Did a 500 mile drive to collect an old army trailer on the weekend, and brought it home on Sunday after a 500 mile return trip.
The diesel towed it like a champ,and averagle 11L/100km (about 21mpg) on the home trip.
Will need some work, but I'm pretty pleased with it.
Appears to maybe be an ex Royal Australian Air Force unit which means it was probably painted yellow, which means if I go with yellow, it will match the JK!
Nice! Where did you find that? Gov't Surplus Auction?
Got it off ebay from a guy who purchased it with an FFR (Fitted For Radio) Land Rover, and as he already had 2 Army Land Rover trailers, this one was surplus.
Should be a fun, and reasonably easy restoration, although it appears to be a relatively unknown Australian army model trailer.
Who knows what I'll find under the layers of paint
Looks pretty sweet, and will make an awesome project. If you want ideas on what to do with it, search google for "M416 trailer build" to get some ideas. Different platform, but very similar, and the ideas will still apply. So many creative things you can do with the trailers, you'll have a good distraction for months to come.
