Flatbed vehicles VW T4/T5/T6

Trail/Box 280/280S

The Trail/Box 280 cabin model (with back entrance) and the 280S model (side entrance) were specially designed for the VW flatbed trucks T4, T5 and T6.

Flexible travel with the Trail/Box 280/280S

The series continues to develop and the Trail/Box 280/280S cabs are now available for T4, T5 and the new T6. With a standing height of 2.03 m, both versions offer plenty of space and comfort for four people. With a functionally equipped kitchen and full bathroom, there’s nothing left to be desired even on longer trips.

Another special feature of the Trail/Box 280/280S: On request, we can install a step-through to the driver’s cab; we also change the backrest of the rear seat bench. For excursions or shopping trips without a cabin, the opening can be closed quickly and easily using a door and plastic window.
The standard Volkswagen flatbed has a special feature: Only the side walls need to be removed during the bodywork and the cab fits like a glove. It could hardly be more uncomplicated.

Optional access to the cab.
