Model Details
Closely related to the Flatbed range, and with the addition of a sloping rear bed section, these trailers offer the flexibility of a Flatbed with the added benefit of a low loading height to the rear of the trailer. As with all our Flatbed trailers, the Beavertail range can be fitted with one of our winch options, allowing the recovery and loading of broken down or unpowered vehicles. We offer width options of 1.98m/6’6" and 2.25m/7’6" and length options of 4.23m/14’ and 4.77m/16’. The maximum gross weight for the lighter LT models is 2000kg, whilst the heavier LM models offer maximum gross weight of 3500kg.

Easy To Load

Unlike other flatbed trailers, the flatbed trailer has a sloping rear bed section. With a loading height of just 6.4cm, the sloping beavertail trailer allows vehicles to drive onto the flatbed with ease. If your car is more ornamental than functional and you’d rather not drive it, the beavertail trailers have the option of a winch installation, so your unpowered vehicle can load on the trailer with ease. The Ifor Williams beavertail trailers hold between 2-3.5t max gross weight depending on the model. The platform length is around 1.98m x 4.24m or 2.25m x 4.84m, meaning you can transport any number of vehicles or various shapes and sizes.


Ifor Williams trailers are renowned for their safety. Each of the following precautions is typical of all Ifor Williams car trailers, not just the beavertail trailer.

  • Exclusive beam axle and leaf spring suspension systems for stability.
  • Safe, stable walk-on platforms
  • Ample door clearance and high grip treads to ensure safe vehicle entry and exit.
  • Testing occurs on an Ifor Williams fatigue testing rig to ensure safety when loading larger vehicles.
  • Galvanised steel structures to prevent corrosion and rust.
  • Accessories such as lashing rings and skids to ensure your vehicle remains secure

No Electric Brakes

Unlike many other Australian trailers, Ifor Williams trailers use mechanical brakes rather than electric. Mechanical brakes are the better option for so many reasons;

  • They are less likely to malfunction. No more wiring faults, connector issues, or shortages.
  • They use handbrake breakaway cables. This increases on-road safety and provides and overall smoother ride.
  • They’re far easier to maintain. These brakes are simple to set up and simple to look after.


One of the best features of Ifor Williams beavertail trailers is how customisable they are. No matter what you need from your trailer, you can install a number of accessories to ensure your trailer is up to the job. Accessories for the beavertail trailers include;

  • headboards
  • electric winches
  • propstands
  • lashing rings
  • skids
