The Plaxton Beaver, originally known as the Reeve Burgess Beaver, is a minibus body built by Plaxton. It was built at the Pilsley, Derbyshiremarker factory of Plaxton's Reeve Burgess subsidiary from 1987-1991, at Plaxton's main Scarboroughmarker factory from 1991, and from 1995 at Anstonmarker in South Yorkshire.

The Beaver has been built mainly on Mercedes-Benz van-derived minibus chassis such as the 709D and 811D, and was also built on the Renault S56 and S75 until 1992. Rare examples were also built on Iveco 49.10 chassis.

The Beaver 2, built on Mercedes-Benz Vario chassis, replaced the original Beaver in December 1996, and is still in production as of 2007. In 2006 Plaxton launched the Beaver 3, the Beaver 2 body combined with the front end of a Plaxton Cheetah.
