Sometimes a generic bed just doesn’t cut it. Maybe you need a bed that is built to outlast the economy beds you’ve bought in the past, or survive the rough terrains you operate on.

We can help you organize your compartments, offer you the specialized equipment you need for your job, and guide you with the experience that comes from a company that’s been family owned and operated since 1958.

TIMELINE
(1922-1958)

Douglass Family Business

(1922-1958)

Douglass Truck Bodies Incorporated has been a fixture in the Service Body and Work Truck Community since 1958, however the Douglass story truly begins in 1922. Relocating to California with merely $50 in his pocket, Clinton Douglass Sr. proved himself to be a true entrepreneur. His business ventures included property investment, partnership in oil leases, building canvas tops for cars, as well as selling used cars and trucks.

His son, Clinton Douglass Jr., returned from World War II where he was serving as a pilot in Europe and took over the family business selling used cars and trucks in 1946. In the early 1950's he started buying used cab & chassis from the telephone company, which required him to search out used pickup beds that he could install on the trucks before selling them. However, he soon found beds becoming scarce.

After a few months he remembered, "I had bought all the used beds I could find. At this point I wanted to try my hand at building a pickup truck body. Wanting something different than an average pickup bed, we decided to integrate side-locking compartments while retaining the normal pickup bed height." Thus the creation of Douglass Silhouette Service Body.
