    I bought an older m101a1 a few years ago and turned it into a camping trailer for my by-yearly camping trip with some keeping buddies. I used some troop seats I scored for free for the sides and made my own bows out of conduit. Small tool box on the front hold gear and a battery. Ammo can on the fender well holds light switch, charging port, and the fuse block. The first four seats fold down and allow for a sleeping platform (I’m short lol). I lightened it up every way possible and have pulled it a few years with the 74 cj5 I had. You just had to pay very good attention to your speed and other people! In a few weeks I’ll be pulling it with the wife’s jku. The tarp is starting to leak and I can’t seem to find any new replacements so I’ve been looking at vintage camper tops are maybe one of the old small slide in campers. Anyone tried this yet?

    I haven't tried it but I've certainly tossed different ideas around similar to yours. Obviously weight is a concern, seems like just an aluminum topper would be your best bet. That looks to me like an Alaskan camper in the picture.
