Quality Built Specialty Vehicles


“Quality prevails long after price is forgotten!"

- Gil Blais, President
La Boit Specialty Vehicles

All La Boit Specialty Vehicles are commercially-built from the chassis up...the way it should be!

A quick comparison of why La Boit Specialty Vehicles are better than a converted RV or bus.

 

"Commercially" Built

Converted RV or Bus

 

Specialty Vehicles FoundationFoundation

3/4” exterior grade plywood floor glued and fastened to the 2” x 2” welded box steel floor framework and attached to the chassis via special vibration dampers.

Fiberglass impregnated 5/8” plywood attached directly to chassis, or I-beams covered by wood planks that are unstable, prone to shifting, lending little structural integrity to the rest of the box, and often found in typical box delivery trucks.

Specialty Vehicles StructureStructure

1 1/2” aluminum box tube framework walls and roof engineered 16” on center.  Continuous Uni-body construction offers a solid engineered cage of protection and strength for anchoring of equipment, walls and cabinetry.  Provides increased durability, longevity and peace of mind.

1” steel, 1” aluminum, or 2” wood frame with support members 24” to 36” on center. Designed to handle occasional use. Some manufactures use less expensive box delivery trucks as their foundation of their product.
