The reason why those trucks are better than vans, is payload

One can always spot a poly truck, no pipe rack. Nice rig!

Might have a trailer set up for trencher with a pipe rack! I know I dont like a truck with a pipe rack.. ;)

I love the organization, those boxes dont slide around?

I am trying to locate a used one. what I want to do with it is make a basket from expanded sheet metal over the cab for rolls of poly and drip.

Ah, back to my favorite argument, poly vs. pvc. After 10 years, i still cannot come up with a valid reason why poly is not the industry standard on resi's. From an install and service basis it's a no brainer.

that's said enjoy you're flo-spans, compression fittings, and knock-ons. i'll stick with my crimp clamps.

That's the difference. Poly people have to waste precious metallic resources to assemble their work. :)

I'm here, you're not, I don't have to work, you do. Who's the piker?

it's still a no brainer.

which brings me to my next thought. what are the environmental ramifications of introducing all that glue/primer to the soil. On a per house base, probably not that much, but overall, it's something to ponder. (score another for poly).

Nice setup. I liked how the long horizontal cabinet goes all the way to the end of the bed. The back cabinet on mine is taller but I would rather have the setup you have. Who makes that body?

The body is made by Reading. The other side doesn't have the long box. I wish it had the flip up top for small parts storage but I bought it used so I guess if I ever buy brand new I could order it that way.

Thats cool, the flip top would be neat. I have found that there simply isnt enough room on ours. It is good for service, but can't keep anything organized for installs. I would like to get an 11' body with baskets on top of the bed for fittings. I really need to look into this poly deal. There are only 1 or 2 guys using it here and they have migrated from your area.

You can buy a separate box from different brands of builders that bolts to the bed that has that flip up top like you are talkin about..
