Winnebago and the American Lung Association team up to fight cancer

We reported a while ago that Winnebago was planning on going all-electric with its commercial vehicle division. These rigs are used primarily by the health care industry as mobile medical units for collecting blood. On Monday though, Winnebago unveiled a new trick for the battery-electric RV — it’s hauling around the world’s first mobile full-body 32-slice CT scanner.

The CT scanner is built by Samsung and is part of an outfit for a Mobile Lung Unit that’s designed to bring medical care to high-risk, low-income areas that might not have access to the kind of specialized equipment necessary to scan effectively for lung cancer.
