    hi transgor and welcome!

    i must say i really don't know the proper word, anyway if you are looking for the meaninig, a "bilico centinato telonato" is a semitrailer provided with ribs and a huge canvas to cover it (no hard top)

    as i tried to explain:

    bilico = semitrailer, is a kind of big lorry
    telonato = ricoperto con un telone = the semitrailer structure is covered with a 'canvas'
    centinato = the structure is made with ribs to strenghten it

    Hello,

    Can someone please help me about the english translation of "centinato" e "furgonato"?
    These words are used to describe trailer types.

    Thanks,

    I know that it's much too late to reply to this thread, but I've just been researching road transport terminology and I've found:
    rimorchio centinato = curtainsider trailer
    Thought I'd add it in case it might be useful to someone in the future, Sarah.
