I know this is an old thread, but I thought I'd still contribute.

DD just uses a normal suitcase and a collapsible tripod from Walmart. Works just fine for us, not as big or heavy, fits what we need, and a lot cheaper.

Missed this thread the 1st time. 

1) Which rolling dance bag do you have? medium Dream Duffle 

2) Does it lean to the side when you hang a lot of costumes on it?  if it leans it is very little because I've never noticed.

DD used a medium Dream Duffel for many years, it was one of the best purchases we ever made, however the rack did tilt a bit. The racks on the ones that came out a couple of years later seemed sturdier. When it was time to get something new (the wheels were a mess and couldn't be fixed), we went with a Pack2Rack, mostly because it can be stored under a bed when not in use. Dream Duffel and Pack2Rack are both good quality and have good sales. I got both on sale.

I know this thread is old but has anyone has any experience with the new Dream Duffel "Recital" rack duffel? I like some of the features on paper but can't find any customer reviews.

I just looked up this bag as I hadn't seen it before. I love that it folds for storage!

I actually found a diy link on Pinterest & decided to experiment. Making my DD's dance bag was very inexpensive & her rack is very sturdy & has never leaned. We are going on 3 years now, with no issues. There are several DIY YouTube videos that can help you along the way. Here's the link that we used. Instead of painting the rack, my daughter & niece chose to decorate theirs with decorative duct tape. Many of their friends have transitioned to the DIY bags now.

Had a DIY version using PVC and the carry on dream duffel for years.  Just recently upgraded to the glam'r gear, standard size and I am beyond impressed. This design seems to correct many of the things that were flaws in other designs.  I was interested in the ovation, but it was just way bigger than we needed (it is 33 inches long). The standard glam'r gear is 26 and will hold plenty.  My daughter is 13 now, so the big, poofy and cutesy costumes are no more. Was able to buy a factory second at a pretty good savings. The bag can be zipped shut while the rack is up. The interior is light grey, so it is not a black hole of lost accessories. The rack is taller and does not lean. Includes a privacy curtain. It has an insulated pocket.  It is soft sided, but does not collapse.  Her teammates have all the different bags, and this one is worth the price difference.  I am very conservative about spending money on these types of things as I would rather invest in classes, shoes, etc than a bag.  Glam'r Gear is worth it.

Looks kind of like a large knapsack.

This is what we use too, it takes up less space in a tight dressing room too. Some of our other dancers have switched to this as well, after struggling to find space for their large bags.

This is the one we have. We often have small change spaces so I like that it's easy to work out of the bag as the costumes are all hanging there and then the "door" keeps everything else easily accessible.

I have two medium dream duffels, bought about 5 years apart. I swear the new Dream Duffels lean less than the old ones did. That said, it's the only good thing about the newer ones. The old ones were sturdier!
