    Another "what is this trailer" thread.

    Unfortunately I didn't bid due to distance. The first round had about eight and then there were a couple of listings the following week. Forgot to mark as favorites so I could see price.

    Another "what is this trailer" thread.

    Hey everybody, there have been some interesting trailers on GovSales recently, selling out of Arizona. I downloaded a couple of pictures of one, seems to be a prototype of some sort maybe? I like the size.

    Pickup day Albany, Georgia

    Staff at Albany are amazing! Last time I was there picking up a trailer that was missing a wheel (knew that in advance and brought my own replacement) they used their loader to lift the trailer while I attached the wheel. They also loaned me an impact driver when they saw that I was using a...

    What have you done WITH your FMTV ( trips, Rescues etc) NOT: fixes, updates etc

    Thanks for sharing, George! That looks like a great setup. I am needing a capable rig for hauling building materials (sand, gravel, logs) over some pretty rugged terrain, probably behind a tractor, and this looks like a great option.

    Dang, impressive! Have you done any modifications to the trailer besides the dump box? I enjoyed your YouTube video.

    M37 on Purple Wave Auctions SOLD @ $6,710

    Here's one I was watching last week in Alabama. So cool, but no way to possibly justify it.

    M101A2 leaf spring capacity questions

    Not an exact answer to your question, but I have hauled 4700 pounds of sand in my M101a1. It is pretty much stock as far as I know. Now I only traveled about four miles and didn't get above 40mph, but it pulled fine. Wouldn't have wanted to go any faster though.

    New project! S788+m105 chassis

    Looks awesome! Will you use it as a camper? I just picked up a second M116a3 that I'm wanting to do something cool like this with.

    Neat use for a Director's Trailer, M17?

    Sweet! Is that the one that was at auction in Athens? I was tracking a couple of items they had for sale. Had no idea that it was this type of trailer.

    Any advantages to M105a2 over M1101/2 besides price?

    Yes for me a good condition M101A3 would really be ideal. They are just so spendy. Thanks for the picture M813rc! That really brings home how massive the M105 is.

    Any advantages to M105a2 over M1101/2 besides price?

    Thanks for the detailed reply Tinstar! You definitely pushed me over the edge to the M1101/2. Not excited about spending more money, but would much rather get the right tool for the job.

    Any advantages to M105a2 over M1101/2 besides price?

    Thanks for your reply Coug! I will mostly be using this in the woods, which is why the narrower track appeals. However like you said the extra weight pretty much balances that out and then some. I reckon I'll bite the bullet and spend more for the trailer that will better suit my needs.

    Any advantages to M105a2 over M1101/2 besides price?

    Hey guys, it would seem like I am a full on military trailer addict! Looking for number four. I see lots of M105s and M1101/2s headed for the auction block over the next couple of weeks. Looking at previous sales the 105s would seemingly be a bit cheaper. I see that they have about 240 pounds...

    Anybody mounted a truck utility bed on an M353?

    Hey guys, as the thread title indicates, I'm interested in mounting a utility bed to an M353. I bought one at the GP sale a few days ago down in Georgia, and plan on picking it up next week. I have been looking at utility bodies on Craigslist and some look like they might fit. I won't buy one...
