Looks like a nice little trailer. Did you check it out with the guys on the bantam site? I read a few threads saying some of the "knock offs" are worth more than the real ones.

Do you have the url for that site? I'm always looking to do some research on my little trailer. The only place I've found with any info about the knock off trailers is earllycj5.

Heres what it looks like behind the jeep without the tarp.




And with the tarp.

I think you need a certain number of posts before you can post pictures in the thread. However, if you were to upload the pics to a photo hosting site like photobucket, you could link us to those pictures.

Hi Scotch 740,

Where did you purchase your canvas top cover? Does it work well or does it flap significantly at highway speeds?

I found a 5' x 7' water resistant cotton tarp at mytarp.com for $17.63 and figured that was a good deal.

Thanks,

Brian in San Francisco

Not a collector just an avid Jeeper. Got fibreglas boat bows from West Marine, some 1" x 6' stiffeners from Lowe's, a heavy cotton duck canvas from Northern Tool, grommit kit, bungee cord and some sailor's knots. Cut plywood to fit the top taper and I camp in it offroad.

Nice! I also like the other trailer you have in the background of one of your photos. Is that going to be another project trailer too?
