The military trailers are very overbuilt. Im looking at possibly getting one to haul small tractors and firewood in. Something like a 101 or a 1102. Anyone else using these trailers? I'd be towing it with a newer full size pickup.
WWhat's a CAM trailer? Term I'm not familiar with.I have a 5x10 CAM trailer with a mesh fold down tailgate. It has a GVW of 2200 lbs. Id say it weighs around 500 lbs, so I could probably haul 1700 lbs on it.
Originally I was thinking of getting a dump trailer, but they aren't cheap
One of the better designs if one can be sourced from an ex military disposal sale ( if you have them in the US ) is a 4 wheel ex oxygen/ gas cylinder / bomb trailerOverbuilt for sure. I prefer a lower trailer for rolling on the larger rounds. Can't do that with these.
Call Axle Inc. & order an 8,000lb Dexter with the dimensions you want.I bought one at an auction for $100 the M101 variant and everyone laughed at me, ( I was fairly young) . I bought it for my father that still likes to go out in the woods and gathers firewood with his tractor. it even has the tall 2-1/3 ton military tires going over stumps and ruts, logs ect is a great benefit. a few years later my brother put an electric dump. and man does that thing haul the wood.
If I had my say I would like to put a dully axel set up on it to tow down the road and lower it a bit; as it sits now it is exclusively a woods trailer ..
