Harbor Mechanic's Body with 56" Compartments, Plus Options Galore

 
Here is a Harbor 56" Service Body with crane reinforcement and set up for a crane which was to be installed locally. Some might call this a Mechanic's Body too. Check out all the optional drawers, how big the compartments are because of the height of the body, the external lighting arrangement, 3-piece cargo bed enclosure with barn style rear doors, cabinet with bottle brackets and rings for welder bottles, master locking system, plus heavy duty forklift loadable rack (of course, we need that to get the stuff up there!), and rack straps to hold it down tight.. Notice also that the typical horizontal doors over the wheels are so tall they have vertical style doors.

Bright Red Chev 3500 Crew Cab with a Harbor Contractor Body


This Harbor Contractor Body started out as a flatbed, we added tool boxes, a rack, short gates, load divider, clean looking tapered headboard, that’s all standard equipment. The 10' is mounted on Super Cab and Crew Cab trucks thereby keeping the overall length manageable.

The Harbor Truck Bodies Contractor Body has become an extremely popular body and for good reason. The open top service body style tool boxes on top allow for storage of small items or long items, with plenty of storage in the fold-down storage area. The underbed boxes give even more storage for tools large and small. Then, the short rear gates help keep things in place when needed and then get out of the way to use that space to work on. The load divider is helpful in separating loads that are best kept apart. The tapered headboard doesn't obstruct the view and the tapered HD rack carries a lot of building materials to the job site effectively. To top it all off is the huge storage space on top of the bed. It is very popular with a wide variety of contractor types and that is precisely why we call it a Contractor Body.

LA County Gets a Red Ram Harbor-Built Fire Truck




Los Angeles County gets a very sharp looking Ram Crew Cab Dually fire truck with a Harbor TradeMaster service body. This unit has a 2 piece cargo bed enclosure to provide an out of sight cargo secure.

Harbor Truck Bodies' standard TradeMaster service/utility body offerings are the 8' and 9' Single Rear Wheel models, along with 8', 9', 11' Dual Rear Wheel models. We also offer a 6.5' for HD short bed trucks and a 13' or 15' for longer wheelbase trucks. Since we manufacture this product, we can build bodies to specific needs, but our standardized models will be the most cost-effective.

Cargo Bed Enclosures are very popular options that help keep cargo in the bed area out of sight and secure. They are sometimes called a rolltop or rolltop enclosure or telescopic sliding roof. They are made in sections where one portion slides under another to open up an area in an otherwise covered bed.

Harbor Truck Bodies Cargo Bed Enclosures are available in 2-piece for 8' and 9' bodies and so it opens up approximately half or 50% of the bed area when the top is pushed all the way rearward and the 3-piece for the 8' and larger bodies that opens up approximately two thirds or 66% of the bed area.
