The County has a Mobile Display Unit (MDU) which can be borrowed by Scout Groups and Districts within the County of West Yorkshire to publicise Scouting at local events.
There is no charge to groups in West Yorkshire for using the MDU, however borrowers must be insured for both transporting the vehicle to the event and for damages occurred as a result of using the MDU.
Whilst on a public road the MDU must be insured under the borrowers insurance policy. In addition the towing vehicle must be capable of towing 1500kgs but not exceed (together MDU and passengers) 3500kgs. When in the borrowers possession and parked up the MDU must be secured at all times with the 2 wheel locks and lockable hitch over the towing hitch to comply with the insurance policy.
If the MDU is kept over night it needs to be in locked secured storage.
The MDU comes equipped with the following standard and optional equipment. Optional equipment must be ordered at the time of booking.
