3360 lbs. 1.68 tons not including the weight of the body.

Weight rating for Military trailers is normally the approved weight off highway.

My M101 (3/4 ton) has 2 ratings on the info tag. 1500lbs off road, 2200 HWY. And I have greatly exceeded that many times. Probably 3000+ off road once Maybe there is even more beyond what the trailer can hold for the military but a certain level it will still preform at. Goes back to what the Jeep can pull again Just thinking out loud....

I should have clarified that mine is a Canadian version though. It's newer and heavier duty than the old WWII US versions. Still, for a tiny trailer, I totally abuse it and it keeps coming back. I originally bought it for wheeling, but quickly decided it was too heavy and loud for long trips. If you pull, then set up, then wheel, it's probably okay. If you are doing expedition style wheeling, I would leave it at home. For me, it was well worth the $600 bones I paid for it for how much use it gets hauling fire wood, gravel, soil, mortar, you name it, and it fits nicely next to the garage.

That's another criteria I did not consider and makes sense. I did not consider it as my M101 has a hinged tailgate and will never float. I alway forget the little ones double as boats.... Chris should get one
