Better return on investment than vans

Spacekap, coupled with a 4×4 full-size pickup truck, will be more resistant to rough terrain and potholes than any van on the market today. Plus, you will limit your downtime by efficiently transferring your unit to a new truck if there is a mechanical issue, thus making sure you are always ready to go.


All our units are built with safety features in mind; that’s why we use 40/60 rear doors on all our models that allow our customers to enter their unit by opening only the curbside door and leaving the street side (traffic) door closed. Get your job done safely and securely.

Easy to maneuver

Either our 6.5 or 8 ft version will help you get around more easily. Thanks to our integrated electric door locks, a pickup truck with a tighter turning radius is easier to park to lock; we will help make your job more efficient.

Reliable & Durable

Our products are made to last 15 to 20 years without rust, as all our products use fiberglass, stainless steel, and aluminum. Also, with our specially designed shelving packages from Ranger Design Shelves, you can rest assured they will not get loose but stay strong for as long as you use your Spacekap.
