    The Bantam tubs were welded to frame cross rails underneath and stitch welded along the lower tub lip to outer frame. The 416 tubs bolt to the frame for easier removal. I also believe the 416 tubs are wider than the Bantam.

    I guess half my work is done by having no tub on the Bantam trailer. :) :)

    They list 60" vs. 56 for the bantam for overall width but I believe that's fenders. Interior floor width for both lists as 38"
