The Utilimaster 20-foot walk-in van, customized to serve the laundry and linen service market, has a variety of features designed to make both soiled and clean product transportation safer and easier. (Customer feedback video posted below).
The van includes a 10.1-inch in-dash radio / back-up monitor unit with a 360-degree camera vision system, 100 percent interior and exterior LED lighting, and curbside shutter door option for product staging and two-wheel hand cart storage. The van also features a number of Utilimaster-patented designs to keep cargo safely in place, including SafeLoad, locking cart and locking garment rail systems.
