    So I dumped the co I was hauling for . Not bad but they kept trying to get me stuck out of town for weekend instead of routing me home . I don't like being played.
    I paid 1,100 month for trailer. Why not just buy my own.
    Dropped off theirs , headed home to get a trailer. Found out there are none. I found one nice one for sale but of course no way to get loan.
    No rentals till after harvest.
    Now trying to find some power unit only loads to haul.
    Could make 7 - 11k a week with a van for the guy I use authority , but no vans at all and they are real expensive for some reason. I guess the factories caught the covid.

    It’s a hot season.
    You can find one, you’ll overpay though.

    Last week i heard if you order a New dry van today, the build date is 2023. I can’t imagine any other trailer design is a whole lot ahead of that at this point.

    But you solved your problem tho: now you’re home on the weekends! Lol

    i seen some hoppers around on marketplace for facebook ever now n again; i am not in ag country tho. Might be more in areas that kind of equipment is popular.

    Everything is backed up. Fellow I work with wanted to order a new powerboat and he wouldn't see it until the end of 2022!

    What kind of trailer you need?
    I know a place with hoppers or another one for tankers for sale, new or used.

    Looking to rent a hopper. These days they seem to be too picky about loans. Just bought a truck and new business so they are scared to loan without collateral.
    I could do tanker but I don't care much for delivering in tight city streets. Kind of like the country stuff .

    You can hook up with PT Brokers out of MS, they’ll let you lease one and haul their freight.

    I bought a new hopper with new DOT numbers, a Wilson trailer, $39000 didn’t have to put any down, but I put 5000 just to lower interest and payment.

    The trailer isn’t enough collateral? I bought a hopper last June for $37k and sold it 6 weeks ago for $41.5k.

    Where are you located? Diamond T in Beatrice NE usually has some rentals but I have no idea what they get for them.

    Tried to rent one today. Guy said had two come on in. I did xnd when I walked in he looked at me and said we don't have any trailers for rent. Obviously don't like long hair. TD;Ked to him for a while. Mentioned gardening and he asked me if I grew pot.
