Military Surplus Trailers

This summer I purchased a pair of M101A1/2 trailers from Government Liquidation. Both trailers were in good shape with nearly new tires.
The flatbed M101A1 (1988) has some pealing paint from what I assume is fuel and battery leakage but nothing that is eating the metal yet. It will require scraping, sanding and painting.

The M101A2 is younger (1992) and in better shape. This is the one I had always planned on keeping. I love it as it is light enough to shove around by hand, can hold my jeep or whatever I can get in there and has the option of dumping with just a few as yet to be made minor modifications.

If you plan on buying from Government Liquidation a few things to keep in mind:
First time you will have to be "ok'd" this process can take 40+ days and you have to buy something to get it started. You will then get a call and will have to drop everything and pick up your stuff in 10 days or forfeit your order and $$. I got the guys to hold mine a few extra days by asking very politely and providing a cooler of Montana micro-brew. About the fees, you will pay an auction premium, then you will pay another $80 or so for the Government title and then another $100 to transfer that into your name and get a state title. So before you get itchy looking at that oh so desirable $400 trailer remember it is really going to cost you $600-650.

I will be buying from them again.
