Welcome to Bateson Trailers website


Established in 1934 we have manufactured many thousands of trailers for varied applications. We are large enough to manufacture quantities of quality trailers at competitive prices and small enough to modify designs and produce special trailers based on over 100 standard models.

Our design experience, utilising 3D CAD and modern production machinery including laser cutting, CNC steel forming and robot welding has enabled us to manufacturer an extensive range of trailers which combine exceptional strength with a low unladen weight and excellent stable towing characteristics.

All trailers are manufactured to comply with the latest European regulations and  have been inspected by the VCA and  granted European Whole Vehicle Type Approval. A certificate of conformity is supplied free with every trailer to permit registration in all European countries (registration is not required in the UK).

All prices shown on this site are subject to VAT and delivery if appropriate.
