I just sold mine in Michigan for $250, all original with the Military lights, wheels and tires. The guy wants to restore it for an old Army Jeep his Father owns.

There is a lot of information on modifying military trailers on that forum.

Check out lone star jeep club. There is a member that did an awesome job on the whole thing. Looks awesome. Just search the forum and you'll find it listed under the 1/4 trailer or m416 can't remember.

The brand is car-top-tent.com. It is an older model. Its one step above a good ground tent, but not in the same class as the ARB, or other rooftop tents. But it is half the price.

Picked mine up off Craigslist for a great price.

We have slept in some high wind conditions with no issues.,
