Utility body for trucks

A.R.E. offers new SpaceKap Compak slip-in utility body for trucks.


Massillon, Ohio—Truck cap and tonneau cover manufacturer A.R.E. is now offering the new SpaceKap Compak slip-in utility body as part of its commercial fleet product line.

The SpaceKap Compak, manufactured by Canadian-based Fibrobec Inc., is a cab-high, insert-type commercial unit with a low-profile roof line that allows for safe access to parking decks and other low clearance areas, making it an ideal height design for urban areas and municipalities. The Compak is available for 6-foot and 8-foot truck beds and comes standards with a unique 40/60 rear door for easy access. Additional features include an LED interior lighting package, stainless steel hinges, automotive grade door retainers, an HD aluminum door sill and aluminum diamond plate panels to protect the rear doors from shifting cargo.

“The Compak slip-in utility body is a great addition to the SpaceKap product line and meets a variety of needs in industries like telecommunications, general contracting and emergency response,” said Jim Blayne, commercial/fleet division sales manager at A.R.E. “Designed to increase efficiency, the SpaceKap Compak has practically unlimited interior customization options and a unique tie-down system that allows users to quickly install or remove the cap in minutes. Plus, its low-profile design provides less wind resistance, which translates into savings at the gas pump.”

In addition to the Compak, seven other SpaceKap models offer solutions for various industries and load capacity needs. SpaceKap products are self-contained mobile units constructed of double-sided fiberglass walls – insulated to avoid condensation inside the unit – as well as a reinforced floor and stainless steel hardware.

The SpaceKap, which can be customized with optional doors, windows, interior shelves, dome lights, ladder racks and more, is built to spec for most compact, mid-size and full-size pickups on the road today. SpaceKap products install easily and require no drilling or modification to the truck bed. They are available through A.R.E.’s network of more than 600 authorized dealers, who provide nationwide product availability and customer service.
