Iveco make the perfect trucks for conversions to dropside trucks. They are not expensive, which is perfect, as most dropside trucks find themselves on local distribution work and don’t travel large distances.
The Iveco Eurocargo dropside is the most popular, although the smaller Daily is becoming popular at the 7 tonnes GVW mark. Scaffolders in particular are happy to opt for the Daily – we list these specialist bodies separately as Iveco scaffold trucks.
The 4×2 Eurocargo will convert to a dropside up to 18 tonnes GVW after which point the Stralis takes over. These 6×2 or 8×2 dropsides are often fitted with a crane – again we list these specialist versions of dropside trucks separately as Iveco crane trucks
