Group Description

Canadian M101-CDN2, 1/4 ton trailer was designed and manufactured by D.E.W. Engineering in Ottawa, Ontario Canada for use with the Canadian Bombardier Iltis 1/4 ton jeep. There is a Yahoo group that focuses on the Canadian Bombardier and VW Iltis at www.groups.yahoo.com/group/iltis/

Updated "Jeep Trailer" by the Canadian Forces. Also in the lineage of 1/4 ton trailers are its' predessors the BT3 & MBT (WW2), M100 (Korean War era) and the Bantam civilian T3C & Spen trailer (both post WW2 into early 1950's). Some countries also made similar trailers after WW2. Newer contemporary civilian clones are available.

The M101 CDN2 trailer is in relatively limited supply. It has become a favourite 1/4 ton trailer for use with owners of the Canadian Bombardier Iltis, the "Jeep"/"Landrover" off road crowd, and as a starting point for creation of an expedition off road trailer. In comparision to the older US military trailers, the M101 CDN2 is usually in good condition and was very robust in its' design and construction. Many of the M101 CDN2 1/4 ton trailers have been imported into the USA and tend to demand a higher acquisition cost in the US, as compared to Canada.
