JF has some good ones, however my favorite offroad trailer I've found so far was made for an FJ-40( i mean, it is DAMN nice. I'll post pictures if anyone is interested).

Check out expeditionportal.com They catagorize theif forum per model(ford, chevy, Jeep, etc). but most everything there is designed for expo'ing. It's a good site.

Here is a great older thread with a lot of pictures.

I think one of the cheapest ways to get into this is by starting with a M101 Cargo Trailer. The M101CDN trailer used by the Canadian Army was built by Iltis, which I believe is a military division of Volkswagen. Ive seen them advertised for $500.00 (Group buy!!!) too bad they're sold out.

I found this build thread a while from someone on this forum. I think they did a remarkable job.

The M101CDN 1/4 ton trailer was actually manufactured by DEW engineering in 1992.It is a nearly identicle copy of the US M416 from the '60s
It was for the Canadian Iltis "jeep" that was licence built by Bombardier for the Canadian Army. The original Iltis was made in Germany by Volkswagen for the German Army.The Germans used a different trailer.

Not to be confused with the US M101 trailer that was a larger, heavier 3/4 ton unit for the M37 Dodge 3/4 ton

Cool, almost looks like a Pikes Peak type trailer.

i did get a bit of inspiration off of the original pikes peak trailer build thread... but i didn't build the original trailer... just modified it... added the tool boxes, lifted it... cleaned it up... added some armor... that type of stuff... it's probably not going to be as extreme as the pikes peak units... but something like them... (still need it for hauling trash on the weekends... lol...)

I am not sure but I think if you look around on Craigslist you can find someone who created a trailer from a 40's-50's pickup. Those were stepside beds for the most part. Find a shrotbox type and I think you would have a nsmall nice looking trailer for pretty cheap. I am not sure of the track width.

one... they have to be easy to back up... or unhook and move by hand (so balance is a biggy)
two... they have to have enough ground clearance to keep from dragging everywhere...
three... they have to be stout enough that they don't fall apart if they get banged up on something... you'll probably end up dragging it over at least one rock...
four... it has to be light enough that it won't get so hung up on something that you can't move it... at all... by hand... or at least with a handyman jack...
