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 to minimize the possibility of infiltration that can compromise cargo. And an optional translucent roof is also available to take full advantage of ambient light throughout the cargo area.

Aluminum Truck Body Wall Construction

Affordability and light weight 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, and lower operating costs. 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 for your truck body and your payload. 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.
