Look what followed me home yesterday
« on: March 09, 2013, 09:16:11 AM »
The ultimate off road bug out trailer! Just $1500!
 
Military M1102 trailer designed to tow behind the HMMWV. This trailer is super rugged and is a great work, camping, expedition or bug out trailer.
 
The trailer has a military spec pintle hitch,  Built in to the hitch is a surge brake assembly giving it brakes without any special wiring required in the tow vehicle. It also has independent parking brakes for parking on a hill.
 
It has a full independent tailing arm suspension with shock absorbers, meaning it has a great ride and also has a whole lot of ground clearance.
 
The tires are military HMMWV 37.5x12.5x16.5 with the run flat inserts and are in excellent shape. It uses a standard one ton 8 lug pattern so you can swap smaller wheels/tires or swap to match your tow vehicle.
 
The body is all aluminum with cargo tie down points and a tailgate. It even has a military Jerry can mount built in as well as landing legs for the back that attach to allow you to load it or camp in it with it disconnected from the tow vehicle.
 
Still has the military wiring, I can provide instructions for converting to a regular 4 flat plug or can do it for the buyer for $20.
 
The government paid over $8000, this is a steal at $1500. Perfect work, camping, expedition or survival trailer- load full of your camping, survival, fishing or other gear and you have it made!
 

Manufacturers specs:
 
Maximum Vehicle Weight 4200 lb (1905 kg)
 Curb Weight 1460 lb ( 662 kg)
 Maximum Payload Capacity 2740 lb (1243 kg)

Upon this a question arises: whether it be better to be loved than feared or feared than loved? One should wish to be both, but, because it is difficult to unite them in one person, it is much safer to be feared than loved.

I would love to have one... I don't have the $$ for one, but I would love it!
It reminds me of Les Hiddens( The Bush Tucker man) military trailer he hauled around a lot. I think it would be great for hauling stuff for big get-together outings. like the Kracanueners do...
 ;)

Those tires look to be about $200-250 US for the pair alone, let alone the rig..
Good deal, the way I see it!

My favorite off road trailer ever.   They are a bit more money than they used to be but still worth it.

A friend of mine has a similar one of those.
He likes to hit up those government auctions. He's got all kinds of stuff including one of those huge 6x6 transport trucks.
He's going to mount a .50 cal BMG on the back with a turret. And yeas he has all that stuff too... Hell he's even got an old fire lookout tower :shrug:

Oh... And he's also got 5 Chez military surplus fighter planes and his own hanger to put them in ;)
And yes... He knows how to fly them :P
He's in his late 60's and don't mess around :)

Sorry WB... That trailer just reminded me of him :)

Man that is sweet.  I've never seen one in that good of shape before.  I can just picture that with a deer in the back and my canoe tied down on it :)

Clean is right, take a look at the undercarriage,



This thing has seen very little use, heck most of the paint is still on the pintle


, a few scratches in the bed, otherwise this is pristine.

You want a deuce-and-a-half I can get you one.  They had a bunch in really nice condition in desert camo fresh from the middle east at the depot where I picked up this trailer.

I already have a GB SFA, but dental health is priceless so let me consider it......

No thanks  ;)

Bench,

It's as close to new as any surplus trailer I've seen.  The plate shows it was made in 2009 and it takes a couple of years to run through the DRMO process to get into the surplus pipeline so it couldn't have been used much if at all.

This will serve somebody else's family for generations, it's for sale by owner (me).

Price lowered to $1450 and I'll deliver it for a modest fee (cost of gas and tolls).

You know they make camper tops for it?  I could be persuaded to trade it away.

I just picked up another trailer, this one is an M1101, pretty much identical to the last one.  And I'm getting a second one on Monday.  Since i don't have a need for two, I'll be dealing on these.  They would look awesome behind a dually  8)

My Tahoe pulled this one home with ease, I just needed a 12" rise on the pintle, but putting smaller tires on would drop it 4" and I believe the pintle hook can be lowered a couple more to get it level.  And a buddy put a drop axle on his and it looks great, a low rider M1101  :).

This one can be yours for $1250.00.  I'll deliver within 200 miles of my home for free (212 miles if you pay cash)

Here are some shots of the first new one









I'll post some pictures of the second one later in the week.
