Used curtainsider trucks need to be reliable in spite of their age and must be equipped with enough cab features to keep drivers happy. And buying a vehicle of this kind with Scania’s distinctive name tag attached will deliver on both counts. You will tend to encounter models from this firm in the weight category of 18 tonnes and up, with curtainsider bodies that can accommodate a range of load types depending on the application you intend for this type of vehicle.
Sleeper cabs are also a regular feature of these trucks, making room for a driver to spend a comfortable night on board while still giving them an enjoyable time while they are behind the wheel. From stop-start short-range distribution to longer journeys on the motorway and even on to the Continent, a curtainsider from Scania can be a sensible investment in the right circumstances.
Buyers who want a Scania curtainsider truck that is both affordable and practical may wish to opt for some of the older second-hand models, which still retain the key features that are sought after in this category. The 3 Series and 4 Series represent solid choices in this respect, with 18 tonne operating weights and spring suspension systems ensuring that they are a cost-effective choice.

Even models which have plenty of miles on the clock can be worth investing in as long as they are well maintained, and the presence of an MOT is a good sign that a used example still has lots of life left in it. The thing to take into account when buying older curtainsiders is that fuel efficiency and emissions will not be up to modern standards, but this is offset by the lower upfront costs that are applicable in this instance.
For curtainsiders that come with a few more mod cons and the latest Euro-compliant engines, the Scania R Series is a popular option in the 18 tonne bracket. There are also 26 tonne P Series models available, offering a little more room and power to help handle heavier loads. Features such as air suspension and all-round electrics in the cab are common on recent additions to the Scania family. Meanwhile, finding a curtainsider with a built-in tail lift is also easy if you select models from this manufacturer. Just check that this part still operates properly, because if it is showing signs of deterioration, then you may have to foot the bill for repairs further down the line.
In the cab the Scania curtainsiders can offer everything from optimised automatic gearboxes with advanced cruise-control settings to comprehensive navigation systems and a range of entertainment options to keep the driver comfortable and engaged for a long shift at the wheel. Different cab configurations and dimensions can be selected from new, meaning used buyers will need to check the spec sheet of a unit with care to get a full understanding of what it can offer. Different curtainsider body shapes on Scania units can help with aerodynamic compliance and fuel efficiency, while barn doors or a rolling door at the rear will also be available on the various trucks. Take your time and choose wisely when buying a curtainsider.
