How to transport your big green egg?

I have got the blessing from my wife to acquire a big green egg. I think a medium would be manageable to bring along in our 5th wheel. So my question to the masses is, how do you secure your egg during transport? As always pictures are worth a thousand words. Thanks a lot!

Medium egg is 95 pounds. Obviously not a pool noodle, but I think it is manageable.

There are various ways to carry them, but one of the most important things is to make sure the ceramic inside the Egg is either padded, or removed and transported separately.
For our small Egg I made a stand out of 2x4's that doubled as a crate to carry it with. I don't have any pics of it as it wasn't the prettiest to look at but it was functional. I would pack the inside of the Egg with egg crate foam (ironic?) to keep the firebox and fire ring from moving too much.

EDIT: It looked something like this:

To properly crate and transport a Used Egg would require a "Forklift" they are NOT a Travel Friendly Grill,BUT they sure cook good! Youroo!!

We have an XL on our deck at home and will get a Mini Max for the fifth wheel. They have a built in carrying handle. Would be very manageable. Long live EGG heads.
