The Fluid Analyzing Van illustrates the capabilities of General Truck Body to make custom alterations to a standard factory built van. Customer requirements included a custom cabin top, cut-away of the van itself, and alterations to the body, which were all custom features installed by General Truck Body. The interior of the Fluid Analyzing Van was also tailored to the customer’s needs. Alterations included access from the driver’s seat to the rear without opening doors, which allows easy access to storage at the rear of the vehicle. In addition, the rear cabin’s interior is high enough for the operator to stand. Plus, the proximity of the input/output materials to the rear of the Fluid Analyzing Van prevent contamination of the interior control areas.
The interior of this Fluid Analyzing Van exhibits the control area and demonstrates the capabilities of the pop-up cabin top to accommodate cabinetry, sinks, storage and microwave ovens. The cabin’s interior is high enough for the operator to stand. The rear doors on a standard factory van have been altered to half double doors with a single rear windshield, which allows for easier exit and entry, plus better viewing. Fluids can be brought in from the rear without any exposure to the interior control area. Samples can be taken and analyzed without having to exit the van. Information can easily be transmitted via the on-board computers and electronics.
