    I booked a load but ive been really thinking about it...its a shipper from Florida that had a nursery load of potted trees on the trailer floor. Im wondering if its gonna leave a huge mess like dirt, leaves, bugs and so on. Of course broker sayd its not that bad and runs them all the time. Ive been doubting my self since i pulled the trigger and i only booked cause it was the best paying load heading back home. My trailer is a wabash duraplate 2010 food grade, not new but taken care of whats yalls experience with this, what have yall heard. I personally never ran a load like this. Thanks

    You will have to get a washout after unloading, it's not bad, just mud

    It gives the trailer a nice fresh smell and cleans easy with a washout.. unloading may take awhile with social distancing happening..

    No, washing off every once in a while won't ruin your dry van

    It gets wet on the bottom all the time won’t hurt it to get wet once a while on the top just leave the doors open let it dry out!
