View Full Version : Hauler body

05-03-2020, 11:30 AM
Hi, we have been thinking about purchasing a larger 5th wheel and this is bringing me to think about changing trucks also. I would like a one ton DRW with a hauler body like an Elite from utility Body Werks. I'm most likely going to put together a new chassis cab and body. I'm wondering what resale might be on one of these set ups because I usually change trucks every 3 years or so. I can't find a used one for sale anywhere. Any suggestions on where or how to look? Ive searched all the truck and car and equipment traders on line. Thanks for your help in advance.

Have you looked here: https://www.westernhauler.com/

They have used inventory for a resale estimate...

Hello pd2020. I've outfitted several trucks (for work-now retired) by adding after-market flatbeds. Just google pickup flatbeds and you will see the variety. Buy the exact truck you want with cab & chassis and buy the flatbed set up exactly how you want- flatbed dealers will mount the flatbed on your truck. OR, buy the truck you want with a standard bed: flatbed dealers will remove std bed and install new flatbed- store the std bed and then in 3 yrs when ready for new truck have the dealer swap for you. Really not a big deal to swap beds for those companies. Good Luck

Try Douglas bodies and classy chassis.
