Saw a couple of these at a surplus store in Trenton, TN for $350 + Tax.



Was thinking you could possibly turn one into a camper/trail/pop-up trailer or something like that. They are heavy duty but weigh a ton unless you do some gutting out.

I like the M416. The Bantam is also very nice. Anything else is just a bit too heavy.

That price is really attractive. What was the name of the surplus store? I might have to drop by. How heavy would you say it is?

2500 lbs as it sits. Its a 1 1/2 ton trailer.

The M116 (1100lbs) & M101A1 (1350lbs) are 3/4 ton trailers. Look like better options and there are quite a few on the website I listed. I have the info on the surplus store at my office if your still interested. I can get it to you in the am.

Thanks, that would be great. That is pretty dang beefy. I guess you would use a pintle hook to trailer that? Wonder what size it should be.

If anyone else is crazy like me here is a good site to get old military trailers:

Government Surplus Auctions at Government Liquidation

From what I saw the following would be good candidates also:

M116
M101A1
Great. Another web site to waste hours and hours of my valuable time. What do you think my wife would say if I bought a gently used 6 x 6? Could I put all of my things in it and still have a place to sleep?:cheers:

Bobkid, you're terrible. That site is now bookmarked and I find myself working with strange math in my head.
