I got the hinges from Mcmaster-Carr. I'm not sure what the part number is.

The sides are pretty sturdy.

hey nice trailer . you really didnt say what you are gonna be using thre trailer for.. are you going to be putting a lid on it some day? i am no expert, but i think you may find that you are gonna get some real flex on the trailer sides now.. i am not sure how i would beef it up .. i used 2'' sq to frame my opening and tied it right into the frame. the lid and tent weigh almost 300 lbs .. no flex

it's a trailer, why do you need a lid? sorry, i use my trailer for haulin stuff like coal, firewood, junkyard parts, etc. not yuppy stuff, and if i took it on a trail and hauled stuff for campin i'd just strap a couple tarps on it. no need for a lid. just sayin.

^ A pop up camper won't fair well on many of the trails people ride. I am a big fan of the expedition style trailers. It is the perfect combination of storage, comfort, and compact manuverability.

no need to get snarky.. i was just trying to help.. i have seen many of these trailers with tailgates cut into them.. some better than others , if you dont reinforce the opening, the sides are gonna flex on you.. especially if its loaded with stuff.. and modifying a pop up is ok but not for me.. most are too wide to pull down a tight trail.. mine will go anywhere

thanks i think it cool too.. if you need any info on the 416's go to the trailer section on expedition portals .. there is a ton of knowledge there .. trailers built for everything from utility to expedition style.. i had a pop up for 10 years but could not take it anywhere near the places i take this one.. and if i need to, the lid and tent can be removed so i can use it to haul stuff

That is a gorgeous rig. It has both utility and appealing appearance. Well done.

Did you keep the pintle, or replace with a standard trailer tongue? Please post some pix of the front of the trailer, looking backwards.

oh yeah !! i kept the pintle for sure,, dont believe what you hear about them, mine rarely makes any noise at all , only when off road, and then the jeep is noisey anyway,, you wouldnt hear it ,, some peeps are replacing the pintle with some real nice and expensive articulating hitches, , there are several brands on the market and i have seen too many fail !! i have never personally heard of a pintle hitch failing,, pics from the front ,looking back howz this
