    If it's gaureented pay it'll be a little harder to find a set date of 1500$ but honestly if you are driver that doesn't stay truck stop happy you can make that gross pretty regularly with a company that keeps you busy.

    I think its difficult to come across OTR companies that will pay 1500 gross. Average pay per mile is in the upper 40s or low 50s in terms of cpm. That means you need a company with miles to dish out at low 50 cpm or better. Make sure you look at how much consistent freight a company has. That tells the real story.

    I agree with you man. In my opinion, they are the best truck on the market in terms of comfort, driveability, durability, and work. The power they have is underrated. It will pull a 44k load effortlessly. I don't think they get their due because their name is Volvo and it don't have the look of a Pete or KW.

    What endorsements do you have and how long out? With haz I’m sure you could find a company fairly easily.

    I'm not sure if the average wage should be your concern. IMO pretty much every OTR outfit will have plenty of guys that gross over 1500 a week. The real question is are you one of those guys? It may take a few months but if you run your butt off, are never late, know how to squeeze every last minute out of your clock, and you stay on top of your dispatcher to keep you moving it should be pretty doable wherever you choose to go.

    1900 miles is $1000 net at Estes. I don't know about you, but running hard isn't really necessary. I can tell you 3500-4000+ mile weeks SOLO are definitely when you start grossing $2500+. I can prove 4000 miles solo is possible... $3000+ GROSS!
