Default Sewing Machine Trolley

I recently bought a Bernina 570, and I need to buy a sewing trolley to transport it. The trolley needs to be no bigger than 10x16x24, which is carry on size for air travel. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Have you measured your machine? I could not find that model at https://www.tuttocases.com/pages/sew...size-chart-1#B The only one that I found that would meet the 10x16x24 criteria would be https://www.tuttocases.com/products/...hine-on-wheels (20"L x 14"H x 10"D) but note the inside dimensions measurement is 18"L x 12"H x 8"D

Janey is right. You need to measure your machine to see if it will even fit in a trolley with those outside dimensions. I have 2 tuttos that I used to take my machines to classes, for repair, etc. Tuttos are great for that but do be aware that they have no padding. They are just a soft side case made with thin fabric so there is no protection from the machine. If you are planning to take the machine in the cabin with you, that's a bit different but I'm not sure that you won't have to put it in the overheads.

I have looked at the tutto trolleys, my concern is how much protection is it for the machine. I guess wrapping my machine in fabric would be about the best I could do.
Maybe what I really need to do, is just travel with one of my smaller machine and leave my 570 at home.
Thank you ladies for your suggestions

If you have a smaller machine, I would definitely take it to travel. Besides having to take it on plane, you will have to get it thru the airport, in and out of the car, etc. I would take something smaller that would be easier to tote around and not have to worry about putting it in cargo and getting it damaged. I used to work at the airport in SLC and I can't tell you how many times I saw things fall off of the belt moving them from the ground to the plane. I would never send a sewing machine on a plane in the cargo hold.
