Why Curtainsider Trailers?
Curtainsiders are cost effective workhorses suitable for many operators who use forklifts to load predominantly from the side; perhaps without a loading bay facility.
Alternatively, you can load from the rear on a bay and off the side at the point of delivery (and vice versa).
Don-Bur curtainsiders have a heavy-duty, durable specification which will provide many years of trouble-free service.

The patented aerodynamic Teardrop technology is a mature and well-tested method to save fuel.
