Re: OT-Pic\'s of my M416 trailer

Forgive my ignorance of the trailer. but what size wheels does it have? and bolt pattern? I wouldnt mind having one of those to pull behind the Jeep on camping trips! How much did you give if you dont mind me asking? thanks, Wade

Re: OT-Pic\'s of my M416 trailer

Hi Wade, the wheels are 7.00 x 16's (16" wheels). I think the bolt pattern is standard CJ 5 on 5.5". I paid $450 for it and from what I've seen of these trailers that's not too bad for one with no rust through. The bottom of the box is a bit wavy from carrying heavy loads, but the original blackout lights and wiring was all intact, and it is pretty straight. Check out local military vehicle shows for them.

Re: OT-Pic\'s of my M416 trailer

I think I seen one the other day for sale. It was an old military trailer. about the same size as yours. Did they make many sizes? I have seen some that are huge. 2 wheeled but big enough to be pulled with a tank! ok maybe just a Duece and a half. I may go by and check it out. The wife would just love me having another trailer! Thanks, Wade

Re: OT-Pic\'s of my M416 trailer

There are a few sizes, but only the 1/4 ton's look like this. They made 3/4 ton trailers to be pulled behind M37's (Power Wagons) and Hummers and larger ones (Ton and a half I think) to be pulled behind the 2 1/2 ton trucks. Those looked more like normal square sided trailers with wood stake sides on them. They all seem to go for about the same prices with the M416's being on the higher side 'cause all of us with Jeeps want them!

Re: OT-Pic\'s of my M416 trailer

Do you use the pindle (sp?)system or do you another type of hitch to connect to your Jeep? Do you use a class II or III on your Jeep to pull this trailer?
Nice Job!

Re: OT-Pic\'s of my M416 trailer

I'm going to use the stock pintle (ring) hitch. The tongue on the trailer spins 360 degrees so the trailer articulation is going to be awsome! The receiver on my Jeep is part of the rear bumper on my AFW frame and is rated for 1000 pounds. The trailer will not have that much in it, probably just camping equiptment &amp; cooler so I can drop the trailer at camp and just wheel with the essentials in the Jeep for day rides. It will be able to come along though if we wheel/camp/wheel/camp at different locations.

Mike34 has the earlier Bantam trailer. They are harder to come by as they are older. Very cool painted to match the Jeep! I'm going to semi-resto mine in the three color cammo that it was painted by the military unit that had it last.
