* Almost every entry in the ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' series features at least one main base where the assassins Brotherhood keeps their arsenal, armors, coordinates their members and trains their recruits-- in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedSyndicate'', rather than use a building, the Frye twins take over an enemy gang's private *train* as their base of operations. "Bertha" serves as a hideout, living quarters, even letting the player upgrade their gang and collect tax money from within. It also runs around London of course.

* From ''[[ANewHope Star Wars IV: A New Hope]]'', the sandcrawlers that the Jawas tooled around in were bases on tracks. To a lesser extent, the Imperial AT-[=ATs=]. They were basically large troop-carrying assault guns, but various depictions showed them being capable of carrying speeders similar to the ones seen in ''Return of the Jedi''.

Added DiffLines:

* Jack's Kirby's [[Comicbook/NewGods Fourth World]] series -- in particular, his early run on ''ComicBook/JimmyOlsen'' -- featured the "Mountain of Judgement", a mobile home for the Hairies, a bunch of genetically modified young humans (and since it was the early 70s, they all had long hair, hence the name). The Mountain was supposedly converted from an old NASA missile crawler (that used to be used for Saturn Vs?) and had been seriously suped-up by the super-intelligent Hairies and a good dose of Kirby Tech. It spent its time roaring around (at extremely high speeds -- none of this 1 mph nonsense) the Zoomway, a private... well, miles-long racetrack is the only equivalent that comes to mind, giving off SFX of all sorts to discourage any curiosity on the part of the local commune of bikers in the Wild Area. The Mountain's outer shell made it look like some kind of giant monster on wheels, which helped add to the mystery surrounding it.

* ''MarvelUltimateAlliance'' featured the Omega Base, a giant military research station on tracks operated by S.H.I.E.L.D. The only plot reason it was on tracks was to have the villains hijack it and send it towards an hydroelectric dam.

* ''Anime/SpeedRacer: The Movie'' had Cruncher Block hanging out in the well-furnished (complete with piranha tank) back of a big red truck. This is possibly a ShoutOut to the Mammoth Car from the original cartoon, which blurred the line between CoolCar and ''CoolTrain''.

* ''{{Transformers}}'': any and all "[[http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Cityformer cityformers]]" are colossi who turn into Transformer-scaled cities or fortresses, though scale in Transformers has traditionally been [[YourSizeMayVary utterly screwed]]. Their ranks include Metroplex, Trypticon, Fortress Maximus, Scorponok, Overlord...
** Metroplex, the Transformer who doubles as ''a massive mobile city''.
** Also, Trypticon, who is less a Base On Wheels and more a Base On Legs, as he transforms from a city into a giant robot dinosaur. [[note]]There are actually several city-robots in the original ''Transformers'' continuity, although no more have shown up since.[[/note]]

** Megatron's constant energy-stealing in ''Anime/TransformersRobotsInDisguise'' wasn't so he could power his doomsday base so he could destroy the Autobots, but simply so he could keep it moving around so the Autobots wouldn't find it. One wonders why he bothered with it in the first place.

* On both the film and movie versions of Creator/MichaelCrichton's ''Literature/TheLostWorld1995'', the expedition team to Isla Sorna utilizes a modified Fleetwood RV (called the "[[Literature/TheLostWorld Challenger]] Trailers" on the novel) as a mobile expedition lab and base, with such things as integral motion detectors, tear gas launchers, a wireless connections to the computer systems that are still active on the ruined [=InGen=] labs on the island and a highly reinforced frame that can withstand a wide variety of punishment (up to and including dinosaur attacks). The Trailers and their integral devices see some more use on the novel, [[spoiler:including the rear trailer (which was the main supply carrier) surviving the T-Rex attack that wrecks the whole vehicle on the film and being used by the characters as a temporary shelter]].
