    we never drove a manual until school and it wasnt difficult at all to learn. just how much stress it takes for our mind to bypass the concept ;) . from what we read in here, being an O/O would give you more freedom but not really more money for team drivers but it might fit you guys perfectly

    He wants an older, mechanical engine with no DEF....which is why he wants to buy our own rig.

    wish you guys all the best. i think many companies require trucks to be within a certain age, just look out for that too

    Being out on the road definately takes time to get used to the lifestyle change. So you’ll wanna put some time in as company drivers just to be sure you enjoy the job and can tolerate all the not so fun parts that come with it. :)

    Celadon doesn't seem to hire from our area.... Still just not comfortable with the thought of being separated from the hubby for a long time.

    Yeah, very unpleasant to say the least. Where do you think the 2 trainees sleep?

    Well, as a married couple, I'd imagine we'd sleep together, or in the same bunk. Legally, there is no difference between the top and bottom bunk as long as there is a legal net. The problem is with insurance companies not allowing 3 ppl in a cab, or company policies. I'd like to learn as a team how to drive like a team.

    you are incorrect mam. NO person allowed in top bunk while truck is in motion. Bottom only with net. Covenant preaches a great game but are far from it. High turnover rate. Think about it.

    Do you work for them? Have you worked for them? Just asking.
    I can see no regulation in the book about when you can ride in the top bunk. The only regulation says that a bunk must have a net if someone will be in it when the vehicle is in motion.

    The purpose of a net on the top bunk is to keep the person from flying out of bed while the truck is MOVING.
