My work is currently in the process of buying a new survey vehicle, and I am curious to see how other people have set their vehicle out for surveying purposes. I have attached a photo beneath of what I currently have, compared to what they are looking at. Personally, I think the new vehicle would be a disaster to work out of and I prefer a simple open back ute (truck, or whatever you call them in your country) with a hidden floor for tripods and some small tool storage in the back.
I'd love to see photos of other surveyors vehicles.

The covered tray in the back seems to be a pain in the neck to work from.

I'd love to hear any feedback.

David Bosshard RLS may be the perfect guy to talk to about this.  You'll find many photos of his work truck setup in photos.  I imagine he has put a LOT of time into the methodical truck layout he uses today.

You'll also find many work truck photos at the bottom of this page for survey photo categories

Beauty! Thanks a lot, Justin.

My Pleasure Paul..the process of finding this sort of information on the network will get MUCH better in November when I migrate all of our content to the new and improved Land Surveyors United Network..

Looking forward to it! Be sure to let me know if you want another set of eyes in the testing process.

Cool rig, I am afraid you are much more organized than I am.
