    I will let you know soon on this week.
    It's probably one of three. Max Fire Apparatus, Franco Fire Equipment, or Towers Fire Apparatus. We're in Max's, but I don't know how far they go your direction.

    I'll share with you my experience off of here.

    I thought it was Franco - but when I used the corporate web site dealer finder it gave me a corporate sales contact.

    I even asked a company in Springfield if they were interested - you can guess who. No reply.

    Thats fine of course, lots of other interest, but I was interested in seeing a Ferrara product. Guess that will not happen.

    I was surprised that they became a Ferrara dealer. Only thing I can say is call them again.

    Depending on what you're looking at, there's several tanker builders out there. If you're wanting one with a traditional-style body, then you may still be looking at the traditional builders.

    One thing a rep from one of the "big boys" in apparatus told me when we were speccing our quick-attack was that the "big boys" are good at the aerials and pumpers, but they're usually going to be higher and put less energy into the tankers and quick-attacks. The reason he told me is because they do so many of the others, it requires them to change their lines up a bit to do anything else. Made sense to me.

    When we did our pumper-tanker, it was actually a fluke that we got the full pumper-style body. We were originally looking at a wetside tanker and happened to find a couple of manufacturers that could pull of the pumper body.

    Some of the ones we looked at were Midwest (while I was playing around on their site a bit ago, I noticed a map that shows tankers they have out there. Ava and Theodosia both have one), SEMO, Southern, and a couple I don't remember. I know there's several good manufacturers out there that will build a quality tanker and probably do it for less than some of the bigger names.

    If you make it over here, I still have several of the specs and bids filed away. They're from '05, but they should give you some kind of idea where you might be. We did stay under $200K at the time, but I don't know what emissions and all that would have done to the cost by now.

    Didn't McNeill get a tanker recently?

    They are now a Rosenbauer dealer. For whatever reason, they dropped Crimson.

    LOL, I've had the same problem before. Actually, I think I lost yours when my computer crashed a couple of months ago. I got the idea that I'd download all my contacts back into Outlook via my phone. What happened was that my phone downloaded my Outlook contacts, which was empty.
