How about this?

This is my mobile set up in a Freightliner 20´step van. 42" plotter fits no problem...48" and above would be pushing it. The last picture is one of my setup in my Ram Promaster van. Same brand plotter. Both of these are the Vinyl Express Q42 which are sold by SignWarehouse.com and are generic rebadged Graphtec FC8600. Same manuals and bladeholders. I have a contact I bought four machines from and she gives good discounts to referrals. A couple of folks off this site have bought from her. PM me if you need her info. Only issue I have run into with being mobile and using plotters is you need to make sure your machine....any plotter.....is level. If you have to park on a hill or slope..it sometimes causes it not to cut correctly. Tint happens occasionally but PPF seems much more prone to issue if not level.

Holy sh!t!  Look at this setup.  That's awesome.  Not sure how well that would work in really cold climates with the electronics, but any other time would be great.
