. I can barely fit the other stuff in there! You would probably need a truck or SUV to haul it around.

    IMHO you are hauling a studio camera out to the field. I know that is what you have and you should put it to use but its a boat anchor! Read this thread for some other opinions: http://www.largeformatphotography.in...For-Field-Work

    I have an older one of those also, I mainly use it for hauling laundry, my version has fairly small wheels that do not work well anywhere there is a bump or slant.

    It folds up small and the built in bungees are nice.

    I carted my P2 in its hard case in this for a while:

    I still use it to haul my photo and lighting equipment on location. Folds up nicely to fit in my car.

    I think when Sinar named it F for field they meant for architecture jobs in the city and not for carrying it distances over rough country.

    I have a folding dolly from Costco that has been fine for urban use. I wouldn't use it off-road, or at least not more than say 50 feet from the car, but for hauling something around city streets even with broken sidewalks and frost heaves, it's been fine so long as you have adequate bungee cables or security straps securing the load to the cart.

    How about something like this:

    They give the size, but not the weight.....
