A total of nine standard models are available which include several different body height and length combinations compatible with the Transit cutaway chassis.  The KUV is designed to be an ideal commercial vehicle for plumbing, electrical, and construction applications.

Products available for the Transit cab chassis include the Knapheide service body and Value-Master X platform body. Much like the KUV, the Knapheide service body provides secure and versatile storage enabling mobile technicians to find the parts, tools, and equipment they need when they need it.  

Knapheide’s Value-Master X platform body features a reinforced understructure and a variety of floor materials to choose from including pine or apitong wood, smooth steel, and tread plate. The versatility of  the Value-Master X makes it a body solution for landscaping, construction, and agriculture environments.

All bodies for the Transit cutaway and cab chassis are constructed of galvanneal steel and fully immersed in Knapheide’s exclusive electrodeposition prime paint system translating into superior corrosion resistance and years of reliable service in the field, the company says.
