Hayton Coulthard Transport has taken delivery of three tri-axle standard curtainsiders from Don-Bur for the first time.

The 4.378m-high trailers with pillarless bodywork, which are EN 12642-XL rated, include 2.8m apertures on the backs and sides and hard-wearing 29mm floors. They also feature aerodynamic front domes, rear roof air diffusers and liveries produced by Don-Bur’s in-house division Sapphire Graphics.

The trailers are suitable for ferry travel and the first one went into operation in late February. The Stoke-based manufacturer said the deal proves that it can compete aggressively for standard trailer business, on top of orders for its specialist double-deck and aerodynamic Teardrop trailers.

Duncan Coulthard Jnr, MD at the Twynholm-based operator said driver feedback about the trailers has been “exceptional”. He added: “I’ve been around trailers all of my life and I can honestly say the trailers Don-Bur have built for us are the best quality curtain trailers I have ever seen.”
