This is similar to what we used. Added some handles to the side of it and 2 people could lift it with ease.

Though I posted the pic yesterday but apparently not..

I use a slightly inflated garden tractor tube in the fire box. I have a Primo Jr. that will fit between my truck bed and the fifth wheel in the corner of the box. I had to extend the bed about 10" to allow the pin box to clear it in turns.

We have a mini max, which is the perfect size for transporting. The surface area is larger than the mini - I believe it is the size of the small. I help my husband put it in the bed of the truck, where we carry it. He puts it back in one corner and uses heavy duty bungee straps to hold it in place so it does not slide around. I don't think we do anything special to the inside of it. It's lined with the ceramic, so I don't think the ceramic is going anywhere. We take the egg with us on all of our trips. We also have a large egg that we keep on the porch at home. I have to say that since we got the mini max, we don't use the large one very often.

We have the mini egg. It fits in a square igloo cooler with wheels and a folding handle. You can also put accessories in the cooler along with the egg. Fits nicely in the basement of the 5er. I can lift the cooler with egg into the basement.

I leave my Big Green Egg on my porch at home, and bought a Pit Barrell Cooker (PBC) for traveling.
It is the same diameter as the large egg at 18", but much lighter, and only $299.
Mine fits nicely strapped down behind the cab while hauling the fifth wheel trailer.
I bought the optional cover and ash tray for my PBC. All your supplies, charcoal, etc fit inside for easy travel.

Good luck!

Before you buy a green egg, research a "Traeger" grill. They sell a small one with collapsible legs (tail-gator).
It's a wood pellet smoker, grill, bakes, etc. an entire meal. It's a Convection cooker and will not burn food. Set the timer and go fishing.

I have the mini, and just set it in a corner of the bedroom. The stand is in the basement. It has traveled in three class As in that manor, for a few years and many miles. No problem.

There is nothing like a green egg. Have had a large at home for many years and my whole family, brothers, nieces, nephews and others all have them. When we purchased our travel trailer that was the first purchase I had to make other than the essentials like hoses, chocks and the like. We bought a mini-max and it is the perfect size. Can grill, smoke, griddle, pizza and what ever you do it is always better on an egg. There are other knock offs but only one original that everyone tries to copy and they do it cheaper but not the same. It is the same size as a small and easy enough for me to lift and move by myself, but best with my wife on one handle. So, how do I carry it? Buggie it in the rear corner of the pick up. Never shifts or move and have traveled probably 3,000 miles with it.
