Just got one for FREE, will be delivered in two weeks or less. No rust, just primed, like new tires.

Once I get it I'll post pics. I think it will look good behind the CJ8 project (when ever I get it finished :biggrin1: )

Is the trailer OK to haul w/OUT a tag seeing it is vintage?

Info:
M101
3/4 Ton.
1959 MFG.
1960 Delivery Date.
Military Hitch.
Tail Gate - if memory serves, I think that's what he said.
US Marines is on the data plate.

P.S. Haven't seen it, but here is a picture of one on E-bay. Looks like it has latches in the front for a dump bed OR are they individual brakes for the trailer, looks like brake handles. Anyone know anything about it?

Since it's a military vehicle I would assume that like other military vehicles, it does not need to display a tag. The law requires that you be able to show one to an officer on demand but they do not need to be displayed. This goes for former military vehicles as well as fire apparatus.

A trailer that size most likely does have wheel brakes and there should be a hand brake to hold it when parked/unhitched.

But, that trailer is too big for a 1/4 ton. Jeeps pulled M416B1s and M100s. It will look way oversized compared to your jeep.

But you should give it to me nonetheless.

Thanks Dave, I think JimB has some info on this, if he pots it maybe I can print it to keep in the Jeep(s) etc. I guess it would be kind of big for a Jeep, now what :scratch:

P.S. I will trade it for a M100.

Congrats Rollbar! :unsure:

I agree with Dave that it might be a bit too big. I also thought that most military older trailers did not have a tail gate. :1thumb:

With regards to the licensing... The info is pined here on the Vintage section: Displaying and Licensing of Military vehicles.

You still have to register the trailer and license if I'm not mistaken but you don't have to display it. Register the trailer as Military which the paperwork that you have should back this up.

Post the pics! :beer:

Thanks Jim, when it gets here I'll post pics of the trailer, AL is bringing it up from Orlando if he can get a tag to borrow.

P.S. His boss has some nice 4 banger diesels & such for sale, I'll post a list once I get the list.

P.P.S. I seen one when I was driving today & I agree, it is big but it will carry lots of stuff to the camp ground/wheeling spot, then I can dump it & go.
