I am planning to take a pair of 24 gallon Rubbermaid action packers as luggage on an airplane. I would also like to take a hand truck to carry them on before and after checking the action packers.

What kind of hand truck would 1) carry them both, and 2) collapse small enough to fit inside of the action packer? Where should I look and how can I make sure a product will fit?

    This is way too narrow to be of interest for other users. – uncovery Sep 7 '13 at 4:31
  • I worried that this could be too narrow. Can this question be edited and salvaged? I thought about asking, what is the 'best hand truck to take on an airplane' but that seemed too much like an opinion question, which would not fly on some other stackexchange sites (I am clearly new to Travel.) – pc1oad1etter Sep 7 '13 at 18:46
  • Possible alternative: "What characteristics should I look for in a hand truck to take with luggage on a trip?" Thoughts? – pc1oad1etter Sep 7 '13 at 18:49
  • If I can make a defense for why this is a valuable question (as reworded): this can be a useful traveling tool, but with a multitude of airplane policies and variance in size allowances, it would be helpful to have guidance on what characteristics to look for. – pc1oad1etter Sep 7 '13 at 18:59

    I don't get how this is too narrow. I've wondered about this exact thing. Particularly because checking baggage is much cheaper than using a courier. People travel in a variety of different situations. Sometimes you're moving gear from place to place. This question should be reopened. – alx9r Sep 8 '13 at 18:16
