    Jeep Cherokee (XJ), LX470 (Land Cruiser) , or Something Else?

    XJ...there are a ton of them out there (makes them cheap), they have a good engine (the 4.0) and there is a ton of after market stuff for them so you can tweak as your budget allows. Also big enough to sleep in

    How do I start...

    Start out with some basic fly fishing/casting class at a local fly shop. Fly fishing is unique and some really enjoy and others try it out and do not. Using a fly shop will allow you to use their equipment for the casting class which also allows you to possibly tailor your casting style to the...

    Trailer Coupler

    I have max couplers on all three of my trailers and love it. I had an early one without the lip to catch the trailer side inside the jeep side and it made it a pain to reattach the trailer. The new model with the lip is super easy. I know there was a thread somewhere in here about their max...

    Help please: Which construction material/method will work best for my trailer goals?

    Aluminum over wood. Maybe get a welder to create an aluminum frame and then you can use pop rivets and seam sealer to attach siding/roof/walls. This would be lighter, water resistant, and unfortunately more expensive than wood or steel.

    Frame and Body Together or Separate?

    For what it is worth, the early Bantam and M100 trailers had the body welded to the frame although created separately. The next version, the M416 and its various configurations had bolt on bodies. I have no idea if that was more for ease of maintenance or if a problem was discovered. I currently...

    What kind of weight capacity does a M416 trailer capable of?

    I agree with grnhornetcusto regarding the tongue. Might suggest actually making it a 2 inch receiver tube instead and that will give you options for towing with a normal hitch, off road hitch (like a Max Coupler), or a pintal. I will try and dig up some photos.

    Camp rug?

    Got a piece of scrap fake grass at Lowes in a bin for about 10$. Its about 6 x 6. It works great as the landing area under the ladder of the RTT. Folds up when done and I throw a bungie around it. Wash it off with a hose when I get home.

    What kind of weight capacity does a M416 trailer capable of?

    Like all things military, they are way overbuilt for the rating. I have carried 18 bags of concrete (90lb bags) home from Lowes a few times and towed some loads through the Rubicon that were easily 900-1000 lbs. The military had that trailer (M762) platform beefed up to 3/4 ton with just some...

    Our little M416

    definitely a great starting block. Most have a ton of rust that is conveniently hidden with way too much paint by the military LOL. Gonna keep an eye on this one " )

    New trailer build using an Anchor Mountain Overland DIY kit

    Have you thought about adding a rear 2 inch receiver tube so you can add a bike rack or other accessories? I have used short ones through the rear crossmember on a few of my trailers. As I like to plan. "better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it LOL. My 2 cents
