Dropside trailer - what should it be equipped with?

Dropside trailers are very popular - both among private persons and business owners. They are light, easy to drive and universal in use - thanks to them you can safely transport various types of equipment, materials or waste. To adapt the sideboard to your needs, it is worth learning about additional accessories that will make it even more functional. Here are the ones that are most often chosen by customers!

Various types of dropside trailer bodywork

The standard equipment of each dropside trailer includes hooks that allow you to safely transport various items, non-slip and waterproof floors, as well as durable support wheels.

When buying a dropside trailer, you can equip it with additional solutions. We are talking here especially about different types of tops. What choice do you have?

Flat tarpaulin

It is a solution that allows you to safely transport loose and light materials such as sand, cement, leaves, and even paper or cardboard. On the one hand, you will protect them against external factors and stabilize them, and on the other hand, you will gain full discretion.

An additional advantage of using a flat tarpaulin on the sideboard is the reduction of air resistance while driving, which leads to lower fuel consumption.
