The condition of the sale was that the trailer must go with the Jeep. So we drove 23 out of the last 33 hours to pick it up and haul everything home. The trailer is 99% custom/hand built (he was a farm equipment machinist/builder), minus the Jeep tailgate and has a super cool articulating hitch to hook to the Jeep the guy flew home in his carry on luggage from Australia a few years back. He painted the trailer and the fenders to match the Rubihara paint scheme and the top is aircraft aluminum that he hand riveted to put together (his other hobby was flying planes and he had a Piper Cub PA-11 Special). I wasn't very excited about having to take all since I just wanted the Jeep and haven't done overlanding, but it have changed my mind and decided it is super cool and I'm glad I decided to make the purchase and buy it all.

Nice find! I've got a similar trailer and a hard lid is on the winter to-do list. Could you share a photo of the lid's underside when you get a chance? I've got a lot of aluminum lying around and I'm really digging that look.

Thanks
