After recently enhancing its two key product lines, Reading Truck Body LLC is now actively taking orders and shipping its updated models of the flagship Classic II and SL service body lines to its customers.
“We’re driven by the needs of our customers,” said Wm. Craig Bonham, VP of Sales and Business Development for Reading Truck Body. “We listen intently to our distributors who carry the voice of the customer back to us, and do our best to improve our product lines to add value and keep operations simple.”
In its quest for delivering quality products, Reading has enhanced the Classic II steel and aluminum service bodies and the SL service body line.
The bodies are designed more ergonomically with a lowered understructure height from 7 inches to 5 inches. With a lower center of gravity, the bodies are built to carry full loads of cargo while giving drivers unwavering maneuverability for jobs. The difference in height also makes it easier to access cabinets, enclose sliding tops and secure cargo areas, all while maintaining maximum compartment depth and an unobstructed load space.
Compartments have been re-engineered with standardized compartment heights to maximize vertical shelving space. The compartment doors are designed for universal fitting of either paddle latch or t-handle latch assemblies.
New standard features now available to all Classic and SL bodies are:
- Standardized floor width to 48.5 inches, so service trucks can easily carry full sheets of contractor-size materials.
- Standardized quick-mount bumpers to simplify and reduce install times for Reading’s distributors.
- Upgraded LED stop, tail, and turn signal lights are now a standard feature for both Classic II and now the SL bodies.
