M416 if anyone can make my up a exact match of the bed but with 1x1x1/8" square tube around the railing instead of round tube ill keep it togther.. because i do plan on modifing the tub. i plan on eventually adding a tailgate and possibly (not set in stone) a side exiting sliding drawer.. And full lid..

honestly, i'd start from scratch, it's easier than you realize if you are thinking of making that many mods to the trailer. The strength of something like the m416 is more in the stamping/shape of the tub, and once you start altering that, well, it changes things a bit.

just my .02

Yeah, just sell it to me so I can throw my RTT on top and then build yourself one from scratch

I've never experienced any wobble with my M101a's pintle? Towed it for 1000's of miles of HWY and offroad. Maybe its the extra weight? It sure does bounce around though until I get at least a 1000 pounds in it.

I would not sererate that trailer either. Sell it to someone for its current market value and start your new trailer from scratch.

Adding to my last post. I noticed yesterday the m416 only weighs like 500lbs or so. And it was empty. And it was getting death wabble near the parrina factory which the roads are crap and I was in the far right lane with the k-rail so I also had the turbilance. I'm sure if it's loaded it won't bang around.
