Default Transporting BGE to Contests

Help! I've got a (4) Large BGE line-up for contests and am looking for ideas on making the transport a bit easier. Currently they are loaded into my pick-up bed one by one. I'm a handy carpenter and welder so I want to make some sort of a racking assembly that the eggs can be housed in both for transport and for cooking. Does anyone have any ideas to share?

Thanks in advance!

For a truck, make a wood crate. Get a Pot Lifter and two people can lift the eggs easily. That's how we use to do it. Even when I first got my enclosed trailer. Now we just roll the eggs in the nest up the ramp and strap them to the walls with a strap over the tops.

Maybe the BGE company should be marketing a egg carton to complement their line of eggs and nests.

Gotta be careful, you can still crack a hardboiled egg.

I know your dilemma they certainly are heavy and like the farkers here point out can break like an egg. Is there any system that you can think of that you can mimic? or

I just use ratchet straps to hold mine against the side of the bed. My problem is getting it in -- I usually end up taking it apart, moving it up piece by piece and putting it back together in the truck. Real pain in the rump!

I've seen wades Egg and he made a little handy cap type setup where it was a lift and it was big enough for his egg.

I don't think it was hidralic though, I didn't get there in time to see him use it.

Two or more at a time, going up into a truck bed is going to be heavy without figuring the weight of a table or cart. I think I'd go with a ramp and take them up 1 at a time. BGE makes a handy little attachment that will work with the newer version of the nest.

So you are wanting to continue using your truck bed for transport of them but need a better way to secure them in the truck bed? I would say get a tommy gate and put them on there and use that. A buddy of mine did that and he put them to the edge so he can slide off into the nest. Thing about having them in a cart in a truck bed is they will sit high and could topple on a turn.

Have you considered a trailer built to haul the eggs?
Have them setup to use in place on an open bed trailer?
Maybe 4 eggs on the left side and prep surface behind the eggs.
Maybe a roof? shelter?
I think you could find a cheap trailer and retro fit it to the eggs.
