    I'm doing research now to do the same build. Really interested on how this is going to turn out.

    Hey Joe,

    My name is Brooks and I l have just started researching the purchase of an M1101. I plan to build a camping trailer as well. My number is 602-725-6778 and my e-mail is brooks.ravenscroft@gmail.com. I live in North Phoenix, I would love to talk about your experience as a bunch of M1101's are up for auction at the beginning of June at Fort Bliss.

    Thanks,

    Brooks

    So I got my permanent registration. I picked up a camp stove from Costco and got a couple long ram jacks for the rack elevation. I've got the rack designed and drawn out. Now I need to find some consultation on the materials. I'm 90 % convinced that aluminum is the way to go but I'm not sure what size, wall thickness, etc. I'm looking for a 1000 lb. weight capacity. Any body have any insight on aluminum strength and size requirements?

    Man this is exactly the same trailer I was looking for. I was wondering if a quad would fit in the trailer. Curious on the dimensions.

    Looks good!! Keep us informed on the telescoping poles I am trying to figure out it to because the metal I bought has a weld running through it from the forming process.

    Jake,

    this is quite old thread so heres hoping your still on here. Just won one today on iron planet government auction for $625, if I am seeing correct you didn't have to buy anything but the Pintle insert and it rides pretty level. I don't have the 3" lift so would you recommend anything or will the Pintle insert do fine? I have 5100's for shocks and 265x75x17 tires so I am thinking (hoping) it will ride fine without having to get the pintle riser plate.
