Features

Improved fuel efficiency saves you money. That's why Morgan's Gold Star Dry Freight bodies feature aerodynamic front-end design that reduces wind-resistance and decreases fuel-consumption. Morgan's patented poly-tuff corners also add up to greater durability and resistance to the elements – both of which mean better protection for your payload!

Dry Freight Gold Star under structure

Morgan’s sub-frames deliver light weight AND uncompromised strength. All-steel sub-frame components and 12-inch on-center support placement, provide strength and durability where it’s needed. Corrosion-resistant extruded steel 3” I-beam cross-members, and 4” longrails, reduce overall weight. And pre-undercoated floorboards provide even greater protection against the elements.

Dry Freight Gold Star rear frame

The rugged galvanealed steel rear frame, and durable imron-white finish, help to protect your body (and your cargo) from the elements! The innovative design of the built-in header, rain deflector and clearance light guard, provide added damage protection. Strategically placed curb and roadside grab-handles, provide a safer, team-friendly work environment! And don’t forget – Morgan offers a variety of options, including rear view cameras, and custom lighting – to suit your unique needs.

Dry Freight Gold Star rear bumper

Moving in and out of the cargo area is made easier with Morgan's 5-inch, pooched-surface structural bumper and textured closure plate. Improved traction supports greater efficiency and safety! And a wide range of bumper configurations – including step, drop-step, intermediate steps, under-ride bumpers, walkramps, and a variety of bumper blocks – are available to make your job even easier!

Visibility in AND outside of the cargo area is easy with Morgan's range of LED lighting packages. Bright LED (FMVSS-compliant) lighting includes a dome-light with indicator-switch mounted in the cab, exterior sealed clearance lights, corner cap, side top rail and rear header lights – as standard on all bodies.

Dry Freight Gold Star rear roll up door

Morgan’s standard overhead roll-up door provides easy access to your cargo, but your unique needs may be better-served through Morgan’s selection of roll-up, swing, panel, or lift doors (with or without ramps). Morgan ALSO offers a variety of door sizes, configurations and placements for even easier access and improved efficiency.

Dry Freight Gold Star interior roof

Morgan's Gold Star roofs use a single piece of .032" mm crowned aluminum sheeting to minimize seams where water tends to infiltrate. The gentle bow is reinforced with anti-snag supports, positioned 24-inches on-center, to provide added strength without adding unnecessary weight. Water sheds quickly so there's less opportunity to compromise cargo. An optional translucent roof is also available to take full advantage of ambient light.

Wall Construction

Aluminum, Morganplate or Fiberglass Reinforced Plywood wall construction ensure solid choices when it comes to the functional qualities you prefer – AND the image you want your Dry Freight, box, straight-truck or van to present! It's easy to see how Morgan earned its reputation for innovative design, quality construction and superior customer service! There's NoBODY Like Morgan!

Morgan Dry Freight aluminum wall construction

Aluminum Wall Construction

Affordability and lightweight are key considerations when it comes to selecting aluminum wall construction for your box, straight-truck or van body, because light weight adds up to reduced fuel consumption. But light weight doesn't mean compromised strength when you have Morgan ingenuity built-in! Extruded aluminum top and bottom rails with 1 3/8" deep galvanized z-shaped steel vertical posts installed 16" on-center, provide superior structural support. And the .040" aluminum skin exceeds industry standards. Aluminum is also corrosion-resistant, making it an excellent choice when it comes to protecting your cargo from the elements year-after-year.

Morgan Dry Freight morganplate wall construction

Morganplate Wall Construction

Morganplate delivers a unique combination of strength and versatility for those who recognize the value in having your body perform double-duty as both a delivery or service vehicle AND an excellent marketing tool! Composite construction – consisting of two external skins thermally bonded to a high-density polyethylene core, makes Morganplate strong, durable, energy absorbent and impact resistant! Innovative design and construction helps to protect your valuable cargo mile-after-mile. On the outside, Morganplate's clean, uninterrupted surface is a perfect canvas for custom-graphics. With Morganplate, beauty is more than skin-deep!

Morgan Dry Freight FRP wall construction

FRP Wall Construction

Morgan's FRP panels includes a 3/8" plywood core, entirely encased in polyester resin reinforced with high-strength woven fiberglass. It's tough. It's durable. And it out-performs the competition when it comes to its ability to resist dents and scratches – inside and out. The smooth exterior surface is also a great place to display custom-graphics and promote your business everywhere you go! Morgan even offers custom paint and decal installation for your convenience!
