Description: The S-130 Shelter speeder was an airspeeder designed for medical treatment and protection in hazardous environments.
The S-130 was a large vehicle that was equipped with state-of-the-art medical sensors and equipment. It was designed to treat patients who had been exposed to toxins or diseases, and help investigate locations where the causes of infections were unknown. While inside, people were protected from radiation, poisons, and inhaled diseases.
I like it! Nice utilitarian vehicle for transportation through hostile environments, as well as treatment and general shelter. It's kinda like a mobile shelter bunker.

Absolutely, I really like the idea of a vehicle as a mobile base, the only other vehicle I can think of which is kind of like that is the Chariot Speeder, which is a mobile command center, but has never really been fleshed out anywhere I'm aware of.

Would you say the AT-AT and the Clone War era Imperial Juggernaut would count? They're not repulsorlift, but they might fit the bill.

I see those as only really having cargo/passenger capacity, I'd love to see an extended range version of the AT-AT, with a galley and sleep area inside, maybe even a sick bay for treating wounded troops. Because as far as I'm aware, troopers aboard an AT-AT would need to disembark to poop, so I can't see them being used as anything more than an armed bus. I suppose they might carry supplies for setting up camp overnight.
