The Two-Story Scad-A-Bout

Filed under: Camping,Teardrops & Tiny Trailers — Laura Moncur @ 8:00 am

The biggest complaint I hear about teardrop trailers (after claustrophobia) is, “Where do the kids sleep?” Until I found this recent teardrop, the answer was, “The kids sleep in a tent.” Yesterday, I found this teardrop trailer on Google Images. It’s the Two-Story Scad-A-Bout.

They were built in the 60s and were meant to sleep parents and the kids. Technically, the kids are still in a tent, but it’s on top of your trailer, so it’s a little warmer.

I like how it has an awning that can attach to the top for shade.

I can’t find out much information about these trailers, so I don’t think many exist on the road today, but if you’re making your own, you could certainly borrow from this design to create a teardrop trailer that can sleep Mom, Dad AND a couple of kids.

  2. Nice, I bought a scad a bout in Las Vegas for $100. Had to evict chickens and rabbits out of it. The person that used it, banged it up prity bad. I managed to add on to the front and back, in order to restore it. Completely had to do all the inside. Floor and sides inside, were well preserved. I saw your two level, and like what you have done to it. Great Job. Ray
