RCA introduced its first postwar mobile production van in 1948, the TJ-48. One was purchased by KDYL in Salt Lake City and later bought by WGSF in Newark, Ohio. Another was at WXYZ in Detroit, and is now being restored by Chuck Pharis. A third one is in a museum near Havana, Cuba. Here is a blog by Eduardo Suarez which includes information on this van.
