MASSILLON, Ohio – A.R.E. announces it will offer the SpaceKap CAT slip-in utility body designed to turn work trucks into the ultimate toolbox for everyone from small contractors to large fleet operators.
The SpaceKap CAT is a new self-contained mobile unit featuring one-piece construction and double-sided fiberglass walls insulated to prevent condensation inside the unit.  Available for 6-foot and 8-foot truck beds, the SpaceKap CAT comes standard with the company’s popular 40/60 rear doors that allow for easy access to equipment.  It also features interior LED lighting, stainless steel hinges, interior molded wooden rails to attach shelving, automotive grade door retainers, an HD aluminum door sill and aluminum diamond plate panels to protect the rear doors from shifting cargo.
A second version of the SpaceKap CAT is also available featuring full length side access doors with interior shelving and sliding trays to create an efficient workspace.
“The SpaceKap concept was developed more than 20 years ago to make a universal and transferable mobile truck cap that was durable yet lightweight,” said Jim Blayne, National Fleet Sales Manager at A.R.E.  “The new SpaceKap CAT is ideal for plumbers, electricians and contractors who desire an effective alternative to vans.  It has 56 inches of interior height and can be outfitted with a rolling cargo bed that allows for more ergonomic access to gear.  Professionals can pull their tools and equipment out to them, eliminating the need to crawl into the truck bed and lift heavy items.”
Designed to increase efficiency, the SpaceKap CAT has a unique tie-down system that allows users to quickly install or remove the cap in 15 minutes or less.  If professionals want to leave the cap at the jobsite, four camper jacks can be used to hold the 550 lb. unit while the truck is pulled away.
The cap, which can be customized with optional windows, interior shelves, ladder racks and more, is built to spec for most compact, mid-size and full-size pickups on the road today.
A.R.E. is the exclusive U.S. distributor for the SpaceKap product line (excludes Washington and Oregon), which is available through their network of more than 650 authorized dealers, who provide nationwide product availability and customer service. 
A.R.E. began manufacturing aluminum frame truck caps in 1969 and has become a leading manufacturer of fiberglass truck caps and hard tonneau covers.  At its ISO-9001:2008-certified manufacturing facilities, A.R.E.’s more than 700 employees create the products that are sold through a network of more than 650 independent authorized dealers.  For more information, contact A.R.E. at 400 Nave Rd.
