    looking to buy a 2nd truck with maybe around less then 200k miles and willing to spend up to 90k, would love to find a 2019 freightliner with less then 200k miles but everything seems to be around 120k with 200k miles?

    where would you guys look for trucks with low miles? for that budget
    any place you guys know or a company that sell out trucks at 200k miles?

    any help would be great! Thanks in advance.

    I'd check Craigslist and do a nation wide search. Wade through all of the ads posted by dealers and look for units sold by O/O's. You might find a sleeper hiding in there.

    Lose 50K in depreciation right off the bat. It's a write off.

    why not keep the money in the bank or in a mattress? why a big purchase in this economy.

    I would wait a few months and see what the next regime is going to do before adding another truck. Last thing I would want to do is lay out all that money and have rates tank because of lock downs.

    Unless a truck is a dud or company went under . I can’t see anyone selling a unit with that low mileage if they didn’t spec it wrong for the job .
