One Sweeeet Body! And Big Too!

 
 

Here’s a Truck we built a couple of years ago. It’s a beauty mounted on a light brown metallic GMC 5500 Crew Cab, the Harbor 56" closed top body is enhanced with the addition of a 3-piece raised cargo bed enclosure. What do you suppose they put in there? Whatever they want, I'm sure since there is a ton of room in there. A couple of custom vise mounts, some fold-up steps mounted to the end panels, oversize tailgate, and a forklift loadable rack. Then we get around to the side and see all those beautiful HD drawers! I love drawers in service bodies. The unit also has Harbor's Master Lock System and 2-stage matching paint including inside the compartments.

This is a serious truck with a total luxury feel. It's a truck any serious contractor could love. Let us build one that is perfect for your business!

The Kerins Multi-Hitch



The Multi-Hitch is the original design for all combination hitches used throughout the world today. Started in the early 1970's, the Multi-Hitch combines the more commonly used trailer ball hitches with the more industrial pintle hitch system. The hitch resulted in cost savings, increased safety, performance, ease of use and appearance. Even today, manufacturing methods and packaging are being changed to bring you a more cost effective and attractive product.

The Harbor MasterLock System





The Harbor Truck Bodies MasterLock System is an internal locking bar for additional security of your valuable cargo. You may have seen a long bar and a padlock on some bodies. It is unsightly, but secure. The Harbor MasterLock System achieves the same objective but is on the inside where no one can see it, and it does not use a padlock but the same key as the service body, so you don't have to look around for a different key. You get convenience, great looks and the additional security that gives you peace of mind.

The security is great, but the best feature of the Harbor MasterLock System is the convenience of it. Most people who use a service body, Combo body or WorkMaster are carrying tools and parts and going from one job to the next. Many times you come out to the service body, unlock the compartment and get a tool or two, then lock the compartment, open another compartment and get a part or something and then lock that compartment, go into the job and get to work. Then you come out and do it again and again throughout the day. With the Harbor MasterLock System, you can leave all the side doors unlocked all day and just unlock the MasterLock get what you need and push the button in on the Harbor MasterLock and you're done and your stuff is secure. Isn't that great! No more locking and unlocking all those doors all day long. Then at the end of the day, go ahead and lock all the doors for the added security of being double locked.

No wonder Harbor MasterLock System is one of our most popular options! Once you have it, you will never go back to the old way.

Harbor Offers Over Cab Rack Shield


 


An option for most truck racks is an Over Cab Rack shield protecting the truck cab from debris and loose cargo. Notice the perforated metal headboard allowing visibility to the rear of the truck and the expanded / perforated metal over cab protection. This feature would protect the cab from pipes and conduit or other long cargo that might deflect and cause damage during over- the-road deliveries.

Harbor Service Body Tailgate Options


Many manufacturers offer taller tailgates than the standard. You don't see them very often, but I think if more prospects knew of it as an option, there would be more to see.

This is an example of a 19" optional tailgate on a body built by Harbor Truck Bodies in Brea, CA. There are some shots here of it closed and laying down. This particular body happens to have a raised cargo bed enclosure as well as a horizontal series on the curbside. Of course, Harbor is famous for their standard Stainless Steel lids.
