I Moved my gates BC-1H by myself in a ford F-150 Van.
if you remove the transformers.
The total weight is around 550-600lbs
Pictures Of it in my van  and in its new home.
 can be seen at

I have not yet worked on it  been busy with the day job.
 what Band do you plan on using it on  160 or 75?
or both.
 I have heard of guys getting the BC-1h as a triband rig
40-75 and 160    Sounds like too much work and modifications.
Stay in touch..
