A word of warning when looking at US military surplus trailers. Colorado law requires a retired US Military vehicle/trailer to have a title to register and re-title here in Colorado. I only bring this up as states like UT do not require trailers to be titled. When I moved from UT I learned this as my M101a had no title.

Colorado will confinscate a vehicle/trailer without one. Colorado takes the assumption that if you have no title it must be stolen US government property. This was in 2003 and I assume nothing has changed. I applied for a lost title in UT prior to moving. It was simple there.

what about home built ? in florida if more that 40 or 50 % of the trailer was built or rebuilt you could file for home built trailer and get a new title.. and in florida they do it all at the dmv and dont inspect the trailer since its not a motor vicheical.. so you would not tecinally have to build or rebuild the trailer..

Tim...I recycled a trailer a bit ago, fixed it up and registered it here in broomfield. I didn't have a title since the trailer was basically given to me as junk...and the lady just registered it as home-built. They didn't ask to see the trailer or a picture of it. I would try that route. Just tell them you built a trailer. Just a warning...it now costs me $33/yr to register it (used to be about $11 before Ritter got his way).

My M101 Canadian is registered as a homebuilt trailer here in Colorado IIRC. Costs me $ 39/year to keep the registration current. I think it can also be registered based on weight.

Here are the pictures.

Don't mean to be a tease, but they didn't have the "For Sale" sign up yesterday. I will get the numer when they put the sign back up.

Sorry. :(

that's the 1 ton.. you don't want to pull that with a cruiser if you don't have to.

As I just walked in the door from a trip to the steel yard so my m101a is still hooked up. Mine is the 3/4 ton just for reference. You definitely know its back there with the 80. The trailer posted above was meant to be pulled by a duce & half. Definitely more than you want with a Cruiser. I believe they were rated for 1.5 tons offroad actually and more on the HWY. Mine is 1500lbs offroad and 2200 HWY according to the info plate on the box.

I towed the m105 1.5 ton trailer with my 80 and unloaded it was no issue at all. 65+ on the highway. Loaded I am sure would be very different. A guy on MUD swapped out the axles on a m105 and made a pretty cool trailer. I think the m101 and m105 have the same bed, just different frame, axles, etc? That said, I sold my m105 because it was too big for my needs, but a m101 with the dump bed is what I am looking for now...

I might be selling mine next summer. (its a dump bed) If you have not found one by then drop me a line. I want to home build something a little lighter duty.

The m105 box is bigger and heaver built.

so even with the 12 inch pintle hitch rise, the trailer is still not quite level?

Nose of the Cruiser is uphill in that pic. I think the trailer bed is level on level ground. But I've honestly never paid that close of attention. With a 4" lift and 35"s I don't think I'd need a hitch rise anymore;)
