What trolley are you using? Pros? Cons?

How do you transport your baby? And do you have additional luggage for the embroidery arm or do you use the Pfaff case that it came in?

I purchased my machine with the embroidery unit at the end of the year. So far I have been manually carrying it with the plastic cover, but the shifting and clattering of the cover sets my teeth on edge when I'm carrying. Oh, and it's heavy, too!

So, thoughts and suggestions welcome!

My PCP Panzy has the pfurple luggage trolley and embroidery unit case, although I don't plan on taking him anywhere other than for his annual physical. Pfaff has other trolley and embroidery unit cases available, and the CS cases also fit the PCP.

I love love love the thick padding on the pfurple set, and the trolley seems extremely rugged.

No cons, other than for me, living in a studio apartment, the space issue for the trolley. The embroidery unit lives in the case whenever it's not actually in use, for protection.

I didn't get the luggage set as part of the promo. I've got the gray with red trim embroidery unit. It's OK except for the big PFAFF stitched on the front! lol I don't feel the need to tell people on the moon what machine I have!

Yes, the luggage is monstrous. I looked at a Janome 1200 and it was a temptation with the embroidery unit being so small.

I forgot that Pfaff had a set. It didn't come up in a search for some reason.

Thanks!

I have the CS luggage trolley for the PCP, they are the same size machine. It loads via the front rather than lowering into it. I used it last week for the retreat I went to. It is very nice. I also have the grey and red case for the emb. unit and found out I also have the CS cover but I don't have the ambition to wrestle with the insert. I would have preferred the purple but that is what my dealer had and I think she has aspirations for me to upgrade.

My dealer knows better than to even THINK about Panzy leaving me in any way shape or form!

When I arrived at her shop for the event, I did what I always do...went over to her PCP and gave it a hug. The Pfaff Demonstrator laughed and said "You must be the "addicted to PCP" person.

I asked my dealer about the purple last week, but she was so busy we both forgot about it! I need to get something and the trolleys they have at the dealer seem really nice. I keep my embroidery unit in the gray and red case as well to keep it safe. It is kind of hard on the eyes though!
