When it comes to optimizing your work truck’s functionality, Clark Truck Equipment in Crawfordsville, Indiana understands the importance of choosing the right upfitting solutions. This month, we want to introduce you to a game-changer in the world of work truck customization: Knapheide Utility Vehicle (KUV) Bodies!

Say goodbye to the days of endlessly searching for tools and parts in the back of your cargo van. With KUV Bodies, you can revolutionize your workflow and maximize your productivity!

The Knapheide KUV Advantage

Knapheide’s Steel Utility Bodies are designed with one goal in mind: to make the life of technicians and contractors easier. These bodies create an optimized organization system within your work truck, dividing the storage space into manageable compartments that are externally accessible from both sides of the body. Imagine pulling up to a job site, stepping out of the cab, and immediately having quick access to the tools and parts you need, without the hassle of crawling into the cargo area! Hint: that’s the convenience KUV Bodies offer.

A Place for Everything

For technicians who need to transport longer items like copper pipes, PVC, or conduit, KUV Bodies come equipped with dedicated conduit chutes. These chutes allow you to securely store these items without cluttering the floor of the cargo area. KUV Bodies make it easy to keep everything organized and accessible whether you’re on or off the job.

Durability and Efficiency are Knapheide’s Best Traits

We know that durability is essential when it comes to work vehicles, and at Clark Truck Equipment, we only recommend the best. Knapheide understands this too, which is why they construct their KUV Bodies using rugged galvanneal steel. This material is as tough as your toughest job, and is made to withstand harsh work conditions.
