    Xjmans M416 trailer

    Post by xjman88 on Mon Jul 29, 2013 6:38 pm

    Like i need another project but found an M416 trailer in actual decent for 75.00. Had to drive an hour plus to pick it up. It is well worth the trip. Aside from a few rust spots in the bed and needing new tires due to dry rot, the trailer is in nice shape. I will have pics up later tonight. I do have a thread started over on the Expo Portal. Feel free to check it out.

    I saw it better when I approached you and we were stuck in traffic. I wanted to stop and say hi at the pumps but I had to get home, I had been gone since 4:30am and the dog needed a walk. Thanks for the complement on the rig. Yours looks great in person, but it has the wrong windshield banner....Razz

    I just picked up a M416 that is also in great shape, actually no rust, do you plan on using as is or rebuilding the whole trailer?

    Cool, I was thinking about changing the axle so I can use the same spare tire on the trailer as on the jeep. I want to put a rooftop tent on so i am looking to build/purchase/find some type of telescoping support poles so I can raise and lower the tent depending if I am at camp or traveling down the road.
