Hey guys, I'm pretty new to this part of the Jeepin world, and I have been considering a trailer for my YJ. I really have no great preference on model and I am not sure what prices are running. I did find a restored trailer at M416 Military Trailer 60's Vietnam Vintage ~M14 Jeep Trailer ~Restored that looked pretty nice, however I would rather do the work myself. What suggestions would y'all have? Thanks!
I guess I put this in the wrong section , please feel free to move it

This section's fine.
Military Jeep 1/4 ton trailers (Bantam, MBT, M-100, M-416) are great for off-roading. That trailer you have linked looks great but unless you are getting it for the collector's value, you can get them in a little worse shape but lots cheaper.
As a frame of reference, I picked up a '42 Willys MBT trailer for $350 a couple of years ago. It was in bad shape and not very original but it serves my purposes well.
Wow! Very nice, but very expensive. I picked up mine for about $450 two weeks ago. It is fun doing the work myself. The thread just after this was for mine. It took about 6 mos of waiting and searching CL almost daily, but well worth it.
