    With the rgn I had more deadheading but, I use the build loads to the next pickup, or, if underweight I would strap extra small #### on. I did a giant snowblower on the main deck, and got an extra $2000 because I added a hovercraft on the neck

    If you are honestly doing as well as you say you probably want to just stay the course. There is too much volatility in the market right now.

    You didn’t have an RGN. You had a detach double drop.

    What’s this picture for? I know this wasn’t your trailer and I know they don’t load hovercrafts and cars on the neck to get out of key west.

    No. It was new york to some little town off I80 in California before it comes off the mountain Screenshot_20221126_072821_Photos.jpg

    The photo wasn't an rgn it was a twin hydraulic lift trailer I use to drive. And yes, I drove the trailer, not truck, on these 5 loads from pembina to Pittsburgh.

    Tarps??
    You need none of that
    I have a 53’ flatbed Conestoga that is getting an all new tarp kit installed that’ll be for sale so just buy that

    Back when, there were two reasons and only two reasons to ask a question. One reason was because the answer would benefit the person asking the question in some shape, form or fashion. The second reason was because of being downright nosy and the answer wasn't important other than to add to gossip fodder. Several years ago the third reason popped up. That's where a question is asked just to find out how many agree with the person asking the question. Beats everything I ever saw.

    There are several people on here who do that. They're not really asking a question, they just want validation of some idea...usually goofy and totally unworkable...that popped into their head.
    They're the ones who take someone disagreeing with them as a personal attack.
    The answers they get don't agree with what they want to do so they go off-line and sulk for a while but they always come back.
