Curtainsider or Tautliner Trailer

HGV Curtainsider or Tauliner Trailer

A Curtainsider or Tautliner trailer is a term used for a trailer, usually a flat decked trailer, with a rigid frame above the deck with a solid roof and rear doors, and removable curtain sides secured by straps.

A Curtainsider or Tautliner trailer is often used for transporting palletised goods when protection from the elements or a basic level of security is required. Otherwise a flat or platform trailer will do.
