Product Walk-Around || All-New Aluminum Classic II Service Body

At the 2020 NTEA Work Truck Show, we revealed the all-new aluminum Classic II. Watch as we take you on a tour of this next-gen service body. With an all-new understructure that raises the bar for rugged reliability, the revamped Classic II can take you where other bodies can't: on gravel, dirt, and ungraded roads. And with features like Masterack® CABLOC drawer unites and Latchmatic® Locking Systems, you'll see we've upgraded more than the understructure.

Material Rack vs Forklift-Loadable Rack. What Are The Differences?

Michael Osborne demonstrates the differences between the standard Material Rack vs the Forklift-Loadable Rack. Generally speaking, the material rack is loaded by hand and the forklift-loadable rack can be loaded with a forklift. It mainly depends on what materials you need to carry and how often. Both racks carry material and how that material needs to get up there is going to determine the best rack for you. At Paradise Fleet, we carry both designs in stock and if you would like to see the differences in person, we are happy to show you for yourself.

Work Truck Wednesday - Crew Cab Knapheide KUV Protects Tools & Cargo

The Knapheide KUV is extremely popular with plumbers and other contractors on cutaway chassis and for larger bodies on the new Silverado Medium Duty or the Low Cab Forward chassis, but the KUV-CC (CC means conventional cab) is becoming more and more popular with a wide variety of contractors and service providers. There is a very good reason. The KUV is an enclosed service body and the one shown here is the low roof model, and it comes in two other roof heights for those who need that flexibility. Because it is enclosed, your cargo is protected inside and your tools and other gear are stowed in the compartments on the outside. 

Want to get really creative with this unit? We can add a bed slider to make it easy to get things in and out, and there are numerous other ideas that can be helpful as well. Let our team help you find the perfect solution for your business needs by calling 951-252-2980.

This unit has special financial incentives because it was used as an executive demo and so it is already broken in and ready to go to work right away.
