Hauler Body for Chassis Cab

Hello All;
I am investigating hauler bodies for a Chassis Cab. I can see a number of advantages:
- the additional storage provided
- getting rid of the bed rails that may impact the RV cap.
Any other advantages?

Are there any disadvantages?
Any recommendations on a good mfr.

I've been looking myself for my one ton. Looked at alumalite with a local dealer. Very good looking setup but priced at 17 grand. Looking on line shows several manufacturers across the country in both alumimum and steel. Liked the looks of Herrin Haulers in Texas and a couple of folks in the midwest. Couple more in the south east that I haven't got to yet.
