    The trailers came in two colors, green and red. Bill Norris has the correct red color and the correct Arrow taillight in one of the above posts.
    My friend Norm was making the low bows for a while. This trailer, w/ the bows and w/ canvas isn't mine. The taillight, trailer w/ logo and the canvas covered tailgate chains is.

    Just curious - how do you know it's "correct"?

    I've never seen that logo on any of the mostly original trailers I have looked at
    is that really original ?
    looks modern to me

    Some of the guys on the trailer list found them on trailers that appeared unpainted.

    I have a repro of the logo on my trailer.

    I'm anal retentive and research stuff until it's kicked dead. Bill Norris is the same.
    The green color and Bantam logo are the way my Bantam came. I'm owner 3. Joe Hall, Vintage Wiring of Maine, repro'd the wiring harness from my trailer.
    I've talked to every owner, or a direct family member, of three of my jeeps and both my trailers.
    There were two logos. The other one is the only one I have seen. The one like I have I've seen on others.

    If any one in considering a trailer buy in the near future, I or another member might be talked into the second order on a package like this Canadian.
    It's on the high end of what I'd want to pay for sure, but if we all saved our pennies, who knows, maybe by Christmas.

    Kodiak, any idea where I can trace my serial number to find an approx date of production? Also need the male end of the wiring harness which would go on the vehicle towing the trailer, 4 round but, larger diameter than any of the more modern ones I have lying around. I dig that tail light too.

    Do a search on Cole Hershey. It's a company that does electrical connectors. Joe Hall may also have some at Vintage wiring of Maine. The original was a two prong. What I did w/ my CJ5 was hit a boat shop and buy a connector there. I think I have a few pics that I can post. You don't need to use all the wires either. I'll use this w/ my Spen but use the 100% correct 2 wire w/ the Bantam behind my 2A. I'll get some pics of my ball hitch extender to clear a drum pulley later. Sorry the mounted male portion is blurry.

    I went to the Bantam Trailer site, a few years back, and looked on the serial number list to get a date for my trailer.
