    After looking at the cab there are alot of great design feature and many built off of existing chassis designs.

    First thing that struck me was the way the lights were set up, they look alot like the ALF

    I have my concerns over the modular panel, makes quick work of installing additional radios, sirens etc. I see the dash falling apart after several years.

    I look forward to seeing one in the future close up

    Ill get a couple pictures I took posted later on. Something goofy going on with my uploads from my camera. Headed to work shortly or id work on it more now.

    The concerns about the dash, as well as other suggestions, were brought up at the Q&A part of the pony show. Some they are aware of, some they wernt. As far as the dash goes, they said they used nut-serts molded into the panels to help aleviate any walering in the screw holes. Time will tell.

    Over all, I like the direction they are going. Are theyre changes that must be made, yes. That was one of the reasons for the event, input from end users and sales people.

    kinda looks like the new ford f150 grills. One piece windshield is neat, wonder how much of a difference it will make. I'd like to see how much space the officer and driver have. Kind of a shame most of the pictures I'm finding are of the outside looks, not about the parts that matter

    Might want to Rosie site and take another look. The chassis cab I saw was VERY well built. They are all going to have to get cooling air from SOMEWHERE.

    The engine is set back in the frame and there is a large shroud to better direct air flow.

    Heard today that Rosie sued Spartan in Federal Court and that they reached an agreement which allows Rosie to continue buying Spartan chassis until the end of the year.

    So when will we get to see better pictures of the interior (front and back) and of the features they are talking about? I'm interested in seeing alot more on the chassis.

    Top picture hopefully shows accessability for service. Next one shows urea tank location. last one shows location of HVAC vents. One other thing they liked to mention was many of the servicable parts are locally available through napa etc.

    I have absolutley no affiliation with them and Im certainly not in anyway selling, trying to sell anything. I was simply there and took some photos.

    I wonder why Rosenbauer America has no sales & service listed for the state of New Jersey, maybe they would sell more of there apparatus here with a local sales rep! Who would want to travel out of state for service?

    Rosenbauer must have changed sales & service dealers, for the state of New Jersey, this past January 2012. I think that they used a different company the past two years ? Many fire apparatus dealers change from year to year if sales are slow, or there is a problem between them and the factory!
