Picked up an M416 a couple months ago and have put a little work into it. I plan on throwing 35’s on it at some point. Already have the wheels and tires, just need to flip the leaf spring on top of the axle. Here’s a before and after...so far.

I started yet another project that is over my pay grade. After much deliberation I started building a teardrop trailer. I can't swallow the price for some of these prebuilt trailers so hopefully this way I can piece it together when funds are available.
I think I have most of the basic design figured out.

I started work on the rear hatch as more of a proof of concept. Luckily everything went together well so far. Now I can order the plywood for the skin.

If anyone has built there own trailer please chime in with any words of wisdom. I'm going to need all the help I can get.

Marine grade plywood?...

Yes. Double the price but because I'm unfamiliar with some of the fabrication techniques I want the added water resistence incase of a minor leak.

You might want to check into mahogany ply...back in the day, I built a 16’ Twin hull power cat, and we used 1/8” mahogany ply strips with epoxy resin...they used waterproof glue between plies and the were no knots...that was over 40 years ago, so not sure if it’s the same. Back then, the cost was comparable, and it looked beautiful...
