A few months ago I finally found & bought an M416 trailer. My joy was short lived when I discovered the interior dimensions were not 4x6 feet as I always believed.
The primary purpose for this trailer was camping / off road adventures but also to use it as a utility trailer allowing me to haul an occasisonal sheet of plywood etc..
After learning the size discrepency I decided to build one. I copied the design of the military trailer but used 16 ga steel for the body & 1/8 thick tube for the frame. The tongue is 1/4 2x3 channel.
Both welded & aircraft rivets. The bed, front wall & inside tailgate are 1/8 diamond plate.
The bed inside is 48 1/2 wide by 72 1/2 long. With the tailgate down, it is just over 8 long. Perfect for hauling anything I want!
The M416 weighs 602lbs and mine weighs in at exactly 700lbs. Not bad considering how much stronger it is.
The top-rails are 1x1x 1/8 square tube because I didnt have any way to form the round edge.
The tongue has a 2 receiver tube with accommodates either a 2 ball coupler or a lunette ring for a pintle hook.
Axle is rated at 3500lbs, hubs at 5,000lbs with a 5 on 5.5 bolt pattern to match my Jeeps. The hitch is 5,000 and 15,000 lb capacity.
All the lighting is LED.
Im extremely pleased with the way it turned out & may go into production making more. Next time Ill try square fenders.

Nice trailer Jeff,

Im working on a expedition trailer build, still working on the rack so I can mount my roof top tent but shes got pressurized water, 2000w inverter/20amp solor charger and a 200ah battery.

I look forward to seeing pictures of the whole thing set up. I've see a couple of them on the newer jeeps with that set up and one on a trailer
