National Training Vehicles/LAB

LDV has been selected to build several of these national training/lab units for a federal customer. Built on a Freightliner MT-55 forward control chassis, these units feature a single in-house fabricated flat floor slide-out, exterior monitor compartment and vehicle leveling system to stabilize the units while deployed. The trucks are powered by Cummins B6.7L diesel engines with Allison 2200 EVS automatic transmissions. Our Intel-I-Touch™ vehicle automation system has been integrated to simplify the setup of the vehicles as well. A Thieman 2,000lb. auto open/close rear liftgate has been installed on each truck as well to assist with loading and unloading specialty equipment. Complete emergency lighting and bright LED scene lights have also been added to each unit. A color backup camera system aids parking maneuvers.

Inside, the vehicles have sliding egress windows for safety. Magnetic soft close pocket doors have also been added to each truck for privacy. Custom flip down seats and spider base task seating is included for staff. Custom aluminum cabinetry provides space for gear and training materials. We also added magnetic surface dry erase white boards throughout for notes. Folding tables and mobile rolling laptop desks are also part of the interior. A small galley is also included.

The HVAC system consists of three low profile A/C units, ceiling ducting and wall mounted thermostats to control the temperature. A PowerTech 15kW liquid cooled diesel generator supplies plenty of electric power to the vehicle. A full vehicle surge suppression system is installed to protect all of the vehicle’s electronics.
