Police Get New Fifth Wheel Trailer
Don’t worry we’re not trouble – instead we’ve just finished designing and building the UK’s first ever fifth wheel trailer for the police force.
We were commissioned by Nottinghamshire Police to design a bespoke trailer that will be used across the county as a central base at events and incidents that require a semi-permanent police presence. Events include music festivals and the Nottingham Marathon, as well as more serious incidents such as a siege or firearm incidences.
Paul Easter PC, from Nottinghamshire Police Force, said: “This is a totally new vehicle for the police force but we believe the fifth wheel system will be a great addition to the fleet.
“Towing a fifth wheel trailer is much easier than a traditional trailer – we’ll be able to tow a heavier load, plus we’ll be able to unhitch the trailer at an event or incident but still have use of the towing vehicle for other purposes.”
The trailer and towing vehicle has full police livery and is kitted out with laptops, TV screens, an interactive whiteboard, concertinaed briefing area as well as an external TV for outside briefings.
