This ep is genuinely filmed in New Brighton/Wirral/Liverpool, so unlikely to be same float as /vehicle.php?id=976515 in London; none of the other vehicles in this ep appear in any London ep. Plus this one seems shorter - maybe 4-5 milk crates load bed compared to 7 on that London one

I would say its a more common Rangemaster, the earlier Four-Forty and 1980s Quartermaster (both four wheelers) must be a lot more rare.

The load area can be the same on both 7 long x 4 wide - 28 crates per layer.

The two axles I guess equally applies to the three wheeled vehicles?

However the DVLA revenue weight 3665kg (3.6 tons) possibly could apply to the Quartermaster the lightest Rangemaster being 3.5 tons...
There is nothing to comfirm it visibly here; the load area and offset rear window are the same.

Compare how DVLA have entered this Rangemaster tricycle
Registration number: C847 TLF
Vehicle make W+E
Wheelplan 3 WHEEL
Revenue weight 3500kg

Plus "W&E felt [in the mid-1960s]that the maximum payload for their three-wheeled float was 30 cwt, and ...... bigger payloads required a four-wheeled float" from wiki.

Agree nothing visible in these captures or onscreen to choose 3 or 4 wheels and DVLA not necessarily reliable in these sorts of esoteric gubbins, but 3665kg = 72cwt, so I think the info is pushing this as a 4-wheeler. (Although that highlights the C847 TLF figure of 3500kg as iffy, unless W+E were building better tricycles by the 1980s).
