1953 M100 trailer value

So I found a 1953 M100 on CL for $750. The ad says it has slight surface rust and the tires are cracked but do hold air. Otherwise its in good condition. Sound like a good deal? I would like a small trailer and have been trying to find an M416 but round here theyre all rustbuckets going for $1k+.

Is there much difference between a M100 and a M416> I googled and in the pics they look the same

chances are you won't find a trailer in good shape for much less than $700. The prices have sky rocketed and are holding. Not much difference between the 416 and the M100 to the casual observer. Same size, differences are the M100 has man handles on the four corners, different number of tie down hooks on the sides, different park brake handle, different fenders and wheels.
I think there was a difference in the drain holes but can't remember what it was.
Offer cash in hand and see what the seller might let it go for.

This is true. For your purpose, either trailer would do.

I found a couple discussions on the differences here and here.

I have a 1951 M-100 that I bought a few months ago. I wasn't looking for one but when I heard a guy on my local radio station's call-in "Tradin' Post" show say "I have an old Army ammo trailer that you pull behind a Jeep that I'd like to get $150 out of" my ears perked up in a hurry. I called the guy and 2 hours later was the proud owner of a 60 year old trailer!

Mine's not perfect. The brake handle and landing leg are rusted and there's some rust through along parts of the tub. Nothing that can't be fixed though, once I have some spare time.

If the trailer you're looking at still has the lunette on it (the big ring on the hitch) be sure to budget for a pintle hitch for your Jeep. Buy one that will raise the trailer tongue enough that it sits fairly level behind your Jeep but still lets your tailgate open. I found a truck supply house in MI that I ordered my pintle from. Ordered it at 3:00 pm and UPS pulled up in my driveway at 2:30pm the next day! If you need the name, post up and I'll go through my records for you.

Also, I noticed that you're running 32" tires with 3.07's. That's going to affect how much you'll be able to comfortably pull in that trailer. But, that M100 pulls like a dream behind my TJ.

Good luck getting it!! If you're able to buy it, post up a pic or two.
