    Mini truck has open backside.

    "Mini truck is a vehicle that has open backside to carry things from one place to other."

    Please check.

    .
    That sentence is perfectly grammatical but makes no sense.

    Perhaps:

    The minitruck opens in the back so you can easily put things in it.

    Re: Mini truck has open backside.

    Backside is a way to say "buttocks". Trucks don't normally have those.

    Re: Mini truck has open backside.

    Do you mean a pick-up truck?

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Mini truck has open backside.

    But there has to be a tailgate to stop the load falling off the back.

    Flatbed trucks like the one in the picture typically have sockets to drop side- and tailgate assemblies into. We call such vehicles stake side trucks in AmE.

    But it's back is permanently open. It cannot be opened.

    Re: Mini truck has open backside.

    Then it's a flatbed minitruck, as we've seen before.

    Re: Mini truck has open backside.

    "It has permanent open back." Is my sentence correct?
