    Good idea. I would like little longer handles, but it seems to work like that too. Nice work!

    It would make a good trades day or flea market trolley. Nothing is more frustrating than finding that particular item you had no idea you were looking for only to have to try an lug it back to your vehicle either on your back in your arms or asking a bud to help you carry it.
    I have a folding aluminum 2 wheel hand truck somewhere that I used to carry with me but they can be challenges to transport some items with.
    This could be a substitute for one of those
    Never try to tell me it can't be done

    Excuse me if I missed it, but what is the fabric you used to make the tray? (I had to look it up to find that the part I used to call the 'tub' was, in fact, called a "tray" on a wheelbarrow.)

    Nice project and great video - even though YouTube is starting to pepper their videos with ads to the point of unusability.

    Talk about re-inventing stuff, that is a brilliant idea.
    I have a 1972 Land Rover Series III Truck Cab/Pick-Up and a 1962 Land Rover Series 2a Carawagon Camper.

    A well deserved win. Nice work and a good idea.
    If you can't make it precise make it adjustable.
