    Howdy,

    I really think I saw this one in here but I have looked for what seems like hours and can't find it.

    I was some kind of fiberglass topper fitted to a m416 trailer. Like a truck bed topper. Anyone got the link or info on it.

    It was just facinating that is all, I was curious to see it again.

    Thanks!

    God I hope not. That thing is just plain fugly!

    A nice, sealed flat top with hydraulic struts would look sweet on a 416 or 101.

    That is the one! I think it is interesting, it makes a lot of sense, you could hard mount things to the inside of the topper and still have room underneath for the gear.

    You can even see how it makes a bit of head room at the front for those over 6'.

    I don't think it "fits" the military style or look, but from a practical sense, it is probably a good idea. I can't see it costing more than some of the fancy fold out tents either, though it looks to be a bit lighter on space.

    Thanks for the link! Not even a vendor name huh? Wierd.

    How's this....is this better looking now. Or were you referring to the trailer top and not the tow vehicle ;)
    Pardon the hack paint shop pro job. I'm worse than a 2 year old fingerpainting.

    rezarf,
    IIRC this is a sleeper top. There's a post or two on either the Yahoo Bantamtrailer group or the M416 group.

    I love the trailer and tow rig; I was referring to the camper top on that bitch...it just looks very non-fitting. It might look better on a custom aluminum trailer. It's all good though...

    Trailer topper ideas

    You might be able to use a truck topper from a small step side pickup like a ranger splash or tacoma stepside. I read an article where a guy used a CanBak soft topper for a Taco and modified it to fit his 1/4t bantam trailer. Just a thought
