    Its your and you take it with you. While it may be rumor, I heard your interest rate shoots up if you leave....

    But... if you have good credit, you should shop for a good rate. Landstar is up around 9 something percent. You could get about 6 if you check around.

    I'm just not an advocate of having your own trailer. You cut yourself out of all the pre loaded freight, and that is substantial.

    There is certain advantages to both ways , and I don't know what the new contract pays for your own trailer but my trailer made me an extra 575$ last week .
    I've never regretted having it but to each his own

    Definitely shop around for interest rates on any loan regarding a trailer. If a person doesnt have their own trailer before arriving at LS I tend to suggest they wait to see how the drop and hooks work for them. Personally there is little to no drop and hook in our out of my home in Omaha and I prefer to do more logistic minded loads so having my own trailer allows me the ability to carry equipment to serve those loads. The trailer generated revenue has more than made up for the freedom of the drop and hooks I gave up.
