Due to a series of highly adaptable utility trucks procuced by Bedford, over many years, the name became automaticaly associated with the Four Tonner. Used as TCVs, flatbeds and to mount various boxbody type containers, used to house mobile office, workshop and radio detachments, Bedfords are litteraly everywhere. They have proved themselves to be rugged and reliable, if not the most comfortable wagons in the world.

Bedford QL - Steam/old petrol engine
Bedford RL - Petrol engine
Bedford MK - Diesel engine
Bedford MJ - Diesel Turbo
Bedford TM - Diesel 4x4

It was only on the introduction of the much less Squaddy proof DAF 4 tonner that the monopoly was challenged.
