Loader's Blue Yonder- 2 Nov- First Outing Pic; LCG VI

Postby Loader » Fri Feb 18, 2011 2:54 pm

Well, after having the Bungalette on the road for over 5 years, we decided it was time to build number 2.

Picked up the frame today. It is 5x10 on 15 inch wheels.

Me too! That's a nice looking trailer you have there, Earl. What type of build - TD/TTT - and profile are you going to do?

Take care,
Tom

Thanks, got the trailer built in north Ft Worth (Jacksboro Highway). Looking at doing a modified Scad-a-Bout. Here's a link to another thread that has a link to Lens collection of scad photos as well as a link to kartvines scad resto.

I like that you got the big wheels and tires. Are you staying with the white painted modern wheels, or thinking of some retro wheels?

Maybe some red rims with some moon hubcaps. 8)

Well Ron, after a lot of back and forth, we decided to build a new tear instead of the standy (at least for now!) Doesn't mean the idea is dead for ever, just on hold as of now.

I second the "nice Looking Trailer"

does the tongue center brace extend back to the second cross member I can't tell from the picture.
sorta looks like it doesn't and a strap was welded from the crossmember to the brace.

again nice looking trailer.

If you expand that pic you can see that it is welded to the second cross member, not strapped.

Yep, it is indeed welded to the 2nd cross member. Thanks guys, it is a nice frame. The guy that put it together for me did a great job.

Well, we managed to get the floor built, black goo applied, mounted and floor tiles completed. Forgot how long it takes for the undercoating (Henry's 201) to dry.

Also started receiving parts; Fantastic Fan, windows, hatch hinge and a WFCO AC/DC power center. (WFCO and second window not pictured)

Next step, to get the walls cut.

Trailer name yet to be determined, plan on aviation theme of some sort for decor, blue (sides) and white (top) aluminum skin is on order.

Unlike me you're moving along real quick. I guess the 2nd time around is quicker. :)
