    Default My Winter Project

    I won a bid on a military M101 trailer for my next project. It is a 1965 model with surface rust but overall good condition even the tires are good condition. This model did not have surge or electric brakes as far as I can tell. The tires are in good shape and the hand brakes work fine, the dumping action works as it should. When I was in the Army this model trailer was pulled by the Chevy 5/4 trucks and the Chevy Blazer, and once in a while by a deuce in a 1/2. We used the trailer to carry tents, generators, personal gear, ammo, and ect. I am gonna use it to move dirt around the farm from our summer pond digging project.

    I have the Canadian version of the M101. It is the M101CDN2, built by DEW Industries in Ottawa, ON. Mine does not dump, but it is still a good trailer and a compliment to my Jeep TJ. (Wrangler)

    Have you checked out the spring packs on those trailers?
    I put a 1/2 ton in mine (rated for 1/4 ton) and the springs didn't flatten out at all.
    I also changed out the 16" rims for 15" so it would pull level behind my Jeep.

    Mine has 5 lugs on the wheels and 10.00 16 tires on old style split rims if I remember right. How did you change your wheels out. The newer trailers have 8 lug Chevy which would be great for me.

    I took off the Audi (so they tell me) rims and put rims from a '84 Lincoln Continental MK7 on they bolted right on. both the Army and Lincoln rims are 5 lug rims.
    I still have the original rims and sand tires (50% tread) for it.
    I also ran my 12 volt electrics right along side of the original 24 Volt.

    Be extra careful or better still when you air up those tires, take two chains and wrap them around the tires and rims in two places (preferably oposite each other) and hook them onto themselves loosely. Do NOT get any body parts near the rims when airing them up. The old split rims have been known to kill people at the worst. At their best failure rate they will only take your arm off.
