The photos on this page show a Volkswagen Crafter L3H3 with a Syncro System racking solution for a firm that provides roadside assistance for heavy goods vehicles. This racking system forms a truly effective mobile workshop, complete with a work area for repairs, a storage area for spare parts, and a good selection of useful accessories.

Syncro System can supply and fit pre-shaped, pre-drilled and fully customised liners for any van. Syncro liners protect your vehicle against wear and damage, make cleaning so much easier, and provide solid anchorage for racking and accessories.
This VW Crafter used to assist HGVs is fitted with a plywood floor liner with a marble-look surface and stainless-steel edge protectors at the doors. The van’s doors and walls are lined with painted steel panels. The bulkhead liners are custom-made for this model and are divided into specially shaped sections of resin-coated plywood – the same material used to cover the floor. All Syncro liners come ready shaped to match the surface they are designed to protect and are produced on high-tech cutting machines at the Syncro System factory in Cassola, Vicenza.

The racking on the right of the Crafter is designed to store all the tools, equipment, spares and sundries needed to provide roadside assistance for heavy goods vehicles. The floor-level compartment is enclosed by a lift-up door. Over it are eight metal drawers, two shelves and four cabinets of transparent containers. The bottom containers are longer and of a pull-out design while the top ones are shorter, better suited to the restricted space under the van’s roof, and open with a tilting action. A fold-away vice bench, complete with metal vice, is mounted on the racking side panel at the rear doors.
The van’s bulkhead is equipped with three slider bars arranged in parallel at different heights. The top two are equipped with movable and adjustable hooks while that near the floor is fitted with lashing straps with sliding fittings. These are the ideal solution for securing fuel and oil cans in the leak-proof stainless-steel tray mounted on the floor. An externally powered oilless compressor delivering 240 l/min is fixed to the floor by brackets in the space between the left racking and the bulkhead.
A well-equipped mobile workshop like this could not do without certain accessories to boost the professionalism of those who work in it. The van is fitted with:
