    Hi all,
    I would like to find the word for the back of a freight trailer. In Spanish it is callled caja ( where the truck carries the goods to be transported, e.g. wood, sand, etc.)
    Thank you very much

    A truck that carries frieght is, as far as I know, divided into two parts: the truck (the vehicle with the motor and the driver) and the trailer (the box with the cargo).

    what about the "box trailer"?

    I googled some images and most of them are like very small "box trailers"...and I would like to know the term for this one : http://www.hobbiesguinea.com/images/56302.jpg , is it the same name for these?

    You want to know the term in Spanish?

    The only difference I can see between this trailer in the photo and a traditional trailer is the height -- the one in the picture looks shorter that the trailers that are common in the U.S.
