Hey Everyone,
Before I introduce myself, Id like to thank everyone who shared their builds on this forum and let people like me take your ideas and use them in my project!
Been on this forum for a while now seeing all the great Trailer Ideas, and thought I`d finally join and share some pics and answer questions if I can. Before I

Here is my expo trailer.

The day I bought it for $1200. (best $1200 spent)







Spring over time!









I always liked the hand brake M101 came with and wanted to save it so made this bracket out of scrap metal and mounted it under the frame.





Time to build a lid!

Trip to Metal superstore




Got it cut and bent


My RTT showed up!:bounce:


Building the lid and an awning mounts











Got it Painted, installed new wheel adapters, installed Traielr tounge box, installed RTT and an awning.





Test day.





Its not finished yet, still have to tweak few things, weld up/install new wider fenders, maybe mudflaps, 12V battery, lights etc...

But, happy the way it sits behind my JKU and cant wait to take it out! Let me know what you guys think.
Thanks, Sam

Great idea on the lid pins! I have noticed that my top has "migrated" an inch or so rearward having not secured it to the trailer on the closing end. The struts have actually pushed the top toward the rear of the trailer bending the front panel. Time for another mod.

Did you make the pins out of some rod stock and grind the ends down?

Great looking build and nice color as well.

Hey Sam,
Very nice setup you have there. I have been searching all over for that exact trailer, or should I say on like that. Where ever did you find one? I am always 5 minutes too late on these, I have adds all over the net and cant seem to get one? Just missed out on one in Langley this past weekend...grrr.

Anyhow, love the top and the RTT!! Nice work.

Greg,
There's a M101 CDN Yahoo group. Join it if you haven't been there already. Someone was lokking to sell a M101 in Ontario just today. Sorry it's the wrong end of the country, but they do pop up. Wouldn't hurt to intro yourself and let folks know you're looking.

Then there are the Classifieds here on MUD. That's where I found ours.

Yeah, once you've seen one, you want one:doh::idea:

Saw that too on the M101 board. He's asking $1200. SOA already done, wired for 12V and has a 2" hitch welded to the back. Otherwise stock.

I hear you there... been looking for some time now.
Yes, I am signed up on that Yahoo group, and I have sent the guy in Ontario a message yesterday. I imagine shipping might be a deal killer on that deal.

In talks with someone from Seattle now. Fingers crossed!
Thanks!
Greg
