    you mean those suitcases with a long handle and those tiny little wheels? that sound like a dumptruck when anyone pulls them across the pavement? much too noisy for me and I cant imagine their much fun pulling across land, still each to their own.

    Those things are good on pavement etc but not off it!
    Get another and fix them on the back of a bike !
    Anything with wheels you intend taking off pavement/road needs wheels 18in or larger in dia, 6in of ground clearance, width the same or greater than wheel dia
    and the payload needs to be 4x the wheel dia ( in inchs) in kg or less! 18in = 72kg
    Anything less and it is better to just carry it!

    A light box .6mx1.2m or there abouts and two large mountain bike wheels plus two long poles approx. three meters long and you get a cart you can easily drag most anywhere!
    If that box is sealed at the bottom and not overloaded it can even be floated across water!

    I think these are a bit like prams or buggies, fine on a paved surface but hell to move across country.
