I've thought about the golf cart option. But I need a custom bed on the back of it to mount the jib. Problem with that is I would also need a car hauler or trailer to get the golf cart to the location.

And my wife will tell you, I'm not a DIY person!!! Thanks for the suggestion! Ralph

I've seen jibs mounted on the back of those Gator utility vehicles used for mobility when shooting golf tournaments. There's another one called a Mule.

I've seen them also. But for what I"m doing, I think if I can just get a good dolly with pneumatic tires, I can tow the jib behind me in a golf cart from the golf course.

I've done that before with a friend who has a jib.

was wondering, how stable is the visual when you need to do a sudden stop?
