    Panj, having looked at the pictures I assume that a straight-body truck is one that isn't articulated. Is that your understanding ? :)

    Yes, it's the opposite of semi-trailer truck.

    Straight-body trucks are also called rigid trucks because they cannot bend as opposed to articulated trucks which are bendy.
