Mitch hanging out for some kayaking with his M-Series M416 trailer. Notice the cool rear hitch barbecue hauler he has added.

Do you take a Canoe with you on camping adventures?

Here is Ray's M-Series M416 trailer setup for hauling his canoe.

Tony's M-Series M416 trailer highlights a few Dinoot features.
First, need just a tub kit for your project, no problem! Tony supplied most of his own other parts like the tailgate.
Second, how you want it, is the right way! I put my tail lights on the sides below were it angles out, Tony had other ideas.

Tony's M-Series M416 trailer finished up and loaded up for its first trip, a 725 mile haul to Rausch Creek Park. His pictures highlight nicely you can cover a Dinoot many ways; he tarped his, above is the soft tonneau cover we offer and we show how you can make a hardcover.

Here is another "have it your way" example post. Notice how Brian set his fenders higher than most and trimmed them to the side panel shape. This always his M-Series M416 trailer to ride lower on big tires.

M-Series M416 trailer tub kits were designed to have the same 40.5" width that a M416 trailer has so they can be used as replacement tubs. This also makes them the same width as a Harbor Freight 40.5" x 48" frame kit. That makes them the perfect size for making a stubby M416, here is a thread on topic, How-to build a 4' M416 Trailer

Islandgirl recent posted about her M-Series M416 Trailer Build in Canada. It's a nice matching M-Series for her Jeep which is named "Bam Bam III", the trailer has been named "Pebbles".
