    I'm an industrial design student and enjoy wheeling whenever I can. I just got an assignment to make a mobile workstation for any specific target population. I'm targeting those who enjoy off-roading from beginners to avid enthusiasts. The cool part is that I'm required to make a prototype and use it once I'm done. I'm just trying to get ideas for what kind of tools, accessories, and capabilities you all would look for in a mobile work-station to take out on the trails - desert, mountain, forest, mud, etc. I was thinking possibly a hitch insert or a truck box altered to make a working surface, clamps, and some other things. Any input will help. Thanks

    Workstation is a broad term.

    Depends on the kind of work you do.
