    Are you going to skin the inside or outside?

    keep in mind an m416 has some simple stamped ribs in sheet that are only a 1/4" or so deep, and ive never seen anyone load a home made lid enough to buckle those gussets. with sheet tacked to the inside providing triangulation front to back, side to side, hes actually overkill.

    Been undecided on what to put on the sides.. Want metal but funds are a bit low. I ended up with the bead board plywood for free so that's what I am going with for now. Going to stain it black and seam seal the top and bottom gaps. Going to use 5/16th T-Nuts to attach the ply to the uprights

    Scott, I like it the way it is... with the natural wood color. It looks classy.

    I thought about it. But I decided to go black

    Finally got to work on this thing again. Installed the load bars today. I made the mounts so they wont get in the way when I install the soft trailer cover

    Finally got the tent mounted



    Not really liking the ladder that came with it so I may replace it with extra one Tepui sent me. Need to modify the bracket a tad but it will get me a ladder thats wider

    Looking good. I can't wait to get mine down and in the trailer too. CVT is looking good too.

    Are those stabilizers on the sides of the ladder?

    Will your tent be sitting high enough for use of the annex. I am moving my Cvt from my truck to an off road trailer this summer and I don't expect to be able to use the annex any more. I wish I could by a separate frame for it and use it as a stand alone.

    I plan on doing a similar move as well, but there appears to be a simple rack that can be built which can raise up a few feet to allow the annex use if it's needed. There are a few trailer builds out there.
