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 in 1993. After many years of successfully manufacturing aluminum van bodies, our range expanded into GRP dry freight, insulated and refrigerated bodies in 1997. In response to numerous customer requests, the next logical expansion took place introducing Trailers, Tautliners, Drop-sides, Tippers, Rollbacks, Flat Decks, and special purpose-built bodies, becoming the ultimate, one-stop shop.

To complete this objective, we launched our 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 manufacturer, due to our modular aluminum clip lock frame system. Our steel rear frame provides a rigid support to the body for extra protection. This design greatly reduces the overall weight, resulting in lower fuel and running costs, while optimizing payload. A longer body life will also be ensured as Aluminium does not rust.

Our Beast Tipper series, while slightly pricier, comes equipped with top-of-the-line hydraulics that money can buy. These same high-quality hydraulics are also installed in our Gorilla Rollbacks series.

Royal Truck Bodies offers various other services such as Sandblasting, Rubberizing, Panel beating, and an in-house Design Facility, 

Royal Truck Bodies operates out of Anderbolt Boksburg, boasting an 18000m² facility that has a production capacity of four truck bodies per day, and 10 trailers per month.
