While all work trucks are utilitarian, there is perhaps none more so than the tow body. Their purpose is simple: safely and reliably transport equipment and materials day in and day out, year after year. Contractors and other labor professionals need to trust that they can safely haul equipment, materials, vehicles and other machinery without the worry of extensive repair or road-side break downs.
However, just because tow bodies perform straightforward tasks, doesn’t mean that you can’t invest in a tow body that makes your work easier, more efficient and more personalized to your specific needs and preferences.
The team at Monroe Truck Equipment has worked with contractors, fleet owners and other professionals who need to rely on the safety and dependability of a strong tow body. While there’s no one answer for any given professional, here is a summary of factors to keep in mind before investing in a T-Series Work Truck:
One of the biggest considerations to make when investing in a tow body is the weight of the equipment or material you will be hauling. Monroe Truck Equipment’s aluminum bodies are corrosion resistant and long-lasting while offering increased payloads due to their lightweight.
Grow Your Business
A lightweight, versatile tow body allows you to invest in a variety of work equipment because it can safely haul equipment and materials of several sizes and weights. Different equipment allows you to expand your service offerings, grow into a new industry and attract new customers.
- 2.5" Receiver Hitch
- 7-Way RV Trailer Plugs
- Fold Down Sides
- 6 Recessed D-Rings
- Full Body Skirts with Integrated Toolboxes
- Aluminum with Steel Understructure
- LED Stop, Turn, Tail & Backup Lights
- B&W Turnover Gooseneck Ball Hitch 30K
Offers ample room for transporting and keeps small tools and equipment safely stowed underneath.
Side Tool Boxes
Stay organized with easy to reach toolboxes. These lockable boxes ensure your tools are safe in transport and on the job, without having to keep your belongings locked in your cab.
Fold-down rails helps to secure equipment or other large items that are being transported. They can also be used to protect the truck bed against dents during transportation. Fold-down rails make safe transportation much more simple, and can be stowed away when not in use.
Built to last, our tow series enables you to keep organized, work optimally, and improve your productivity by reducing back and forth trips for tools and parts.
“I’ve done business with Monroe Truck Equipment for over 35 years. I have to say we love the TowPRO Aluminum body. We’ve ordered several of them and the customers love them. The best thing about it is that you’ll never see rust on it, and there’s more payload available because aluminum is lighter than steel.”

Consider GVWR With Upfits
If you are towing heavy materials regularly, knowing the weight of your materials will help make safe upfitting decisions. When determining the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating you need, add the average weight of the materials and equipment you bring to work every day.
Warranties help you feel secure in your purchase and protect your investment. A good work truck manufacturer will offer a clear warranty, so you can build your business with confidence.
Partners vs Vendors
Trucks are a huge investment that will be used for years. Therefore, making sure you have a truck that's upfitted to your needs and specifications is of the utmost importance. Do your best to find a manufacturer and dealership that you can develop a trusted partnership with. While your priorities may shift over time, a reliable manufacturer and upfitting partner will always be valuable when you’re working toward your long term goals.
Long Term ROI
Making wise investments when upfitting your tow body can ensure long term value when investing in your truck. When considering how long your equipment will last, the variety of services you can offer, and the ease of use over time, long term value can be truly built into your truck.
