    They get their trucks cheaper than that.
    I was just at a Freightshaker dealer and they told me I could get a basic shaker for $117k and that's my quote as a random single truck buyer.
    You could also get a fairy nice new Western Star for under $130k

    A mechanic at a OC told me they pay 82000 a unit for plain Jain company specd Cascadias. Probably irresponsible to repeat him because he could have been talking out of his ###. Idk

    I'm pretty sure it's closer to 120K that they pay for a basic truck with APU but didn't want to go too low. I'm still look at all options

    Well it is a lease/finance company so they need to make their money.

    Sure it might be $117k if you buy it outright but how much will it run if you finance a portion of that sticker?

    Granted, you will probably still spend a little less financing it directly from the dealer but you'll still end up paying more than $117 unless you pay full cash up front.

    He's gonna educate us!

    Kind of like telling us how horrible Traveloko is, then 2 weeks later, he is leased to Traveloko and recruiting everyone to go there.
