The hard trucker road case is something i'll look into, i want to have a real sturdy case so i know my stuff is safe. As for the weight.. I'm almost a little nervous when it arrives because of the weight issue haha. I went with the 10 because the pedal holder takes up 6, i need 2 for my poweramp, 1 space for my lexicon, and one for the gcx. I've helped my friend move his hammond b-3 many times so the rack shouldnt be too bad.. although i know my back will be sore the day after moving it! as for the ramp, I was at a yard sale and found a aluminum collapsible ramp that was used for a handicapped person. Works wonders!
