These trailers are great. Makes a good combo with the 100. Pintle hitches aren't cheap but they work great off road. Think I should paint it River Rock, Olive drab, or new camo job?

Nice trailer. Post some pics when you decide on paint. Nice Belgian also. I have two Malinois - excellent cruiser accessories.

Have to convince the wife to go with matching- she votes for camo or olive drab. Matching wheels and tires are possible but doubtful as I don't like the way they stick out WAY beyond the fenders and adapter/spacers are required.

Exactly, match it, just make the 100 camo!!!!

But yeah, matching would be pretty sweet even if it was river rock instead of camo :)

these are the M416 specs:

Length OA: 9'-0 1/2"
Width OA: 5'-0 1/2"
Height OA: 3'-6"

Trailer weighs just under 1,200 lbs and has a hand brake. Can be easily rolled around by one man. Cargo area is approx 18" x 48" x 72", payload is listed (conservatively) at 500lbs and it floats.

This M416 tag is removed & scanned from my M416 trailer during rebuilt in 2003. It is no longer floatable because I cut the rear tub (w/ plasma cutter) to make a tailgate.

My 2000 TLC is Riverstone green but I decided to settled for black and white theme so it can matched any TLC.

Cheers,

I am going to paint mine to match the cruiser. Hope to be done with everything in the next few weeks.
