Regrettably I have to sell my 1965 Steven's M416-B1 trailer. I have had this trailer for over 2 years now. I have not registered this trailer as of yet because I have been gone so much but planning on registering the trailer in the state of Florida. The trailer came from the West Coast and I hauled it on it's two wheels with my Jeep all the way to Florida.
The good...it has only surface rust. I have not found any cancer through any where unless it's in the under carriage which I have not inspected yet but will as soon as I return back home. It comes with the Mighty Mite wheels as it should PLUS a spare wheel. The Former PO installed civilian tires on the military rims. It did rolled nicely down the freeway in the dead of winter. This trailer has a title issued by the state of Colorado and it does have a data plate with a serial number on it.
The bad...The former - former PO cut out a tailgate on it which by the looks of it can be welded back up and it will look water tight again, if that's what you want. The former PO took it to a professional fabricator who fixed the cut out tailgate. You would have to see it with your own eyes to appreciate. It does not have the M416 safety chains at the present time. You can get them here..http://armysurpluswarehouse.com/militar ... -set-of-2/. for $25 dollars. The electrical wiring is fried and will need to be replaced. Does not have taillights at the present time.
This trailer will be a PERFECT candidate for a military restoration if that's what you prefer. I hate to sell it but I have to a this point. I paid $1800 and I would like to ask for the same since I didn't do anything to this trailer but store it. So my asking price is pretty much firm. Any questions, please PM me or email me. I'm located in Southern Florida. The contact information is below...
