    No help needed with M109 Restore..

    I posted the sale photos (here). There will be more to come soon, but I have the front end apart right now. Our intention with this truck was to convert the box into a camper, and no matter what the mod/upgrade was -- it seemed you had already done them. This gave me confidence in the rig. I...

    @goldneagle I know it's bad form to revive a decade-old thread, but would you believe that I have your M109 sitting in my driveway in Washington state?

    New M109 owner. Greetings from central Washington!

    An update - we spent a few hours on maintenance and drove the truck out of Louisiana and made it the approx 2300 miles back. Wouldn't have been as pleasant if not for the previous owner's installation of air ride seats. It's already been converted to spin-on oil and fuel filters... and had a...

    Registering an M1078 in Washington State

    I definitely didn't want to get into the legal advice territory. I saw that there was a House Bill shelved about classifying these vehicles as collector vehicles in 2020/2021, so I wanted to update the community on what the current state of things is like so that maybe we can get a renewed push...

    Second location (in Yakima) called back - super helpful woman who thought it was a cool rig - said that the state told her that my M35A2 (M109) is only titleable as an off-road vehicle despite having current registration and title in Louisiana. I asked about whether registering commercial made...

    Registering an M1078 in Washington State

    Sorry to revive a dead thread, but there's no sense in making a new one. Purchased an M35A2 with a Louisiana title and was told it couldn't be registered for on-road use at all at one auto licensing location. A second told me that she was under the impression anything M## couldn't be registered...

    New M109 owner. Greetings from central Washington!

    Just got registration in WA done today. Girlfriend and I decided to make it a road trip with one of our newish camper vans. We both have family within 5 hours of the truck that we’ll be staging at and can receive shipments at. I’ll make a post in the trips forum when the timeline is established...

    New M109 owner. Greetings from central Washington!

    Hi all, Recently became obsessed with MVs and have been stalking ever since. I finally tracked down and purchased a 1958 REO M109 that I intend to convert into a camper. I build off-grid electrical systems for vans and overland applications for a living - so looking forward to building on a...
