looking for cart dimensions

Postby Bushman5 » Sat 26 May, 2018 10:44 am

Will be building a cart like the one below , just curious if anyone has the rough dimensions of those carts? Looks like 4' wide x 3' - 4' long?? I'm only carrying 2 x 20 L Nato water cans, two Front Runner Wolf Pack cases and a Pelican ProGear Cooler, and fishing/camping gear. (note: the cart will be for short 2 - 5 days trip with access to food supplies and water in some parts, provincial campsites and other free camping areas in the forests. )

Hi Bushman you’d build it around whatever wheels your using. Those ones look like UMA II fat bike rims 26” x 4” .Poles look a bit flexy. The cart body looks quite strong - looks like they’ve sized theirs to suit those 20l drums.
