The ton and a half cargo rating of the M105 was for off-road performance. On highway, the M105 trailer would carry up to 5,500 pounds. The construction of the M105 trailers allowed it to be completely submerged when fording. It was equipped with air over hydraulic brakes and a mechanical hand brake.
Some folks have been interested in this to repurpose it into a camper or convert it into a truck bed by removing the trailer tongue. Disaster relief organizations may also have a need for something like this to haul supplies. Just some ideas for you!
