    Cut a hole in floor. Fit roller in that hole. Then just fit a roller on a bracket under the van. Just get the angles right, its easy.

    The 4 way rollers are fine depending on what reel you have. If you have a rubbish cheap reel it will struggle. If you have electric reels the tension will cause issues as well. You will basically just need an L shaped bracket welding under the van and then that roller just welding or bolting onto that.

    I would take it to a local welder, tell em what you want. Then let them do it.

    Not really no, but what you have to remember is. The hose goes through the floor, then into another roller. It all creates resistance. My advice was and is to fit the one you posted a picture of. It will make the setup better. To answer your post on CIU No i haven't had it done, as i am making a radical roller floor system.
