The fiberglass Jeep-tub trailer kit that I've described in this thread has been on the market now for about 7 months, and the company that's marketing them has done very well with them so far (Dinoot Trailers - Dinoot Jeep Trailers).

Based on that success, I'm starting another trailer tub kit project - this one is patterned after the military M100/M416 trailers. The military-style trailers are very popular among the adventuring, overlanding and off-road crowd, but reasonably restorable original military examples are getting very hard to find, and the new versions of these trailers offered by trailer vendors are very expensive. So I've designed and will be building a fiberglass military-style tub kit that's intended to be very affordable and assembled in a home garage or driveway by a DIY-er.

I'm planning this tub kit to be molded in both a 6' version (same as the original military trailers) and 4'version (for a very budget-friendly installation on a Harbor Freight Mini Trailer frame.

I've done a few 1/4 scale concept models of the design:





I'll be starting a build thread for the full-scale fiberglass molds and prototype trailers soon, I'll post a link to it as soon as I start the thread.

Very impressive work! I'm kind of curious though, how do you protect yourself against a company stealing your design and building/ selling them without you? Are you going through the expense and time of patenting your designs?

For each of my projects I take intellectual property protection and other precautions as appropriate to my needs for that project.

I've started a build thread for the military trailer tub kit project, it's here: http://tventuring.com/trailerforum/thread-119.html.

It's on the TVenturing Trailer Adventure Forum, which seems like a really good match for the goals of this build (this isn't really a Jeep-specific project, these trailers would look nice behind Toyotas, 'Zuks, Subaru's, etc... ). If you're interested in this project, the thread linked to above is the place to follow the build.

It's been a little over a year since the Jeep-tub trailer kit has been on the market under the name "Dinoot". The company that's marketing the kit recently sent me a few photos of some of their customer's builds...
