    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,
