Well the search for a quality M101cdn trailer is over. Scored this beauty. The trailer is complete and in remarkable condition with very little minor surface rust. I will be preparing it for next season over the winter. Plans are to install 33x12.50 MTZs, SOA, design and construct removable lid, repaint exterior and LineX the tub. Lotsa room now for spare parts, camping gear and bear proof food storage. I'll post up some pics when the work is done.

Very nice--looks like it is in awesome condition. If you don't mind me asking---what did it run you; pm me if you prefer?

I've been looking just not sure of price ranges

Wow great find! The more I look at these and what I've done with my trailer build, the more I'm wanting one of those little guys just for the lighter trips where my big beast isn't really necessary. Maybe a few minor add-ons like LED lighting, matching tires/rims and lid, lock-n-roll hitch and call it good. Would be a great little camp trailer for sure. Ah to dream... Then again, I kinda have a thing for trailers. :D

Again, Great find!

Best of Luck,

Mike

Well I started with a hub conversion and installed 33x12.50 Micky's. Looking at it I believe I should have clearance to suit my needs but if not I'll just do a shackle lift rather than an SOA. Matte khaki paint on the way from Rapco as well as a camo soft cover from GMA. A removable metal lid is being fabricated. I didn't want the limitations of a hinged top.

Nice :0) I love the one I got last summer - only prob is that it's never empty long enough for me to work on it ;0)

For anyone that anywhere near Edmonton Alberta Canuckiaville - I see them there for around 700/800 bucks quite often. They're generally in excellent shape as they are from CFB Suffield so generally over maintained.

OH AND BTW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alittle something I found out that everyone who gets one of these should know!!!!!!

Have I put enuff !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! here yet????!!!!!!

THE PAINT ON THESE THINGS IS EXTREEEEEEEEEMELY TOXIC!!!!!!!!!!

It's a low emission blah blah blah paint that's supposed to not give off as much ir/radar signature. When the boys up here do maintenance on em they have to wear full scott packs or the like so as to not inhale ANY of this crap.

Got that from a wheeling buddy of mine who used to be in the trade.

Wow!!!!!! Thanks for that tip. As soon as my paint arrives I was going to start sanding. I would have only used a paper mask. I'll look into this issue a little further prior to proceeding.

It has been so long since I did my trailer, I forgot about CARC. It is a chemical agent resistant paint that is just nasty. This is a link to some good information: http://www.inetres.com/gp/military/cv/carc.html

It also resists chemical strippers. It took multiple applications. I took my tub and larger parts to an industrial sandblaster, where I knew they were prepared to handle CARC.

This is great safety information that should be made a sticky in this section. Moderators?
