deep-drop furniture/electronics trailer (van)
(road transportation) A large box truck trailer designed to transport bulky, fragile, and relatively light cargo (weight to volume). Deep-drop vans are used especially in the transport of furniture, household goods, and electronics. Features include rear swing doors, one or two side swing doors (depending upon the length of the trailer), a lower rear deck to facilitate loading and create greater cargo capacity, air-ride suspensions to protect fragile cargo, lockable belly compartments, and ramps. The standard axle/wheel configuration is 2-axle/8-wheel.
