The top row would be the anchor for the roll bar, but I'm not sure what the lower row would be. I removed mine and filled in the holes

Actually the bottom row (4 torx heads) are for the roll bar, the top row appear to be snaps, probably for a soft top.....

In my 78 the top row is roll bar. Where those lower holes are is below the fender well so too low for the bar. My snaps are fixed to the ridge all the way around

I think that's pretty cool. I don't think it's practical for someone needing a "real" trailer, but it was done well. It would be well served if it had a bench seat in it, and you hauled someone on a nice trail... IMO.

My 76': you can clearly see the 4 torx heads that secure the roll bar just like the one in the ad....minus the soft top snaps. The torx heads are right at teh base of the fender well, not below it.

My '79 does have those 4 holes, although they weren't torx when I got it. They are higher up along the fender, as in the above pic that Lee posted.

There was a design change on the rollbar during the 1979 production. Early production had the four bolts.

Yes it does look well done. I would be worried that the weight distribution is all wrong because the axle is too far back. You'd be putting much more weight on the tow vehicle and less on the trailer axle.

For $7,500 the seller is going to have to find a rare buyer who'll pay that price for the novelty, however well done.

That shipping is about the same as advance adapters, they will throw a 10 ounce part in a flat rate box and charge $26 in shipping

I can almost accept having either an overpriced part or overpriced shipping, but not both. $26 for a flat rate box is robbery considering that the largest flat rate box is about $16 and will hold a well-paded carburetor, a pair of boots, or other similar sized thing, up to something like 70 pounds maximum.
