    I believe that real estate is always a better investment than a vehicle. Most real estate, if maintained, will increase in value over time, but most vehicle, even if maintained, will decrease in value over time. IMHO, tks

    get the house! if you think you are in a company truck full time now... a rig of your own will be an adjustment!

    I really honestly thought my car haulers would tell me to get a rig, I do enjoy hauling cars except auction freight and heavy sh** but honestly. I really thought ya would say rig, stay in the truck and put a bigger down payment on the house. But you all are wise and I will definitely take ya input into consideration thank you it means a lot to a young trucker
