Term Definition

A van or truck with an open load area that has short vertical sides and a vertical tailgate. The side panels are known as dropsides because they can be unfastened and opened outwards - so that they hang down vertically, leaving the load area open.

Dropsides are particularly useful for awkward-shaped, large loads and for transporting building supplies and other such items.
