The sight of your Meadowbrook makes my heart speed up. So many miles in between. The smaller wooden one and breaking cart hold great appeal as well.

The smaller cart I made myself, it is 95% finished. I have a video of how to make it and the parts list of of what parts to buy from Witmers Chach shop , if you are interested. I have about $800 in the cart and 19 years.
50% of the money is in the wheels and axel with the flush hubs.

carts

Hiya how are you and thay are great little carts and you have them barn stored which is good to.
Ill have to get the two out of my garage at home for a spring clean as well.
Pardon me for asking what size was your rug.
As quincy is 6'9-7'0 foot.
Tc for your new cart I think some quick releases would benifit your new 4 wheeler I got some for quincy.
Also I admire you for constructing the little 2 wheeler it looks fantastic.
Did you chose a colour for your new cart how about british raceing green amd lined in yellow and black.

Michael, the rug is huge it is over 100 inches, My boy Sam the Clydesdale was over 19,1 hands. I will never get a horse that big again, he just never stopped growing.
I do need the quick releases, I have never used them before. Buy the people that use them love them.
I also need to get the tillbury tugs for the new cart shafts.
I have not chosen a color yet, maybe hunter green with black pinstripes or
Burgandy with cream colored pinstripes.

I have been corresponding with a lady who has a Viceroy for sale which needs new wheels. It's about a 1960 model. It will cost almost $1000 for Jerald wheels altho she said the much cheaper easy entry will will work. This would bring the wheels costs down to about $400. I

I have been corresponding with a lady who's asking $500 for a Devon Viceroy that needs new wheels. Jerald wheels, complete, will run about $1000 for 4. She says the easy entry ones will work and cost about $400 complete and delivered. The cart is about 4 hrs away so I can't just pop over and have a look. It's a 60's model and has always been shedded. Do you think the easy entry wheels will be alright?

I absolutely LOVE the Meadowbrook cart. Can I ask what you don't like about that style cart? What made you decide to trade everything in for your new delux buggy?

I can't remember what size horse you have. For your first vehicle, if this is, I would recomend a cart.

If I am correct the vicerots are more of a vehicle made for the ring, like for saddlebreads and roadsterponies, A viceroy won't hold up cross country and through fields and such. The wire wheels don't hold up being torqued.
For $1000 you should be able to get an easy entry cart. Those are great, east to get in and out and you can get them with better wheels.
I even think a great manufacturer is in Canada somewhere. I will find that name for you.

It all depends on what kind of driving you will be doing.
My personal opinion is that viceroys are show carts only and are too delicate for much everyday use.
