    I got the 510/1850 Paccar again. On a 579 the 510 with Platinum interior was in the ballpark of a 450-ish Cummins and Prestige interior that they were ordering for lot trucks at the time.

    NOBODY can get the Tractors, Trailers, That have been on order for a Year or TWO! I am talking about Companies that have STANDING ORDERS for hundreds or THOUSANDS of trucks/trailers annually! Regardless of the Manufacturer...... They are ALL backed up.... Who gets the priority on availability and pricing? Prime? Swift? Werner? Walmart? Knight? or.......... Single Truck O/O. We all know the answer.

    If you don’t by throw away trucks you have a better chance over the Megas.

    Give an example of a 2022 "Throw Away" truck, vs. a 2022 "Don't Throw Away Truck". Please include pricing and the difference between the components as well.

    A 389 flat top with a 280 or 290 wheelbase biggest engine 18 speed throw in a painted frame and full lockers. You won’t find much competition from a mega. Dealers that specialize in such rigs ordered them and they are still slowly coming in. I got mine for 175K Peterbilt Sioux Falls. You won’t have many fleets to compete with other than owner ops. Also try a visit vs a sale over phone. That’s how I got a 22 Great Dane 78k with a carrier. I visited dealer explained my situation and had them want to help a guy starting out. What you know a fleet let two trailers go from a big order and I got one! It’s all in people skills and looking into a different network. I had no luck with Jx network or rush of Dallas. Dallas wouldn’t even give me the time of day. I had better luck with folks in Green Bay and Sioux Falls. I even had a lead on utility trailers shipped from Mexico and sent to Wisconsin rapids. They got 5 trailers from utility. Are they going to offer them to a random caller or someone that visits, gets work done in service, drinks coffee with them and asks about their weekend.I even wrote out a letter to Paccar about my family heritage in trucking, combat history and future intentions. I wore a colored shirt and had a portfolio in hand. I meant business and the dealer felt good about giving a guy a chance. I didn’t show up with flip flops or a bad attitude.

    Throw away truck is one that probably will never make it to a truck show or sit in a museum. You can find a throw away truck operated by the scum of trucking, the ATA.
