I own a Safe with the cart and although it could probably be done it would be way too much trouble in my opinon. A single axle utility trailer with a drop ramp would easily handle Vault or Safe. Could either buy one or rent from U-haul for about $16 a day.
your right. I own an 18ft car hauler with ramps. Probably easier to load it up on there with ramps and a winch I have on it. Just thought why use the trailer when I can use the truck...but for the most part, so much easier to load anything onto my trailer.

I received my Vault just before Christmas, and I love it. I did have problems keeping the temp down at first, until I sealed the slider door with my Guru adapter in. The longest run at 225 I have been able to get was 10 hours without having to reload.

I have to ask, why are you trying to choke the temps down so much? Most vaults love to run at 270ish. Why not roll with it?

Some things - like briskets - like to be cooked lower IMO. I prefer cooking my briskets and shoulders at 225 for at least the first 65% of the cook. I have no trouble holding 225 (or even 200) on my Safe when the water pan is full. I've also had no issues with the sliding damper - works well for me and haven't noticed any significant leaks.

They are made like tanks and I don't think you'll find a better vertical/upright cooker for the money. Period.
