    Because we dont have the hosebed space for the lines to all come off the rear, crosslays are a necessity.

    I like the discharges on the panels (LA style), so I took it a step further. Adjustable dividers in the crosslay bed, to allow flexibility in the widths of the slots. Has anyone done this before?

    Basically, I envision 200' preconnects, with 100' of dead load hose under it and the preconnected portion attached to the panel discharge just under the slot. This allows the lines to be pulled and connected at any length up to 300' and without the hassles and pressure losses of swivels
    Yup,we have and it works well. Our STANDARD crosslay is 2X 200' 1.75 and 1 200' 2.5. T.C.

We are switching from a 75' firestix boom (not a fan of the design) to an aerial
    We tried the same. Since you made it work before, I assume you know what you're doing. We failed at this big time, and the rig we bought 7 years ago is an albatross and up for sale. Short story-major weight problems, and attempts to make it work as a Truck Co, despite the lack of space/ladder complement. I wrote about three paragraphs to explain, but deleted it when I figured discretion was the better part of valor.
