Thanks for the compliments. I've seen quite a few M416 conversions with roof top tents. I'd love to have one but the cost is a bit of a put off. Besides that I already have at least three other really nice tents and we are quite comfortable sleeping at ground level. We also own a portable camp kitchen and multiple camp stoves.Very impressive design and execution. I'm looking forward to seeing the completed trailer. You gonna put a RTT on it? Kitchen chuck box in it?
The plan is to have an aluminum top that can be easily removed. The top will fit into the existing stake pockets and latch down using the rolled rim of the tub. The top will have a cargo rack to secure folding chairs and perhaps a popup canopy. The rack will incorporate mounting provisions for my Pull-Pal, Axe and Shovel. Keeping the tub in one piece without a tail gate or other structural changes will keep the body strong. I intend to use it for a number of things including trail clean-ups
