Everything in the van is properly maintained and organized for faultless productions

Nino designed and customized the interior of the van including the center cart-shelf that can be unloaded and loaded from the van with most of the equipment staying on it.

With the aid of a wireless remote control, a power winch hidden under the seat effortlessly loads and unloads the cart off the van. Within seconds, a system of cables and pulleys fasten the cart safely to the floor.

Every inch of the interior space is fully utilized for optimum storage and quick access, and there’s still room for the producer.
