Car Trailer For Sale Coventry, Birmingham, Leicester.

The PT56 is a 16′ flat bed with hydraulic tilt built on three durable 1750kg axles. We have used the Bateson AT and PT models on our hire fleets for years and have not a bad word to say about them! The tilting bed creates an ideal approach angle for low vehicles, made better with the ramp extension blocks. The 16’x7′ deck is suitable for carrying most vehicles but Bateson also have extra wide options available in a 7’6″ or 8′ wide bed.

With the addition of the steel sides this versatile trailer can go from a car transporter to a builder’s trailer and vice versa. This sturdy flat bed truly is the definition of an “everyman’s trailer”, especially with the selection of optional extras.
