This tent is available from the same company that sells the trailer kit: Roof Top Tents turn your car , truck or trailer into a Tent Topped Camping Trailer!



Later this summer they're also going to release a new fiberglass military-style tub kit, here's a few photos...

Found this one in Ohio M416

I just finished the overhauling on it..... I found it on Craigslist, do a search around the cities near you. They are out there...

Good Luck

Patrick H The tub is shallow. I'm going to build some side boards for it. The top is really cool. I'm thinking about making some canvas side panels that will snap on when the top is open to make a sleeping quarters.

ZombieResponseTeam Awesome trailer. Top adds some depth to the shallow tub. I've been looking at lots of them and I'd rather have yours. Looks like it would track with the jeep which would be great when we have snow.

There is a Bantam on cl in my area for $350 but its sorely rusted.

Patrick H Here's my 1951 Ben Hur.




It also has this hinged cover, but I haven't repainted it yet.

With wheel spacers you can often move the wheel out far enough so it can fit on the hub.

You see them occasionally on this site:

Government Surplus Auctions at Government Liquidation

The last M416's I saw go through went for around $400.00, and were in really nasty condition...

UnlimitedLJ04 buy a welder & learn to use it. use google sketchup (or CAD software of your choice) to make a design. buy some steel & start putting it together.

Dusty Rhodes Go to G503.com then forums, they have a section on the trailers you mention. I have a Bantam Civilian trailer. Same as the Military one but it has no brakes, no Lunette ring but it has a tailgate. Mine has two of the desireable "Combat Rims". I like it a lot. I can move it by myself even with a couple hundred pounds in it. Including rolling it up my driveway.

Be advised they are very hard to back up and distance unless you have lots of practice. The short tongue and short distance from hitch to axle makes it a very difficult challenge. But the good news is it pulls and tracks like nothing is there. I like mine alot.

Feel free to PM me if you have any questions. I also have the original military manual for the M-100.
