Is that bed a M101 trailer tub? You mentioned that you wished you narrowed the wheel well tubs more. Please elaborate.

Yes he does, I looked in his stats and found out it was a M101 trailer, and yes as it was mentioned they don't have 48" between the wheel wells. I was looking to find out if he did open them up.

M101A2. The A3 has HMMVW style wheels and is wider. I cut 1.5" out of each side and welded it back closed.

Stock it has exactly 48" between them, so a 48" thing won't fit because it needs clearance. It was challenging to get the camper in there straight.

And because it's a shortbed camper the weight was all wonky until I filled the water tank, than it was much better.

Is that a technical term?

When I use terms like "discrete" everyone loses it and goes off googling and what not, I'm trying to keep it GL4x4 friendly
