About Us

Royal Truck Bodies is widely recognised as the No. 1 Manufacturer of Bread Van bodies in the Southern African Bread industry.

Royal Truck Bodies was founded 1993, after many years of successfully manufacturing Aluminium van bodies, in 1997 the range expanded into GRP dry freight, Insulated and refrigerated bodies. In response to numerous requests from our customers, the next logical expansion took place introducing Trailers, Tautliners, Drop-sides, Tippers, Rollbacks, Flat Decks, and special purpose-built bodies, becoming a one stop shop.

To complete this objective, we launched our own successful branding business ‘RTB JUST BRAND IT.” Offering professional vehicle branding solutions which also include digital vehicle wraps.

Our van bodies are lighter than any other standard van body manufacture based on our modular aluminium clip lock frame system, only the rear frame is steel, providing a rigid support to the body for extra protection. This design greatly reduces the overall, ultimately resulting in a fuel saving and other running costs, while optimizing payload, A longer body life will also be ensured as Aluminium does not rust.

Our Beast Tipper range although might be Slightly expensive are only supplied with the best hydraulics money can Buy and similar Hydraulics are fitted to our range of Gorilla Rollbacks.

Royal Truck Bodies offers various other services like: Sandblasting, Rubberizing, Panel beating, Light Weight design Facility, 

Royal Truck Bodies operates out of Anderbolt Boksburg, Our 18000m² Facility has a production capacity of four truck bodies per day and 10 Trailers per month.
