I know Papa Wes has a m416, but is anyone else running a small "chase" trailer for expedition/camping type stuff?

I would love to ask a few questions as i am in the begining stages of building, I have thread over on mud. But some local help might come in handy.

Thanks-

Drew

Oh yeah, I forgot about your trailer Ige.

I was wondering what your trailer weighs empty? Got any ideas?

yeah, but we're all rocket scientists, so we can convert that to layman's. :hill:

Drew, I've got a 5x11 utility trailer you can borrow and mess around with some time.. I pull it with the 80 though- never tried with the 40 (40 doesn't have a receiver) but I bet it'd do it ok. Probably 600 pounds empty? Maybe you'll get lucky and get to help someone move or something, would be a good trial.. anyway let me know if you want to mess with it.

Take a trip to Australia. I think everyone there owns a small utility trailer and every car, big or small has a hitch.
