Towing a m100 or m416 with a 4cyl?

I'd like to pick up one of these trailers for camping. Anyone have any experience towing one with a 4cyl?

How much do these trailers weigh? Empty or full of cargo? What is the projected weight of the cargo? Where will you be towing it?

The m100 weighs about 560# and has a 1/4 ton capacity. The m416 weighs 610# and is a 3/4 ton capacity. I believe.

Is there a reason you're looking at military trailers vs. a conventional trailer? I'm assuming you want something off road worthy but if that's not the case, I'd get a conventional trailer. They're much lighter, have higher capacities and tow easier with a small truck.

I dont know if the 416 dumps or not, but the m101 series does. Why I want one over a pos conventional. Also much cheaper

Ok then... 3/4 ton is 1500 pounds. Your truck's towing capacity is 3500. To top it off, you have a manual transmission. This is an easy haul, you wont even feel it.

Just looked them up... BOTH are 1/4 ton.
M-101 is a 3/4 ton and weighs 1340 pounds. M101A3 is a 1-ton.

ALL of these are within Tacoma's hauling capacity, fully loaded.
