    Thinking about leasing on with Ergon, just trying to do some research. I plan on buying an older truck with cash to keep my payments down It will be a nice truck, not some ragged out pos. I plan on spending about 50k. Was wondering if Ergon Trucking has any requirements regarding the age or anything like that for their owner ops. I've looked on their website and couldnt find any info. I live in Ohio so if anyone has any information on the company itself that would be great too. Thanks

    I talked to them in Houston nothing older then a 2008 and risers on the 5th wheel. They inspect the trucks before you do the application is what I was told.

    They do allow gliders and many tanker companies will not let you run elog due to liabilities that come with it

    Well that's good about the gliders. it just makes it harder to get a truck cause now I'll most likely need to finance. And will not let you run elogs? or did you mean paper logs?
