TailWing New

Semi-automatic swinging tail wing for vehicles with tarpaulin roof and tailgate

The fast and frequent opening of the cargo area is a considerable time and cost factor for local distribution, small deliveries ‘free to kerbside’ and all other short distance distribution with many loading stations where the driver is responsible for loading and unloading.

The TailWing by Edscha Trailer Systems is a tail wing for sliding roofs that makes it easier, safer, faster and more comfortable to open the entire tailgate area.

The TailWing is completely structurally integrated into the relevant Edscha Trailer Systems sliding roof system and thus offers optimum functionality, robustness and durability.

The TailWing is available in heights of up to 1200 mm and offers all the advantages from more than 40 years of experience with mobile roof systems.

The TailWing construction kit allows an individual adjustment to a maximum width of 2600 mm and a maximum height of 1200 mm.


  • Optimised lifting joint
  • Drastically reduced weight with comparable stability through honeycomb structure composite materials
  • Almost unlimited use of the cargo volume – no protruding components
  • Flexible adjustable sizes
  • Solid functionality

    Robust and torsion-free materials, an advantageous system centre of gravity that prevents bearing wear and mechanical unity with the entire roof guarantee lasting functionality and greatest possible durability.

  • Unlimited functionality of the sliding roof

    The TailWing is directly connected to the end carriage of the roof and is moved along with the entire roof as an integral component. No more unstable double joints like those found on standard retrofit components.

  • Comfortable use

    The TailWing can be easily unlocked by the driver from the ground or the tailgate and then swings open automatically, driven by a powerful spring system. The large opening angle of up to 125° is achieved with a single opening swing movement.
