This is why I love this forum.

Given it's usual dimensions, couldn't you store it tail-down vertically or bottom/grav modules up against the cargo/vehicle bay wall and fit it into 2 tons?
I'm fully of the opinion that the air/raft is enclosed, just like and for the same reasons as a modern ground car - for example, against bad weather.

Do as you like for YTU, as this is a game we play for fun.

The fiction from which the Air/Raft was drawn had them open-topped.

Also, it simplifies determining arcs of fire for PCs and NPCs employing small-arms from within the vehicle.

But yeah, they really ought to be enclosed and pressurized with basic life support for a few hours, or at least have a convertible top by default. Maybe a retractable hardtop?

Yes, made that change in '79. The days of the buckboard were long gone.

I went with the art in LBB3, but functionally, it's an anti-grav Deuce-and-a-Half (M35 Series 2 1/2-ton 6x6 cargo truck) [Wikipedia] with a pair of jump seats in the cargo bed to seat 4 including the driver. And Mr. Miller knew Deuce-and-a-halfs.

Layout is probably more like the modern cab-forward equivalents to those trucks.

Personally, I think more in terms of the VW Vanagon (it's so very 1980, and actually has a similar performance envelope aside from the whole "flying" bit -- build it with the huge sunroof and it's effectively open-topped) and its double-cab pickup version. Only slightly larger.

Close, certainly. The deuce-and-a-half would be a bit over 3 dT. A largest rental trucks, 13 ton gvw, would be more like a 4 dT vehicle.
