THE MOBILE OFFICE PROJECT
The Tow Vehicle

PURPOSE

The Mobile Office was designed as an all-weather work environment. The heavy duty construction, when combined with the weight of the battery bank, generator and other heavy components, required a powerful tow vehicle. The Dodge RAM 2500 was equipped with a six-speed manual transmission. Although adequate for traveling in the Midwest, it needed to be beefed up significantly for the challenges of the Rockies. TCR is very grateful to the many manufacturers and installers that helped us complete this task
