Winkel Quality Flatbeds ...the BEST Choice!

Better than a hired-hand, Winkel Custom Flatbeds will dependably work for you night and day for the lifetime of your truck....maybe even longer!  From Texas to North Dakota, from Colorado to Ohio, Winkel Flatbeds are seen moving down roads--working from feedlot to field, to pasture and back to rancher and farmers' yards everywhere.


We understand what you expect and need behind the cab of your trucks.  Built with knowledge garnered from our own everyday use and experiences, plus that of numerous others,  our flatbeds are designed with common sense, hard working application in mind.  They're solidly constructed to standup to your demands, expectations and rigors of everyday use.
