How to Articles The M trailer has been a popular choice for wheelers and people needing small utility trailers for a long time. We had Adventure Trailers out of Prescott,Arizona retrofit one of their suspension systems for our M just before we headed out on our Ultimate Road Trip The improvement between the old and new suspension systems was incomparable, the independent airbag suspension set up they provided us with worked like a charm so this year we wanted to do another upgrade to the trailer to improve the way it towed. On our road trip the Pintle hitch had a tendency to bind up and eventually caused the hitch to pull away from the frame of our old Willys forcing us to spend a day finding and getting an appointment with a shop that could get the frame welded and supported at the same time. We would have had a mess on our hands if it had been torn away from the frame while we were driving, we could have potentially lost or damaged much of our gear in the trailer that we needed to complete our adventure.

Is an 18 gauge tub OK? Should the tub have a tailgate? A fixed pintle for the base model? If we use a 2" receiver tube from the trailer it will be easy to swap in a rotating lunette upgrade. Is a plywood floor OK? Is anyone interested in just the trailer frame without the tub? How about two gross vehicle weight ratings: pounds, and pounds? Both could be pulled with Class I trailer hitches, but the pound version would have lighter springs for a less bouncy ride.
