Any thoughts on which is overall better? I'll be working in the LA area primarily. I'm looking for a senior sized cart and I like the idea of being able to remove the wheels for packing the cart into smaller vehicles if needed. Yaeger and Sons is out of my budget currently. Any thoughts or other cart suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I'm pretty close to getting a Backstage junior cart, I love how it packs up all compact into itself. It can be a little cumbersome I think if you're trying to get into your car quickly at wrap, having to disassemble everything, but its construction is pretty great.

Undoubtedly the backstage cart. Very, very nice to work from.
