How to make a portable wall frame for wall panels 2 x 2 1/2 feet each? Answered

I'm making a convention piece that needs to be transported back and forth between different states. The front panels are already created and measure 2 x 2 1/2 feet each totalling a 8 foot height and 10 foot width. Please see image for example. I'm trying to figure out how to make a light weight frame for the panels to mount onto. The reason why the panel pieces are so small is due to shipping limitations so also looking for the frame to be portable as well. The longest size that I can go up to for any piece will be 4 feet in length. The frame will have to be free standing and may go up to 3 feet deep/back behind the wall front. There are no side, ceiling, or back wall to attach to so this will be a truly free standing unit.


How heavy are the monitors ?

How heavy are the panels ?

Very light less than 2 pounds each. They are basically 1/4 plywood painted and cleared. They are attached together with 1" x 1" pieces that surround the outer edges of the plywood and then the panels are attached together by small bolts/nuts and washers on the 1" x 1" pieces.

I forgot to mention that I would need a mounting system for the TV monitors on the frame as well. I believe this will help in distributing the weight back so the wall doesn't fall forward.
