Alternative to Pedaltrain Pro?

I have a Pedaltrain 2 with the ATA case, and have run out of room so I need something bigger.
A Pedaltrain Pro seems like it would be nice but is $300 (selling the 2 would be ~$140 so it's a huge jump for a college student)
I need a heavy duty case so I can't go with the SC for the pro.
Does anyone know any alternatives?

you could make a pedalboard to pedaltrain specs...get some wood, or go to akia and get a couple of those gorm shelves and disassemble them and use the slats to make a new bigger board...those gorm shelves are cheap...

making pedal boards is fun...although you mentioned your a college student so I assume you dont have a lot of access to a garage full of wood working tools, maybe dad can help with that.

Pedaltrains are great, probably the best pedalboard, if only for its simplicity and fucntion, but they are SOOOO over priced...make one!!

If I didn't have to leave for school in a few weeks/had a dad who was good with that stuff I would definitely want to build my own
If I had more time I could probably find someone with a good table saw and make it work, but unfortunately I don't, oh well
