Backing the M105 behind an MTVR would be interesting. I used one behind my HEMTT and hated it. I upgraded to an M1082 FMTVT unit and it is much easier to back. If you are looking for a cargo trailer it may be the best or an M1095 for the MTVR. Just my opinion, you mileage may vary.....

Just picked up my M332. Here it is behind my MK30. I’ll say these trailers are much taller than they look in pictures. Probably be fine for hauling a bobcat or a tractor but a large Backhoe or taller equipment might be too tall for the road. Could take down a few phone drops for sure. But my overall opinion is that all trailers should be made this well designed. The kickstand in the rear, The button on the trailer to set the brakes, The many Tiedowns, I work harder to get the ramps down than pull them up because of the springs are so good, and my favorite thing I noticed and I was actually going to add-it already has a winch/crane that can be stuck in three different places on the trailer to lift material on and off.

They were designed to haul the CAT 420 backhoe. They work well enough you can swap to 255 70 225s in dual and bring the deck down almost 5 inches.

It's easy to overload the tongue weight on one.

Thanks, Good to know! 5” lower gets it where I feel more comfortable.
