If you did that it would not be enclosed.
A "Vanscaper" body is an enclesed body. It's a box that has a dove tail built into it's floor. I would much rather prefer a normal flat floor box, because you lose a lot of storage space for your equipment. You can store equipment on the ramped section of the floor, but your going to go through a lot of roll-up doors if you don't tie your mowers down each and every time you put them on the truck.
I went looking for some vanscaper body pics & found this link...
How much is a Landscaper body 16' with a 1997 mitsubishi 64k miles on it worth? From Supreme Body co.
Myself, I am not in the LTL trucking business yet, however my entire extended family is, and when we are using these trucks 24 hours a day and 5 days a week, we know which ones are reliable and which one's aren't. I don't think that a landscaper's truck is something that doesn't take any abuse from mowing crews to towing heavy trailers..It's sort of amazing how badly we can all differ on our opinions...
Wow Mike, Staples does heavy-duty trucking now, amazing..Office products and trucking...a great combination!
