building your own M416 trailer? pics?
Ok, the plan is to build a M416 style trailer. Jeepwife and I have a float trip to go on in a month and the Jeep just dont have enough room to back all the gear in. It will fit with just us but if anyone wants to ride along it is either on the hood or hangin off the rear tire carrier! [img]images/graemlins/chairfall.gif[/img]
I done a search and found the original owners manual for the M416 in Adobe format. I downloaded it and will use that for a few key measurments.
A few mods I will be making is that I will use a rear AMC 20 for the axle and some 2" wide 4" lift springs for the suspension. I plan to run 33's on the trailer to match the Jeepwife's "little" Jeep. I plan to use 2"x3" tubing for the frame and probably 14 or 16ga. for the "tub".
Anyone have any pics of their camping trailers? Any ideas appreciated. Thanks, Wade
