pics/info of canadian m101 trailer

If I'm posting this in the wrong place, my apologies. You'd think that after 2yrs. of lurking around here reading posts, that I 'd figure out the proper place for postings

But, anyway, for awhile I've been keeping a watch for this military trailer to buy that would be close enough for me to pickup. They were made in 1992 and had great owner reviews from what I read. So when I came across for sale postings from Todd M. (easternjeepers@hotmail.com), who lives in Ontario, Canada, I thought I would check it out more. He seems to have a whole bunch of these trailers.

End result is that I did buy one from him sight unseen, and he seems to be very trustworthy. I picked it up in upstate New York near the Canadian boarder. He definitely went out of his way to make sure that I was happy with the trailer and got back safely after a 400mile drive.

So if anyone has been looking for one of these military trailers, I think Todd is a reputable resource. I know he just had an ebay listing for one: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...sPageName=WDVW
And I heard he's having a groupbuy shipment to NJ this month and possibly also in Lake George, NY in the near future.

Here are pics of mine:






I need to take care of the small spots that are showing surface rust. The undercarriage looks great with no rust at all. Like the saying goes, Just Empty Every Pocket!

That's a cool looking trailer. One thing though I think I'd rather go with a M416 though, it's built to go behind the old m151 jeeps and is a little smaller. Or maybe an M116. The M101 is a 1 1/2 ton trailer mainly for larger trucks.

Sweet! I've been lookin at military surplus trailers from 1/4 to 1 1/2 ton. Hopefully I'll pick one up later this year.

Sure could have used one on the last camping trip!

Did you keep the pintel hitch or has it been converted to a standard ball?
