I know the foot basket will stick out but can you still close the tailgate? I understand on the M101A2 trailer you will have to drive over one of the inner fenders. Would really like to buy a mule but need to store it in a trailer. Thanks for the help. Also maybe drive it in and have the foot basket stick out over the front fender. I have a really nice M101A2 but with wheel spacers and trimming the inner fenders she might fit between the wheel wheels.

will not fit between the wheel wells Mule is 48" and trailer is 44" between the wheel wells . If you take the box off , you end up with a trailer you could make a nice flatbed for your mule

I don't believe it will fit into a 3/4 ton trailer. Admittedly, I am basing this upon carrying one in an M105A2. It did fit in there nicely, but the foot basket would push the rear flap out a bit. The mule took up the entire length of a 1-1/2 ton trailer.

I have both the M274 A2 and A5 mules and a M101A2 trailer and the wheel wells are just too narrow between them to handle a mule. I have toyed with cutting the wheel wells down and narrowing them as there is plenty of clearance between the tires and wheel wells but haven't done so yet. I would stick to the 105 trailer if it will fit, but I haven't looked up the specs. Good luck.

If you go with a M105, do you have something to pull it that will operate the brakes ? A M105 is heavy enough to require operational brakes empty. They come with air brakes to be compatible with a M35. Some have converted them to electric brakes but you need something.

The 105 is too big and heavy and there is the brake issue. I'm sure it will fit in a M1101 but man have they gone up in price.
