“Up for sale is my M416 military trailer that has been modified into a off-road camping/adventure trailer. This started off as a ¼ ton M416 surplus trailer. It was completely stripped down and sandblasted. The Axle was replaced with a 3500 lb unit with 6 lug bolt pattern for Toyota and Chevrolet. The frame was extended in the front for a cooler rack, and two military style gas can mounts ( gas cans will not be included). Trailer still maintains the military pintle hitch. Body had the floor cut out and replaced with heavier steel. A custom lid was made which opens using a modified tailgate latch and heavy duty lift struts. On top of the trailer sits a large Serengeti Rooftop tent.(http://campinglab.com/serengeti01.html)

Tent is very heavy duty and pops up from the folded position. Includes a king size mattress inside. Tent comfortably sleeps 3-4 adults. Tent is in excellent shape, no rips or tears. Trailer s currently rolling on Toyota 17inch steelies with 255/55/17 BF Goodrich mud terrain tires with decent tread. Custom fenders styled off the originals were made to accommodate the larger tires. Trailer Lighting is with LEDs in the rear. There is a Pioneer tool rack on the back and a trailer receiver which can be used for a bike rack or other accessory. Trailer will also come with 3 unused 5 gallon military scepter water cans. Trailer has been painted using Sherwin Wiliams Sher-Kem paint and a bedliner paint kit will also be included for the interior( never got around to coating it, however it is painted.)

Trailer is currently registered in Florida as a homemade trailer and title/registration is in hand. Tows very well and probably weighs approximately 900lbs unloaded. This was a very fun project that went on a 3K mile road trip from South Florida up the Blue Ridge Parkway with absolutely no problems. It was used as a base camp for my hunting lease and garaged during the off season. I towed it using a Toyota 4runner with no problem at all.

I will include the heavy duty pintle hitch mount, and three unused water cans. (THE GREEN FUEL CANS ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE AUCTION!!)”
