Actually its a really nice thing to have and they now have a travel version. You just take the spinders off and line them up in a case.
My friend and I saw it in person at the expo. The full rack was perfect for her because she didn't have a scrap room at the time. It folds down very quickly and sets up really fast. She took it to a 4 day crop we attended. She was up and going before any of us could find our pictures. She said she got a lot more done as well.
I would say start small and see how you like it, you can always go back and expand it later if need be.
