XL Eggnest

I have a temporary home for my XL right now and am trying to decide on purchasing a Nest for it. My back porch is stamped concrete made to look like big stones so it is not the smoothest surface for rolling. Will the XL egg and Nest be stable enough for rolling around on my porch? Thanks

    DHall,[p]It is sturdy, but none of them handle rolling around on rough surfaces

    you will have no problem with the xl-nest. the xl nest has the larger wheels on it so it rolls nice over most surfaces. just make sure you pull it with the rear lid hinge, use it like a handle so if it starts to tip over you will be able to catch it.

  • DHall, If you get the nest, remember to pull the egg/nest combo and not push it.......or you could push it over!

    DHall,[p]In addition to the other advice, I find that giving a little twist at the handle as I start to roll my large usually makes the wheels turn the way they should and rolling becomes easier whether pushing or pulling (but, with an XL, please pull rather than push!)
