    I use a modified jogging baby stroller with three wheels. I like the three wheels because it gives me a stable, off ground, platform for camera bag, etc.

    And they have large wheels which makes them easy to push, and they handle rough terrain better than golf carts which are also popular, but tend to have small wheels.

    Chuck, this is my cart. It's basically a two-wheeled wheelbarrow kit that I got at Lowes.
    Instead of the tub I mounted some plywood between the handles and use a few nylon straps to cinch everything down.
    I keep the tire pressure a tad low to help with the shock of going over ruts, rocks, and roots.

    Here's what I used with my 8x10, before I sold most of the kit. I currently use this rig for 4x5.

    I purchased one of these carts to haul decoys next winter, but having it arrive and all assembled I'll be adding a few boards and racks to push my Sinar P around on my next project.
    I placed 2 bales of hay and took them 600 ft across a pasture with ease.

    You can take the front wheel assembly off the marsh mule cart and the center beam under the cart slide into a 2x2 trailer hitch to haul the cart around, example would be cargo carriers you see on the back of SUVs to haul their coolers and other items.

    Re: Two or three wheel dolly

    A number of years ago, I got a golf bag cart at the Goodwill store.
    Took it hoime and stripped off most of the golf bag related parts.
    Got out a vintage external backpack frame and fastened it on with smallish hose clamps.

    Hung my f64 backpack (with all the 8x10 kit) on it just by looping the shoulder straps over that (shortened to the max) and the waste belt too.

    It handled the weight, pulled well off the path too. In use, I just laid it down on the handle with the bag off the ground and convienitnt to use.

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