Using a sedan?


#1

Has anyone used a sedan before? Can you fit your ladders and WFP gear in it (or on it)?


#2
  • What kind of sedan
  • What kind of ladder
  • What kind of wfp gear

It is possible just depends on what you have going on.


#4

I have sectional ladders and a Xero water fed pole and DI tank.


#5

If you have all the gear and have the car, no one can better answer this question other than you, try see if it fits


#6

exactly…just measure it all up and see if it fits…:no_mouth:


#7

In a pinch, we’ve loaded a little giant, di tank and wfp into our Accord, plus bucket and tools.


#8

For the first couple years in business, I loaded a 22’ multi position ladder, 12’ 16’ 30’ extension poles into my Hyundai Sonata. I could’ve fit a xero pure too if I had had one.


#9

I used a loud rusted out late nineties Chevy Cavalier for a year in the beginning. I could fit (very snug) a 22 foot combination ladder, IPC Hydrotube, and wfp in it.


#10

To funny I had a red one in the late 80`s…


#11

My first few vehicles were sedans (‘03 Dodge Neon, ‘97 Honda Accord, ‘84 Toyota Camry, in that order)

I had roof racks and could carry a 28’ extension fairly comfortably on all of them. I didn’t move up to a wfp system until I got a wagon (2005 Scion xB). But it’s definitely doable, if you’re willing to think outside the box. I removed the rear seats of the xB and had a 25 gallon tank setup.

My new xB has a 40 gallon tank and I was able to keep the rear seats (though I might pull them out now that we’re finally a 2 vehicle household)

Alex can you tell me more about this tank. Does this mean you can carry your own water with you. Thanks


#13

I’ve used my wife’s corrola and it all fit fine , if you get a wagon/hatchback would be perfect . I’m actually considering a prius

Here’s pretty much everything I’ve written on the topic:
