copying from my thread over on mud:
I've been searching for a 1/4 ton trailer for the last 2-3 years on various sites including my favorite Craiglist . I've contacted a bunch of people and seen a lot of 1/4 tons in various conditions, mostly banged up, rusted, and overpriced. The last year or so I've been searching heavily looking multiple times a day on different sites. Late February I managed to find a post on Clist for a M101CDN located out in Bakersfield within hours of it being posted. The price was a little on the higher end of what I wanted to pay but it was exactly what I've been looking for. got pictures of the trailer (ad didn't have any) to find out that this thing was in really great condition. Owner promised to give me "first shot at it" since I was traveling from Menifee and was genuinely interested so I ran out to Bakersfield super early in the morning with cash in hand and pintle hitch attached to the truck. This is what I ended up pulling home.
First thing I had done was drop the trailer off at Castle Fabrication in Irvine to get a lid made. Same dude that did Brentbba's lid. Few days later this is what I got.
