A tarpaulin-covered trailer's body is known as an "edscha trailer". The entire roof as well as the side panels of the tarpaulin can be moved forward or backward like curtains. This indicates that cranes can load the truck from the top as well as the side.
The manufacturer Edscha creates original equipment manufacturer (OEM) car convertible roof systems. It comes from a German vehicle provider. Eduard Scharwächter founded the Edscha business in Remscheid in 1870.
In as early as 1969, Edscha submitted an application for the initial truck sliding top patent. The movable roofs are still being improved upon today and simplify lives for drivers and loading staff.
