Tom Garcia of Marathon Truck Body shows off a 14' Dry Van Body mounted on an E350 Cutaway Chassis. Check out the Lift-Assist on the cargo ramp! Those things are heavy, but this feature sure makes it easy. Sometimes it is the simplest things that are meaningful, like that sliding door without rattles.
Since a Dry Van Body is just a box on wheels, there is so many modifications that can be made to make it more useful for individual company use, such as, side doors, walk-up side door openings, windows, translucent roof, E-Track, plywood lining, Gelcoat lining with added insulation for refrigeration to just keep things cool or to keep them frozen. Plus there is the ramp as shown, liftgates, railgates, swing-away doors rather than roll-up doors and the list goes on and on.
