A.R.E. and Kargo Master Team Up to Make Work Trucks Work Better for Contractors

March 6, 2006

MASSILLON, OHIO - A.R.E. and Kargo Master are making work trucks more functional for tradesmen.Now, when contractors visit an authorized A.R.E. dealer, they can transform their ordinary pickup into a work truck by having an A.R.E. Deluxe Commercial Unit (DCU) and a Kargo Master Pro II Series universal truck rack installed together. “The DCU offers contractors a safe and secure place to store tools and other valuable equipment, while the Kargo Master rack allows them to easily transport large items necessary to complete a job, such as lumber, drywall or ladders. The addition of a Kargo Master Pro II Series rack also frees up space inside the DCU for hauling more gear,” said Bryan Baker, marketing director, A.R.E. The rack has a 1,700-lb. cargo capacity and is available for most pickup trucks. It is specifically designed to work with pickup trucks that are being outfitted with fiberglass or commercial truck caps. Kargo Master's Pro II Series racks have 6-inch extensions to the legs in order to accommodate truck caps with extra height. The A.R.E. DCU is constructed from a rugged, fully welded aluminum frame, for years of reliable service. A.R.E has more than 200 options, including a variety of door and window configurations, colors, toolboxes, custom ladder racks, interior fabric liners, side panels, and overall cap heights. A.R.E. can also custom-build a DCU to exact customer specifications in less than 14 days. DCU units and Kargo Pro II Series racks installed by authorized A.R.E. dealers are backed by the customer satisfaction warranties of A.R.E. and Kargo Master, respectively.
