Renault appoints TruckCraft Bodies as official converter19 February 2020

Groupe Renault UK has appointed TruckCraft Bodies as official supplier of its factory-built Renault Master Luton Box and Renault Master Luton Low Loader conversions.

The Greater Manchester-based bodybuilder has a production facility with 60 bays, so can supply vehicles at short notice.

The LCVs are key models in the manufacturer’s Pro+ Commercial Vehicles ‘Off the shelf’ line-up, available to purchase from Renault dealerships.

The appointment of TruckCraft Bodies, says Renault, will ensure that customers can benefit from easily accessible, ready-made conversions conforming to Renault’s standards, including the same three-year/100,000-mile warranty as a regular Pro+ panel van.

The Master Luton Box LL35 (long length, 3.5-tonne) comes with the Euro 6D-compliant dCi 130 2.3-litre turbodiesel engine, paired with a six-speed manual gearbox, and is available in front-wheel drive or rear-wheel formats.

The conversion offers a payload of up to 1,175kg, with standard features such as load lock rails, lashing points, load area lighting, Luton head storage, rear step and rear roller shutter.

The Master Luton Low Loader LL35 (long length, 3.5-tonne) can be specified with dCi 135 or Energy dCi 150 engines, which are paired as standard to a six-speed manual transmission. The Energy dCi 150 engine is also available with the Quickshift6 six-speed automatic gearbox.

The Low Loader has a payload of 1,250kg and a loading height of 550mm.

Stephen Whitcombe, head of brand for Pro+ Commercial Vehicles, Groupe Renault UK, says: “TruckCraft Bodies has already proved to be a highly valued partner for our accredited ‘Tailor Made’ convertor programme and we are pleased to now extend the relationship to include the build of two of our most popular ‘Off the shelf’ conversions.

“The scale and expertise of its operation, plus the quality of its work, ensures that ‘Off the shelf’ conversion customers continue to enjoy the benefits of specialised light commercial vehicles combined with the convenience of easy ordering and the peace of mind that the entire vehicle is covered by a comprehensive manufacturer warranty.”
