The problem with occupying too much real estate was precisely why I built mine, to get away from that cubic metre (volume) of steel framing at either end of the bodyshell. Mine, when off the car both hoops lie flat against the wall around the LHS cupboard behind the car & the two plate with the rollers lie on top of the cupboard - total space needed is 40 + 40 = 80mm thick away from the wall - compare that to 2 x 1 cubic metre volume for each end of yours.
You clearly have enough storage for your frame when not in use, I don't have space to store a frame like yours & being close to the coast, it would inevitably end up outside, so would need to be galvanised to survive, thus adding to the costs.
To facilitate moving my frame around I would need to fabricate wheels for both roller plates and tie them together........but I don't need to move it for my purposes
Both have their advantages and disadvantages.....
