Mobile Trellis

Decided I would attempt to make a mobile trellis based on the old school volleyball net poles. A car tire filled with cement and a metal post centered in it. Biggest problem might be having to double up the tires to make sure of stability. Add some eye bolts and cable. mobile, stable, and with some salvaged supplies several could be made for a few bucks each and could last for several years.
Any thoughts? Anyone??

That doesn't sound very mobile with the cement part! haha
I have a couple pole bean trellises that I made out of galvanized electrical conduit. They are just in the shape of a 3-sided only rectangle. Instead of pushing the pipes into the ground, I hammer 2 green metal stakes (3-4') into the ground and the pole tubes fit nicely in the crook of the stakes. I then use twine to connect the trellis to the stakes.
You're probably thinking this doesn't sound very mobile, but it actually is very easy to move. You just pull up the stakes and put them in the ground somewhere else.
The other mobile trellis I'm trying out this year is an old swingset! Can't wait to grow my cucs up it.
Good luck to you.
