Here's another option.
I had the fuselage supported in the standard rolling fuselage cradle, with the main support under the mainspar and the aft support under the second last bulkhead. The bottom of the fuselage was filled with slabs of (approx) 4" thick polystyrene foam that is used in cool room construction (amongst other things) then I cut to shape one of the crate lids that the kit came packaged in. The foam is just thick enough so that the plywood deck cleared the bulkheads. I'm 160lb and it worked fine. I don't think this setup would argue if it had another 20lb or so on it. The main thing is make sure you make yourself a false floor for the baggage area, as this doesn't appear overly robust so you may ding it getting in and out of the rear cone.
Tom.
