Scad-A-Bout Profile

Postby Loader » Tue Feb 15, 2011 2:27 pm

Been searching the board, and see this questions was asked a few years back however, I didn't find the info I was looking for.

Does anyone have a good profile photo or measurements for a Scad-A-Bout? I does look pretty straight forward (two relatively simple radius), but if someone has a drawing, that would sure help.

Thanks
Earl & Kerry

Here's all my shots of Scad-a-Bouts including a very rare (1 of only 3 made) 2 story Scad-a-Bouts.

They are very similar to a Benroy only with 13" wheels.

Thanks for the link Len and Auntie M. I have been I have been reviewing kartvines resto.

Len, did you build one? I thought I saw some older posts where you were discussing it.

James, yep, we are going to build number 2. I meet with the welder to finalize the trailer on Friday, should have it in about 2 weeks or so. Going to build a Scad-a-bout type profile, however will be modified scad, as I plan to go 5x10 with 15 inch wheels.

Once things get going I'll start my build thread.

My "Bear Bonze" line was Loosely based on the Scad-a-Bout mainly because of the small wheels that came on the Manufactured frame I use.

Looks great Len, thanks for posting.


James, is your conversion posted in the Cargo section? I'm going to have to go look for it.

I will be happy to help answer any questions that you may have as you can see I made more than my share of mistakes, but the overall out come was a solid little trailer, there are much more talent out there than me, but none the less I am open to offer suggestions if asked.
