A. What you need to complete your mobile office will depend on how often you plan to use it, and what you plan to do while working there. If you plan on using computers, you will need an auxiliary battery and power inverter. Cargo vans may require additional HVAC if you will be working for long periods of time in less moderate climates. Check out our Mobile Office Checklist for a more comprehensive list of suggestions.
A. The size and type of power you will need varies greatly based on how you will be using your mobile office. Since everyone’s electrical requirements are different, we recommend that you talk with a mobile power specialist to determine the type of auxiliary power needed.

Assembly and Installation

The CarGo mobile office does not require professional installation since no drilling or altering of the vehicle is needed. The mobile office is secured with the seat belt and front passenger seat. Detailed instructions are provided with your mobile office.
Professional installation is recommended for the VanGo mobile offices as drilling into the floor is required. Our team is available to provide recommendations for professional installers, also known as upfitters, in your area if needed.
Drilling into the vehicle floor is optional for the CrewGo mobile office. If you plan to drill into the floor, professional installation is recommended. If you use the seat belt and front passenger seat only to secure the mobile office, no professional installation is needed. Detailed instructions are provided with the mobile office.
