So I've got a new XX14G coming my way anytime now (I've been waiting for it to come off backorder since April! lol) and I've been looking at how to take care of it. I've already got the plans I want for detachable wheel barrow handles and wheels and I need to figure out how to store it.
The Orion storage cases are nice but I'm not sold on them. I know if you spend almost $2700 bucks on a tube, 300 for a set of cases shouldn't be a deal breaker but I'm just not convinced they're worth the price.
I've looked around for alternative cases to save a bit of money and found Drum cases and they're alright, but b/c they wouldn't exactly fit, I'm not sold on them.
I then started looking at plastic storage bins and think I've come up with my plan. I want to get either one bin that fits both the upper and lower tube assemblies together or I could get 2 smaller bins to fit them separately. I would get memory foam, cut it out to fit the bottom of the storage bin then double layer it w/ a cut out to fit the tube laying down side ways. Or if I found one tall enough I could keep the tube vertically. I'm finding bins that have rubber seals to help keep out moisture and dust, and the hard case generally should protect better than a soft shell.
But what am I missing? Can I store the lower assembly sideways? or should I always store it vertically, even in a setup like this? Weight and size aren't a terrible concern to me. I also have a pickup, so space isn't a huge deal.
Thanks for any advice, guidance or "food for thought! as I'm very new to all this!
