    Saw an ad today looking for owner operator teams stating average earnings are $41.5k a month. That's crazy! It's running for forward air and says you only deal w their terminals and they even have laundry and showers on site. Does this sound too good to be true??? I'm about to buy my own truck and sign up LOL. $41.5K a month is a lot of dang money!

    If that's gross earnings to the truck. Easy to make that. $10g a week. Single driver can gross that

    Wow, that's bookoo. I'd imagine running for a company as an O/O would be easier since you don't have to hustle for loads?

    They said teams. Think how many miles do you think they are running to make that low rate 41.5k. :rolleyes::rolleyes:. A solo can push 3k & team has to push at least 5-6k a week. Here is the math if a team is doing 25-30k miles or more a month. That 41.5k is below dirt rate. :eek:o_O:(
