NYC has had Gruman, Wheeled Coach, Horton and another one or so throughout the years. I suppose Wheeled Coach was the 'lowballer' this time around.

Are there any big differences between the manufacturers? Do some have a better quality, longer warranty etc.

Amazing that this group is part of REV and awarded contract yet the KME part lost its contract for not fulfilling orders.
