Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Does it have air-conditioned (7/14/19 8:25 PM)
A: No, it does not have air conditioning. (7/15/19 8:10 AM)
Q: Can a hitch to pull trailers be added? Thank you. (7/21/19 11:27 AM)
A: I was told by one of the firemen that also runs an RV business and he advised you might be able to attach a hitch but because it is a step down bumper, that may need to be removed first. (7/22/19 9:11 AM)
Q: Why is this being relisted? Was there an issue with the truck that made the buyer back out? Also, would it be possible to see pictures of the engine bay, and underneath the vehicle? (8/1/19 7:52 AM)
A: The winning bidder was a father that stated that he owns a business with his son and had his son bidding on a fire truck for their business. The son was bidding on this Kalida Fire truck an at the same time the father thought the son was bidding on a different truck that the father wanted. When the son won the auction, the father got the email stating he was the winner and when he opened it, he saw that his son was bidding on the wrong truck. The father asked me if he could back out and after consulting govdeals, it was concluded that he would be allowed to back out of the deal and the truck was offered to the next highest bidder. That second place bidder did not respond to the offer of taking the truck. Therefore, the truck is being relisted. I will post a picture of the engine compartment now and as far as a picture of the underside, that will be on one of the fireman to accomplish that task and if they do, I will post that picture also. (8/1/19 10:00 AM)
Q: Do you have any concerns about driving this truck long distances? If I bought it, I would have to drive it about 10 hours home. Also, is it stable at freeway speeds? (8/1/19 11:50 AM)
A: The truck obviously has been driven in emergency response to fire calls in regards top speed but you must take into consideration that is it a 1983 box truck. The fire department here is a small department and responds to calls almost exclusively within the county we reside in. We are in a rural area and do not have an interstate close for the fire department to say if it is stable or not at "freeway speed". (8/1/19 12:41 PM)
Q: What is the length from bumper to bumper.... is there a information plate/tag with the GVW... thank you (8/3/19 8:18 AM)
A: The van length is approximately 24 feet. I am waiting on a fireman to do some checking on the weight of the vehicle. I checked to see if there is an info plate but I could not find one other then the VIN Plate. If one of the fireman finds the plate or finds out the weight of the truck, I will edit this answer and post it here. So, no info plate was found so the truck was weighed on a scale at our local Feed Mill and it weighed 7810 pounds. (8/5/19 8:52 AM)
