  • Patent number: 5636852
    Abstract: A recreational equipment transportation apparatus including a tubular frame with a detachable handle pivotally mounted thereto. A pivotally-mounted first platform receives an ice chest. The top surface of the ice chest defines a second platform on which a recreational equipment compartment (REC) is received. Detachable straps maintain the REC against the frame. A center stake, slidingly received in the frame, and a handle stake, slidingly received in the handle are selectably penetrable in the surface maintaining the apparatus. The center stake prevents the wheels from rolling. The handle stake and the wheels define a stable tripod platform for the recreation site. The invention also provides for shelter including an umbrella, tent, blind and/or netting draped over the frame. The invention also may include batteries and/or solar cells for energizing lamps and/or outlets on the frame. The invention may be transported by any one of a number of locomotive means, e.g., a bicycle.
