Milwaukee-based F. Barkow Inc. has announced it is now installing
1 3/8-inch ship-lapped hardwood floors in the bed of its Mongoose
glazing body, as well as on its 8-foot and 12-foot trailers. According
to the company, the hardwood is sturdier and more weather-resistant
than the plywood it was using previously on the Mongoose. The
company says this upgrade has been made without adding any cost
to the customer.
Hardwood has been used on Barkow's P-Model glazing bodies and
large transports for years, as well.
