How did you attach the battery boxes to the frame? I am also changing to 2 6 volt batteries to my Scamp, but not sure how to make sure the boxes are secure.

I just inst. 2 6v batteries to my S-16. I used this box. Century Plastics: White Heavy Duty Battery Box - (part#: GCE-G)
I made a frame to hold the box out of 1.5 angle to set the box in. I then set the box frame on the frame rails. Then ran long bolts down to the orig. battery support bars in case I did not want to keep the dual 6 volt batteries.
I plan to extend legs up from the battery box frame to put a platform on top for a generator or bike racks. I will weld the box frame it to the trailer frame if I do that.

Hi Linda, I drilled a hole in each of the four corners of the battery boxes. I then matched up the holes in the boxes with the angle iron on drilled through it. I used 1/4 stainless bolts with large washers on top and lock washers with nylock nuts on the bottom. It is super secure.

Box Mount


When mounting a box for the group 27 battery
on my Trillium I decided to use aluminum angle
to make a simple frame for the box to sit it.
Not being a welder I find aluminum much easier
to work with than steel angle. The corners of the
frame are bolted together and the whole thing is
bolted to the old stock steel angle mounting that
the old group 24 battery box was bolted to. The
strap secures things well. Hope this helps someone?
