Great Dane trailer driving in the desert. Sahara

As the demand for final mile delivery services heats up, the need for smaller delivery vehicles that can navigate residential and small business areas becomes even more critical. The Sahara Series dry freight truck body meets this need and more with the proven technology of Great Dane trailers built into a compact and efficient truck body.

Sturdy Foundation

The Sahara’s standard floor system is a sturdy, fork-truck-loading capable 1-1/8” hardwood flooring. It features 3” wax-coated steel crossmembers that are mounted on 12” centers with an option for 8” centers in the rear 56” of the truck body.

Strong Front Wall

The Sahara’s front wall is constructed with a one-piece extruded aluminum top rail for added strength and leak prevention. A corrosion-resistant aluminum bottom rail, which is bolted to wax-coated steel crossmembers, supports the frame and adds strength.

Durable Roof System

The Sahara’s roof system features an aluminum roof sheet supported by 18-gauge galvanized steel and anti-snag roof bows mounted on 24” centers. A puncture-resistant translucent fiberglass roof sheet is also available.
