Yep, that's mine. I took the burners off and upgraded them, and added the plumbing. But those burners will work, I just wanted eye candy. Be aware that it will work fine for smaller batches, but I noticed that with 10 gallon batches, it started to bow in the middle, so I needed to add a couple of supports. I also added better casters than it comes with because the factory ones also wouldn't hold the weight of 10 gallon batches.

Personally, I think you're better off building one from scratch. A certain member and i are in possession of all the scrap bed frames and an old water heater that a person might need to construct one. I don't know if he's willing to part with his, but I am.
Worst-case you spend $10 on bed frames from goodwill.
Working from scratch would also allow you to build a three-burner stand that would come apart and "nest" for tighter storage, but be solid while brewing.
Just sayin' . . . :wink:
