Renovation and aerodynamic improvement of a BPW closed trailer

Present your DIY projects, your new technical ideas, your innovations to test or your self-construction work. Because doing it yourself is often more economical and can be more efficient.

I just had BPW on the phone, a priori when I said that the trailer was probably from 1980, she did not directly say that it was impossible...they are looking at what they can do... So there is some hope...

I came across this video of an engineer (Indian apparently by accent) who added rear deflectors/spoilers to a bus and suddenly does better than the engineers from the design offices of MAN, SCANIA, MICHELIN...etc., etc... : Shock: : Mrgreen: : Lol:



So I'm reposting this old Tatra ad:

Well, hope was short-lived... :(

Hello,

The certificate of conformity must be provided by the trailer manufacturer. BPW is the axle manufacturer.

BPW no longer produces this type of axle. The plant was sold to the AL-KO company.

Best regards


...

I'm going to relaunch AL-KO but without much hope...
