Where did they go

Post by richard » February 26th, 2012, 11:00 am

Here they are.

I've been in The Netherlands on Friday to buy some Mutt parts. While being there I found this at a nearby place:

Image

M416 and M416A1 - split in two rows on each other. Double stacked in the front row (all M416), three times stacked in the back row (M416A1 and others). And you can see only less then half of what is on stock. All from an US Depot as the dealer told me. And there are some older models with the round fender, too.

The condition so far is good (new) with the exception of the trailers stored at the open side of this big hall. Rust is the companion of the weather.

Wow :shock:
Never seen an M416 with straight M151 rims. Wonder what year it was manufactured.
Thanks for sharing the pic Richard. What's the name of the dealership?

If he could get them here, the off road community would buy 'em up. Best off road trailer for them.

If you reduce the size of the pic, you can see in the top right side of the photo some of the M100 trailers (round fenders). If you're into MVs, Europe certainly seems to be the place to go. Oh to be wealthy & have a C-130 at my beck & call......

A lot of the ones on the top row appear to have surge brakes as well.

They look like modified MBTs or T3s. Notice the lack of grab handles on the corners.. :-)

Amazing! That is a lot of weight on the bottom row. I thought they were on racking but they are not.
