Besides Schmitz, Kögel and Krone, Kässbohrer, Fliegl, Wielton, Tracon, Renders, Van Hool, Berger, Cimc, Fruehauf, Floor and Groenewegen are also known for their curtainsider semi-trailers. Curtainsider semi-trailers can be fitted with various options, such as a mega chassis, sliding roof, lifting roof, loading ramp or pallet boxes. Some trailers also have a special coil gutter, lift axle or steering axle.
Curtainsider semi-trailers can be loaded and unloaded from the side and top due to their design. This makes them extremely suitable for quick loading of goods. Yet they are also suitable for many other tasks such as transporting long or large objects.
Curtainsider semi-trailers are often referred to as "tautliners". This is only partially correct. Tautliner is a brand of British manufacturer Boalley. They produce sliding tarpaulin trailers in which the tensioners are mounted in a unique way, which make it very easy to load the trailer sideways.
The price of a curtainsider semi-trailer depends on a large number of things such as the year of manufacture, any options and its external condition. At BAS World you can already buy a curtainsider semi-trailer for €3,200. Do you want a new trailer? Our new units sell for about €20,000.
