    I see LW Miller van, reefer, and tankers all over the area I'm driving in these days. I have 3 years of HazMat tanker experience and 20 years of dry van. I'm looking for a good tanker outfit.

    Do they keep tank & van separate or are you expected to pull whichever they assign you. I am comingbto hate van but really hate reefer.

    If anyone can recommend a good tanker outfit in the Northwest, especially ID, MT, WY, northern Utah I'd appreciate the tip.

    They keep them separate. From what I hear, they pay the fuel haulers really well. I haul fuel for a different company out of Salt Lake City. LW Miller looks like they have good trucks, but I'm not sure how long they keep you out on the road.

    Where do you live? Just about any “population center” will have jobs hauling fuel local. I know Missoula has a couple companies that run regional down to SLC and stuff with weekends off. Any company in the NW will have you regional hauling weight or if they have 80k stuff it will probably keep you from home a while.

    I'm trying out a dry van/reefer outfit in SW Idaho. I run a lot between SLC & Seattle/Portland. I'm living in the truck as I decide where to live. I am coming to hate everything about the reefer loads. Tired of dry van and loved tankers. I want to be in the inland northwest and want to pull tankers again. I think my dream job would be very rural locations to industrial customers rather than dropping fuel at retail locations.

    The little I've seen of LW Miller seems top-notch. I spend plenty of time in/around Logan UT home of LWM I think, which seems very nice for my tastes. I've changed companies more this year than in the last 15 years so I want to stay put until I find my "forever company" for the next 10-15 years. I plan to retire somwhere between SLC - Canadian border, Idaho to Dakotas. I really like far north ID & far west Montana.

    @tscottme ................... Take a look at these guys...They've been around a long time, have a well established customer base, and if you want the inland PNW they have terminals in Spokane and Pasco.
