    Thought it might help.

    Occasionally there's a need for the 53'. Past few months they'll want it, but won't pay the supply and demand rate for it.

    I have a 53fl also……I believe there are 38 53flats at LS at the current moment….there aren't a lot of 53 only loads….some days you can get a really good rate for a 53fl. Ive had agents call and ask me to deadhead 3-400 miles to pick up a 53fl load…..
     
    blairandgretchen and kduvall Thank this.

    Oh no - you'll be fine with a 48. You'll like the extra 8% for your own trailer too, and being able to customize it as needed.
