    OK so I have a nice International 9400 that I use 8 months a year to transport my Carnival Show. It sits in the Winter and I want to put it to work. I have my own authority and am fully insured. I also have a 45 foot dry van in really nice shape. I would like to go OTR and only drive around 1500 miles a week max. I do not mind sitting where I land for a few days before I go again. I would also consider power only, but would rather use my trailer. I know I need a niche market so...what advice do y'all have for me? Thanks, DD

    Find a company/broker that manages logistics for concerts/truck shows/etc. You may have to run power only, but otherwise it checks the boxes for you.

    Maybe hire on with some mail hauler outfit. I don't know of any other company that would load a 45 ft. trailer. Probably have to use their trailer.
    Google for some intermodal/drayage companies in Dallas; they use owner-operators to pull containers.
