Question Information about Classy Cassis Trucks

Good evening everyone,
I came across a magazine article reviewing the above company. Has anyone heard of them or bought one of there products. They specialize in creating/building custom aluminum storage beds for Campers and Fifth wheel trucks. Removing the factory truck beds and selling them. They specialize in mainly HD Chevy and Dodge 3500's along with Ford's F-350's bigger. I like the idea of having extra storage on my truck, but I believe this would decrease your Trucks GVWR and decrease your towing limit weight for safely towing your fifth wheel or upgrading later.
I am planing on using a Dodge 3500 Laramie Maga Cab 6.7L Diesel Dually. Towing a 30' Jay Co Eagle Fifth Wheel. Anyway to end this long story, i have tried to find customer reviews on line about the company and could only find Two dated in 05 both rated at 5 *****. What do you you think.
Thanks for your time.

I haden't heard of their name till now. Now that is see what it is I like the looks of it very much.
If you are concerend about being close on the wieght limmits then you really need to move up a notch or 2 on you truck size choice.
I'd defintly look at the Dodge 4500 or the Ford 450s over the 3500s or F-350s.

I had a good look and chat with the guys from Classy Chassis at the Tampa RV show last January. I found them to be very helpful and informative.

While there I had a very close look at one of their F-450's, and was impressed. Beyong the hauler bed, they put a package in to spruce up the interior. The bed itself was very solidly built, and cleanly welded. There was loads of storage compartments in the one I fiddled with, as well as an extended fuel tank. As I recall the truck had a total of about 90 gallons. (Yes, nightmare come fillup day)

All in all, I liked what I saw, and would buy one on the used market, although the new units were a bit pricey for my wallet.

Send me a PM, with an e-mail address, and I can send you pictures of what they did to my 04.5 Dodge. I had new seats put in. They did an excellent job. I don't know how to post pictures to the thread, or I would do that. They are on Rt. 30 in Valpo, Indiana. Tom is a nice guy to talk to. They also put a tool box/fuel tank in my 99 Powerstroke.

Regards,
