Military semi-trailer vans were produced in a large variety of models to suit the needs of the user organizations within the US military. Vans served as command posts, workshops, electronic equipment centers, cargo logistics vehicles, parts storage lockers, and many other uses. In some cases, there is very little difference between models. However, the small difference was important for some function and a new model was created to distinguish it.

In the 1990s and later, many functions of semitrailer vans have been replaced by standard containers or shelters.
