M416 trailer value

A quick search shows that there are specimens in various states of repair/disrepair that have sold here for $1700-950.

I have a lead on one that has been sitting outside for at least the last 20 years and looks kinda like hell. He's pretty proud of it because it's got a tailgate, which does seem to be rare, but for what he's asking I don't think it justifies the rarity. The bed seems solid but not a speck of paint in that department. The rest of it is about half paint and half rust.

Any other areas I should be looking at? Do these all have brakes that I should be in investigating? I have seen others with at least a hand brake.

He doesn't have a title and said that was standard with military trailers. Should I look for decommission type papers?

Thanks
Jeff

My m416 came from the Navy and it has a title. Not sure about that story. It was also rock solid without a spec of rust and has an uncut bed ( they shouldnt have tailgates because they were made to float) for about half what he is looking to get for that one.

Tailgate devalues it, rust devalues it, handbarake removal and or lunette removal devalue it. sounds like a $300-400 trailer. Most of these end up titled as home builts depending on what state they originally got titled in. Many states dont title trailers.

He wants $1500!

Sounds like he's not quite inline with the market on this one. I knew it seemed high, but maybe it was just him that was high.

thats what trailers that have been completely gone through (sand blasted to bare metal etc ) and refurbished cost.

The M416 (American) 1/4 trailers did not come with a tailgate, so that one's been cut which makes it less valuable, not more. If it's in good condition, he's lucky to get $600-$900 for it.

The Canadian M-101A 1/4 ton trailers are essentially the same, but they tend to command a much higher price because they are much newer and usually found in better condition. They usually go for $1500 or more.

I bought an M416 last year for $1,100. It was in pretty good condition and no hacked in tailgate. I felt the price was high but it also came with new tires, an extra set of wheels and tubes, new shocks still in box, new id plates, all new reflectors still in boxes, a cover that was never used, and a complete owners manual. The guy was getting set to do a restore and collected all the parts but got distracted with a bigger project. I think you could get a decent one for under $800. I saw some junkers for $300.

Mine is also titled as a home built.

M101A1 and others

This is my first post here. I don't own a D90 but the site has all kinds stuff about expeditions and off road travel.

Good discussion on trailers. I own a M101A1 (they're actually 3/4 ton) that was professionally modified in Texas. Apparentlly about a dozen or so of these were sand blasted, had screw jacks installed, five trailer hitches installed (2 each side and on on the back), powdercoated black, a custom steamlined canvas installed as well as Hummer wheels. I bought mine for a thousand. If you can find one, they're a real buy.

I picked mine up 2 years ago in great shape. Needed to change the lights (Va troopers request) and mounted a rack for my RTT. Only $ 500.00, and an hour drive to pick up. This guy is way outta line.
