    I only personally know eli. He seems to be a good guy and his drivers talk like they are happy.
    Also you can ask recruiting for the names and numbers of guys that got trucks sitting empty.

    Are their flats split tandem? Do they have inflation systems?

    Fixed spread axles with rear suspension dump factory installed. No tire auto inflation systems, which is a good thing. Those are maintenance nightmares.

    So the tandems don't move at all? Does that make it difficult to scale out? Keep in mind I have no flatbed experience, so go easy on me lol
     
    Airborne Thanks this.

    They are not tandems. They are spread axles. One axle at the very back, one 10 feet ahead of it. (Really 10 ft 1 inch but everyone refers to them as 10 ft spreads) In the lower 48 states and Ontario and quebec provinces you are allowed 40k on a 10 ft spread. Once you figure out how to load your trailer it's practically impossible to overload the axles on either the truck or trailer.

    Do the lease purchase trailers have the long studs for aluminum wheels if you wanted to put some on?
