Does anyone have a good solution to transport the track using a car? I don't have a really small car but its no SUV or Van. Anyone have something similar to the pvc basket that can fit in to a car that carries a couple of Wide Ls either one wide L at a time or split it up. Doesnt really matter

Tranporting in a small Car

A single basket will not carry a Wide L and fit into a small car. Multiple smaller baskets may work. Keeping the one of the dimensions to about 12 inches or less should allow the basket to fit in a smaller vehicle. I'll have to work something out to get exact dimensions.

I've been able to fit an entire Mini Tile 96 in an SS040 Duffelbag 40"x20"x18" at www.duffelbags.com/duffelRollbags.htm

The duffle bag is about the right size for a Wide L too.

Not with the rails on. If you leave rails on you need to stagger it (many pictures of this) which makes it about 24" square, not the tile's natural 20" square. I think most of us want a bag that can handle the tiles with rails on, shame is they don't seem to have one I fear what a custom order would cost unless RCP did it. Having said that, I think if RCP did, the price would be reasonable based on the other bag pricing. Could even throw the RCP logo on. My vote would be a for a 24x24x24 or so bag. 2 of those would cover me I think. Or maybe shoot for a larger 24x24x50 bag and try to fit a whole wideL or so in it? I'd love a single bag/track solution!

Was moving into our new house over the weekend, rented a uhaul to move the big stuff. While in the shop I browsed their boxes and found something that might work... http://store.uhaul.com/product_detail.aspx?id=3588

Picked one up and hope to test it out tonight. I envision doing the 4 direction stack up (w/ borders on) and then sliding it sideways into the box. I'd like it to be a bit taller since it seems like it would take 2-3 boxes for just a single wide L, but they're not too expensive and would be better than nothing. RCP just needs to release a carry/storage bag!

EDIT: this might work for keeping tiles in 2x1 format, but I'm not sure how you could keep the rails on... There might be a way to stack it, but would take some experimentation.

This one also looks very promising, would cut down on # of boxes: http://store.uhaul.com/product_detail.aspx?id=3461

Post #9 of this thread, no word since. I'm also deadly curious about the 50cm tile to 30mm tile adapters. He said they might do something with it in their next shipment, but I haven't seen anything since.

Sorry to dig up a dinosaur, but has anyone found an available solution for transporting RCP track? Not card board. This needs to be durable and last for a while. I'd like to get one Wide-L set in a single container. I'll need at least 4 containers plus a 5th like sized one for cars, tools etc. I am not averse to building my own but if there is something readily available I'd check it out.

Thanks,
