Pit Packing

I am heading down to Texas for vacation in Dec. I am thinking about taking my wsm along for the ride.

Looking for ideas on how to pack it up. I know I can't put it back in the box it came in since I put it together and put wheels on it but I am sure you folks have come up with some well thought out configurations.

I will be tying it down to a home made version of one of these.

Ideas and/or pics will be most helpful.

Buy another one in Texas and save the box. Then ship it home before you leave. What part of Texas are you going to be in?

When I travel I put the lid , charcol holder thing, the water tray and base in 1 plastic garbage bag. The center section goes in a second bag by itself...If I was going to put it in a rack like you showed, Id put it in whole securing it with a few ratchet straps...

Cliff when I travel with mine I put the sand pan in the bottom and then put it in the back of my truck up against the window and run a ratchet strap through the handle and then crank it down. Works for me and I've driven it as far as Myrtle Beach and back many times without a problem!
