    Valence's 1972 M35A2

    I unpacked everything at home and unfolded the canvas as it needed to dry. Unfortunately the end curtains had seen the worst of the constant wetness for likely 20+ years, and all metal pieces have a thick coat of heavy, green corrosion. I think I can wipe it all off, but it will be time...

    Valence's 1972 M35A2

    Thanks to Gunzy for finding this for me, I won my first auction from Gov Planet on Wednesday, April 1st, 2020 for an NOS 3-piece canvas cargo cover kit for my deuce! I obviously have a working vinyl cargo cover setup, but I didn't own a canvas one...

    Valence's 1997 Pribbs M101A3

    Then on Friday March 20th, 2020, I found a big new-to-me rocking/reclining chair to buy, but it was going to rain. So for the first time, the brand-new cargo cover I had bought a while ago from Ziggy-O, got put on the trailer. It's a good fit except for one thing: The velcro on the cover...

    Valence's 1997 Pribbs M101A3

    ON March 17th, 2020 I unwrapped the trailer from its winter storage (the tarp I had been covering it with had wore out anyway and was junk). I filled up the tires to 30 PSI each (they were at 5 and 10 PSI though you couldn't tell it by looking at them). And then used it to get a new-to-me...

    Feedback: IMO, it would be much better when folks put URLs in a post if the default for the created URL tag "unfurl" would actually be "false" instead of "true". It is much cleaner, and easier to read, just seeing the clickable URL than a big blocky webpage preview in the middle of the text...

    Is it necessary to repeatedly pop this up? Yes, I know the purpose of ads, and no I won't be clicking on them anyway. I know the forum is not free and I've paid a good deal over the years to support. So I ask again, is it really necessary to repeatedly display this pop-up, no matter how many...

    Valence's 1990 Turtle Mountain M116A2 Power Plant AN/MJQ-33

    Honestly, I have considered disassembling this trailer and using the frame on my Pioneer Tool Trailer project, and keeping the generators and transfer switch box for home use. But the dang thing is complete and readily usable as is... I'm thinking of just leaving it. Gunzy has recommended that I...

    Valence's 1990 Turtle Mountain M116A2 Power Plant AN/MJQ-33

    Some of the bad things about the trailer: As expected, it needs some TLC. Sadly it's 686 tan CARC over 383 green CARC -hahah, but none of my equipment is tan and I prefer woodland or solid 383 green. The center wood over the bows needs replacement, it's rotted beyond saving. I would need to...

    Valence's 1990 Turtle Mountain M116A2 Power Plant AN/MJQ-33

    Pictured above, the trailer came with a single, rusty, old style screw top jerry can, and below are the contents of the tool box with all the additional fuel hose that was packed around it, plus the CO2 fire extinguisher. Note: Only seen in the right picture is a slightly bent up tan rod tan...

    Valence's 1990 Turtle Mountain M116A2 Power Plant AN/MJQ-33

    Yes, yes I have purchased another trailer (purchased on September 5th, 2019). :whistle: This trailer was listed locally about 15 miles from my home and I just couldn't say no to it for the price and condition. It is an M116A2 chassis with a Power Plant AN/MJQ-33 body sporting two 3KW MEP-701A...

    Well heck. On Friday, September 6th, 2019 I went to move the trailer and when I released the right side park brake, the internal portion that attaches to the top of the handle broke. And I know these handles are not reproduced anywhere. =/ Well, I suppose I'll still try placing a want ad.

    I also purchased 23 NOS recessed bed tie-downs from my all-time favorite surplus store, Army Surplus Warehouse. I stumbled upon these in two separate locations in the store, and I couldn't leave without them. (yes, I need 1 more to have an even number, but that's all they had). Some of the tie...
