I have used a 5 X 8 trailer that you bolt together from the local hardware
store.  You can bolt on the wood to form a frame to hold the cab.  I used it
to transport the cab to the media blaster in my area and also to a local
body shop.  They all appreciated the fact that it was mobile.  After they
were done I hitched it up to my truck and drove it home to complete the work
I was able to do.  I fit it on sideways.

Now I also have a trailer to haul other parts home, and it folds up and can
be stored by the side of the garage to be used for other hauling needs I
have.  All you have to do is buy the 2 by's for what you need to haul.

Cost under $250.  Assembly time one Saturday afternoon.
