The stock of demountable bodies has been reduced in recent years, with 8 believed to remain in stock for use with the 4 lorries capable of carrying them. DB14 is unique in being a box body with a crew compartment in the front section. When seen in the lorry yard at Acton Works on 10th July 2021 it looked to have been recently repainted in all white. Another change is the addition of two external lights at the top front corners.

The yellow logo at the bottom left of the front is that of 'We Make Sparks', the brand for Sparks Welding Services of Slough. This company does vehicle maintenance and modifications, and also now vehicle leasing and hiring (the logo is also carried by the two newest staff welfare facilities vans). The logo seems to be of a bearded welder with tools behind, arranged to look like a horned Viking helmet!
Perhaps more interestingly, the blue plate below this logo states that the vehicle was 'Custom built by Feltham Commercial Coachworks Ltd'. Feltham Coachworks are listed as the manufacturers of bodies DB20, DB22, DB23 and DB24, but all of DB1 to DB18 have always been listed by LUL/DSM as having been built by Locomotors.
