    Default New to me M101CDN2 (finally)

    New to me trailer. Picked it up last week, very stoked to find one. It is a 1992, so it is supposedly one of the last ones made. Great shape, new AT's and wired for 12v. It came with all the stuff to put it back to stock too.

    I have...plans.









    Anyone know of a good sheet metal fabricator in Victoria? I needs me a lid and some racks.

    Do a search over on Expo.... there was a complete thread about making lids & loads of useful info on expanding on these great little trailers.

    Nice find

    I have been spending a lot of time on there lately, that and IH8MUD too. I found some drawings for a lid I really like too!

    Look for Swampman over on the IH8MUD site, sweet Cherokee and trailer setup.

    Now for a tailgate design.

    Even though we have lots of room in the new truck I still want one of those trailers. Would be a perfect base camp setup with a RTT on it.

    nice score! definitely get swampmans plans for his lids. i wish i saw his before i got mine made...but its pretty close. i used steel though, al was too $pendy for what it was for. m101s make great chasers. maybe once the kids get bigger, we can ditch our kodiak ground tent and put an RTT on the trailer. if you're ever on the mainland, cruisinoffroad.com has built up a wicked m101. he's over on mud as well.

    check out my m101 build for lid and rack gutter ideas...

    got me an M101

    My thoughts too, with the quick release I made for the RTT it'd be easy to swap between vehicle & trailer depending upon length & type of trip. The Overland meet in Washington is an ideal use for this setup allowing exploring during the day without the worry of wrecking your RTT

    Keep up the good work & post lots of pic's

    Yep that's my thinking as well. The best part is using the M101 as a base still allows you to get to remote places and base camp form there as well. I also think I would get better millage towing a M101 with a RTT than putting a RTT on the top of my truck too.
