Man talk about a nice truck.. Would be an awesome hotshot truck. Was a 2002 F650 with 13,5k actual miles and a CAT engine. I honestly couldn't believe how maneuverable it was. I picked it up at a hot rod/exotic vehicle auction at the Cardinals football stadium in Phoenix,AZ. Had to zig it in and out of a bunch of hot rods and sports cars to get out of the place. The thing turned on a dime for such a big truck.. I was amazed..
Delivered.. (opps on the finger)
edit.. best part.. The broker said it was an F650 with a flatbed................When I saw the address as the football stadium and called the number finding out it was an exotic car auction I started to wonder what I had gotten myself into.. Was a bit fun figuring out how to load it, but got it done with no real issue just had to go slow being it was so #### long...and used 2x12's screwed to my deck & dove tail to give it a bit of extra height while loading/unloading. slipped on with about 1/4 inch of room between the ground effects and my trailer at the top of the dove tail.
Loaded this beauty on Tues..

There’s one I seen in Canada the same and they want $80K. I would have bought a Class 7 truck years ago to haul my 5th wheel but they’re absurdly overpriced. Even with truck prices as they are you could get a decentCclass 8 for $80K
I'm not aginst using a class 7 truck if it's the right deal but I'd never pay that absurd amount of money for one. Also TBH, I'd actually feel bad using that truck for hotshot being the condition it was in for its age it shouldn't be a work truck.. Personally, I thought my 2007 F550 was in good shape as far as the interior and so on.. but this one was like new out of a showroom on the inside.
If I could run a single axle class 7 with one of those single axle air brake low boy car trailers and have maybe $20k in the truck and maybe 15k in the trailer I'd say sure.. but beyond that, it might as well just be a semi if you are going that big and that expensive for used equipment with no warranty.Last edited: Mar 27, 2022
