If you’re looking to transform your van or cab chassis truck into a fully functional and protected mobile work station, Reading Truck Body has just what you need.
As the leading and largest truck equipment manufacturer in the U.S., we’re home to an exceptional selection of aluminum service van bodies loaded with standard features and customizable options to meet your unique requirements. All of our Classic Service Vans (CSV) and Tool Pro aluminum service van bodies are built using premium materials and precision processes for a service or utility truck that’s as functional as it is professional-looking.
Our aluminum CSV is up to 50 percent lighter than a steel service body and 10 percent lighter than composite or FRP service bodies, for a green alternative that reduces fuel consumption. It comes loaded with exclusive Reading features, such as our Dual-Pro® door seals, stainless steel paddle locks and patented hidden hinges to protect your cargo.
The CSV features a powder-coated, high-strength aluminum alloy shell and a rugged, corrosion-resistant understructure for exceptional durability. It uses the same premium quality and innovative design principles that have made the Classic II™ service truck body the benchmark in the industry.
Since 1955, we’ve been dedicated to building the best possible commercial truck bodies that represent strength, value and innovation. We’re so sure of the quality of our CSV that we back it with an industry-leading 10-year limited warranty. All of the aluminum van bodies we sell are made in the USA and are backed by customer service and support dedicated to your complete satisfaction.
The high-capacity CSV offers a range of configurations and options to let you customize a work van for your business’s individual needs. It was the first aluminum van body built by Reading, and thanks to our commitment to quality and innovation, it remains the gold standard in the industry.
Models come available in 57″, 72″ and 75″ heights for an enclosed work space suited to your specific applications. These commercial service vans are a great option for everything from construction, general contracting and landscaping to telecomm, HVAC, utility and any other industry where a mobile enclosed work space and storage is key to maximizing productivity.
CSV aluminum service vans also feature an all-aluminum fuel cap and receptacle that guards against body damage. Additional rugged features include ultra-durable external compartment doors with an 18-gauge steel skin and reinforced, double panel construction that’s as strong as anything on the market. Inside the enclosed work space, you’ll find galvanized steel shelves with dedicated space for storing smaller items and available vertical compartment options for stowing larger materials and long-handle tools.
Rubber isolated LED break, tail and turn lights come standard for enhanced on-road safety, while roof-mounted dome interior lights complete an organized and professional internal environment that helps you work more efficiently.
Reading has worked closely with Isuzu Commercial Trucks of America to ensure our Tool-Pro aluminum service van will mount universally to the latest Isuzu N-Series chassis. The Tool-Pro continues to maximize driver productivity with plenty of storage space that works well for any vocational segment.
The lightweight, corrosion-resistant aluminum construction offers an appealing total cost of ownership benefit for years to come, delivering up to 50 percent weight savings over comparable steel bodies, yielding up to 10 percent in fuel savings. The Tool-Pro comes with all the standard features of a Reading premium aluminum body, including reinforced understructure, hidden hinge technology, new aluminum roll-up rear access door, Dual-Pro door seals, galvanized shelving, LED lighting, nitrogen strut door holders and Reading’s exclusive E-coat primer and powder-coat finish.
Tool-Pro aluminum van bodies come available for diesel or gas single cab chassis options, featuring the exceptional payload capacity you require in a structurally strong, extremely organized work environment. Anti-slip pooched bumper and hitch body-mounted pooched anti-slip surfaces prevent worker injuries by safely shedding dirt, ice and snow from boots.
Special features such as a master locking system, visual open indicators, double-bitted locking cylinders and O-ring seals create a nearly impenetrable fortress to intruders as well as moisture and harmful elements. Tool-Pro aluminum service van bodies can be custom-designed to suit your specifications and come available with additional options, including Latch-Matic Smart-Shield, keyless locking system access and a three-bar, roof-mounted ladder rack.
