    I will be going in the middle of september to pick up exactly what you are looking for from southern apparatus. We ordered a four door freightliner chassi, with a 1250 gpm pump, and a 3000 gal. tank. wanted highside dry side. When we bid the truck out it was between them and deep south which does just a good of truck.

By “coincidence” the mfg that don’t tilt table are the same ones that have draftsmen “designing” trucks not REAL engineers doing REAL R&D. Stack the two factors and what do you get?
    Here's another idea. KEEP THE RIG IN THE ROAD. Most of 'em DO NOT roll until they hit the shoulder. No amount of Electronics will save your azz once that RF hooks the edge. Bend down and kiss it goodbye. T.C.

    youd have to specify the tilt test. just 'cuz a manufacturer has access to one doesnt mean they use it. Dont think they tilt every unit that rolls out the door, they DONT. Damn few get tilted. When on an inspection visit i witnessed a tilt test. The pumper was one of a multiple unit order that required tilt test. They tested one and said the others will be the same, so doing the one was enough.

    More and more are getting stability control systems anyway and the manufactures arent going to spend bucks tilting a unit the has esc.

    This thread has a few pumper-tankers with high sides in it, including ours on the page that's linked.

    My guess is that the unit proposed to the dept was poly wet side tank, or someones stock unit that had low sides both of which they would "add" a section of compartments on top of. I've seem pics of that kind of unit from some of the low cost tanker builders (didnt wanna say cheap).

    The explanation of "weight" issue seems odd to me.

    Here is a Toyne commercial pumper/tanker. It has a 2,500 gallon tank, but they build some with 3,000 gallon tanks on commercial chassis.

    I'm posting this one because I'm familar with it, not to push the brand. Any number of reputable builders can do integrated, "single" piece high sides on an apparatus with that much water.

    The custom cab and enclosed panel is irrelevant, but the high sides with the 3000 gallons doesn't appear to be impossible.

    This one is from 4 Guys but is on a custom chassis with a 2000 gallon tank but the body style may work for what you want.

    I have not seen this from the numerous builders we had talked to about our pumper / tanker specs. High sides on both sides and the body was one piece from top to bottom, no low sides with bolt ons.

    Looked exactly like the body on the above pictured Christiansburg pumper / tanker.
