Bateson Van Trailers

Our range of van trailers has been developed over many years with different models added in response to customers requests. Using a trailer of this type will double the capacity of a van or it can even be replaced, towing with a car or 4 x 4. There is no road tax or M.O.T. offering a very economical method of transporting goods. We have a range of sizes and capacities to suit most towing vehicles.

The newest and smallest all glassfibre unbraked 120V looks great and has found many uses from carrying extra luggage with taxis, disco and band equipment to racing motor cycles.

The larger trailers all have overrun brakes from 1300 kg to 3.5 tons gross weight. The use of the latest technology and materials has resulted in a trailer offering a smart modern appearance with good aerodynamics and low un laded weight. The chassis are all galvanised and fitted with independent rubber suspension axles. There is an internal steel frame, not often found in this type of trailer, to which load securing hooks and galvanised steel tying rails are attached. There is an 18 mm plywood lower front bulkhead with steel tying rails above. The sides are lightweight glass fibre/ plywood composite panels and the roof is translucent glass fibre with an aluminium frame.

Standard equipment includes a locking coupling, spare wheel and carrier and our ingenious coupling mirror which allows the hitch to be seen during coupling to eliminate misalignment and damaged bumpers. The trailers can be fitted with either the standard roof mounted roller shutter door. hinged van doors or a spring assisted ramp door. A front personnel door or side roller doors can be fitted to special requirements. Also the inside headroom can be increased if required or the overall height can be reduced to fit into buildings but the aerodynamic front would need to be replaced with a flat front.
