        Things I liked were:
        1.) Newly revised compartmentation on the Sutphen SPH 100... it now has all kinds of room in its compartments.
        2.) The Sutphen Scene View pumper which is a top mount/side mount pump operation. Seems good for smaller, voluteer fire departments.
        3.) Sensible Products had a great new way to mount equipment in compartments by using a module design. I think they called it T mounts.
        4.) FRC had some neat new lighting options. Lots of LED choices from them now.
        5.) Headlights - I see that many manufacturers went away from the old sealed beam lights and now have a more automotive looking, clear glass headlight. This had a seperate bulb that you can swap out just like a car.
        6.) I believe it was Rosenbauer, but they had an interesting step/ladder set up that came out of the side of the truck. The only use I saw for it was re-packing hose.
        7.) Manufacturer unknown, but I saw a neat tool storage shelf that swung out of the compartment. Different than a pull out tray, but kind of like a lazy susan. I have no idea what weight it held, but nice concept.
        8.) ROM has some neat pull out trays that seem to work much easier than the Slidemaster units.
        9.) I had no idea how bad the door seal was on Spartan cabs. I have always heard of water leak issues on their doors, and now I saw why.
        10.) Pierce CF - I did not care for the new interior. Seemed like they fixed the space issue in the front by creating a space issue in the back for the crew. This may work for some departments though.

          Intersting one caption noted four FDNY apparatus including a 4 door Ford Chassis ambulance? I thought the four doors buses were going to be Dodges?

                They've come out with new surface mount (1.25" deep) scene lights at 15k lumens, and a 2.5" front brow light using a universal mount that has 20k lumens (far more than the Whelen Pioneer Plus).

                Here are the 15k lumen models mounted to a Will-Burt light tower.

                8.) ROM has some neat pull out trays that seem to work much easier than the Slidemaster units.
                Both ROM and On Scene Solutions pull out trays blow SlideMaster out of the water. I'd happily use either one.

                9.) I had no idea how bad the door seal was on Spartan cabs. I have always heard of water leak issues on their doors, and now I saw why.
                Never heard a complaint about Spartan door seals??

                10.) Pierce CF - I did not care for the new interior. Seemed like they fixed the space issue in the front by creating a space issue in the back for the crew. This may work for some departments though.
                I predict you'll see a lot of departments that feel like the minor space issue in the rear is far offset by the space gained in the front.

                  The department by me has a new Smeal with a Spartan cab that has water leak issues around the doors. I never looked at it until the show and saw what they use for sealing around the doors. I would rather that the cab door had a more positive sealing surface.

                      Must not have signed the Do Not Resuscitate form.

                      Apparently Lynn still needs the write-offs.

                          Never seen or heard of any issues with the door seals leaking water. Not just on my 13, but others around me that have them.

                          And what "exactly" did you see that they used to seal the doors that you didn't like???

                            They didn't say Stuphen anywhere on them.
