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

With a standing height of 2.03 m, all three versions are characterised by lots of space and comfort for four occupants. The 285 cabin is suitable primarily for families with children, as the layout permits two separate sleeping areas. A further special feature: On request, we provide access to the driver’s cab; in doing so we also alter the backrest of the back seat.

For short trips or shopping without the cabin, the opening can be closed quickly and simply using a door and plastic panel. The series flatbed from Volkswagen comes up trumps with a special feature: During mounting, the tailboard just has to be detached for the cabin to fit like a glove. Couldn’t be less complicated.
