Default M416 Trailer with Mombasa Roof Top Tent - Just Purchased

Hey everybody,
I added a third row seat to my four door JK and decided that I needed a trailer to tow all the gear now for the family of five. Just picked up this little beauty. It is a M416 with a Mombasa roof top tent. The previous owner took great care of it and had a custom top built for it that can be opened even with the tent deployed. After a couple of camping trips I plan to have the rig sandblasted, primered and repainted camo style. Will probably also add a propane tank, water and gasonline brackets to it. Then I'll try and mount the spare tire and a small bbq to it.

And the Jeep it is going to ride behind:

I've wanted to do both, add a single jump seat and get a trailer for the same purpose.

I'd like to see both, if you don't mind.

I don't have any pics of the Jeep with the 3rd row seat, but will add some when I get my Jeep back next week.

That's what were trying to do with an old Willy's trailer we adopted from my father-in-law! Thanks for sharing the pics and hope to see it some time on the trails!

I was a little jealous when I saw your trailer and then really jealous when I saw your Jeep. Man, you have got a great setup!
