There’s many times when having a trolley would be useful. Fortunately Outwell have made the foldable Outwell Transporter trolley. Read our review.

As a family, you often end up with having to move too much stuff. Fortunately someone invented the wheel. Fortunately Outwell invented the Transporter…

The problem with too much gear

If your push chair looks like this, you're not alone

Have you ever been to the beach under a mountain of gear?

We’ve not been the only ones trying to drag a push chair across sand with just about everything possible hanging from the handles.

On a campsite in Italy a few years ago we hired a ‘rumble truck’. Although designed to pull small kids along, it was mainly used by everyone to ferry gear to the beach. It made life so much easier, and on the flat, the kids could even pull it along.

How do you get all that gear to the beach?

We’ve appeared to developed an annual pilgrimage to North Cornwall to sample the local waves.

Once again we find ourselves with too much stuff: bodyboards, wet suits, windbreak/shelter, something to sit on, picnic, etc., etc., etc.!

A little trolley truck would help a lot.

How do you get drinking water back to your tent? How do you carry the campfire logs?

When camping too there’s lots of things to carry.

Water bottles are heavy when full, and carrying a lot of logs is just plain awkward sometimes.

Plus, they’re usually too heavy for most people in the family.

Hmm….if only we had a useful trolley.

How do you get your camping gear to a pitch when cars aren’t allowed?

There’s a few fantastic campsites that don’t allow you to park next to your tent. In fact, no vehicles are allowed in the camping field at all.

These can be great places for kids. You know that they can run around without someone ‘not looking’ when driving their car.

Unfortunately, family camping usually means a lot of camping gear. The thought of transporting it all by hand is not good.

Some campsites offer an old wheel barrow (yes, we been given the same barrow that was used to muck out stables), and some even charge for transporting your gear to your pitch.

Your own trolley would be useful here too.

How do you get your canoeing gear to the water’s edge?

Lots of canoeing gear to move

Even with the inflatable canoes we use, there’s still a lot of gear to get to the water. Sometimes you have to park quite some distance from where you put in.

There’s the inflatable canoes, paddles, buoyancy aids, dry bags with essentials in (e.g. emergency and picnic!).

A trolley would be useful here too, saving on the amount of trips you need to make to and from the car.

The Outwell Transporter is even useful at Air Shows

We also found the Outwell Transporter useful at an air show, and so many people commented on how it was such a great idea.

Often at these events you may have to park some way from where all the action is, and you’ll need to setup someone to sit a bit closer (plus you’ll often need protection from wind, rain, and sun). The Outwell Transporter was the perfect item to take in the car to solve this problem.


I’m sure you can think of plenty more times a trolley would be useful.

Fortunately for us, we’ve started using a solution to this problem….


The Outwell Transporter Folding Trolley

The Outwell Transporter is handy to have on the campsite, and also at the beach, canoeing, and hundreds of other things when you have just too much gear.

Here’s a short video we put together showing you the Outwell Transporter in action.


Transporting and unfolding the Outwell Transporter

The Outwell Transporter folds up into its own little carry case.

I’ve found that this fits into the car boot or roof box, and although space can be tight when the car is full of camping gear, we’ve found it really useful when we have taken it.

Unfolding the Outwell Transporter

Unfolding the Outwell Transporter

It unfolds in seconds, simply by pushing down in the middle.

Folding it up is just as simple by pulling up on a strap in the middle of the transporter.

When folded the Outwell Transporter is 3ocm x 19 cm x 79 cm and weighs around 12 kilos.

Using the Outwell Transporter

It has nice big wheels, and so it is really easy to move around on uneven ground across a campsite or other places where there’s no tarmac.

Our kids found no problems at all pulling it along. They like pulling the trolley along, so makes it easier to share out the chores.

The trolley really came into its own enabling someone other than Dad to go and fetch back a full Jerry Can of drinking water 😉

Transporting our canoeing gear was made easier when we went up to the lake at Dinas campsite, and have taken it with us on a few other canoeing expeditions since.


Our review rating of the Outwell Transporter

Whilst a trolley is not an essential bit of kit, this has been one of those items that’s made life a little bit easier. It’s a good design and made well too, and gets the thumbs up from us.


You can find some more details on the Outwell webpage.

      I think there’s been some confusion. We’re not a shop and we don’t sell the trolley 😉
