    Billboard on the WB ITR around mm110:

    "Pickup trucks needed
    Year round work
    WAVE Express"

    I have no other info, I know nothing about the company, nor do I care. Just posting it FWIW, for anyone to research on their own.

    Bennett Motor Express is also recruiting pickup truck owner-operators all over the country.
    I think the ads I've seen want 1 ton pickup trucks.

    Yes just passed the billboard and the office shortly after the sign. Moving RV’s across the country. Really slow going that way, like traveling thru any big city. Stop and go, stop and go.

    And your fuel is going to run about 30-35% depending on some variables. I get about $3k to the truck to take one out to western WA or OR and the fuel bill is easily $1k of that. If you count food, showers and misc. expenses of being out on the road 8-9 days you can scrub another $250-300 or so from the bottom line. Of course that doesn't even address the truck itself...payment, insurance, maintenance and repair, etc. My truck is paid off but it is an oldy that needs attention and $$$ all the time...never ending as anybody who runs a truck knows full well. Bobtail/NTU policy is about $170/mo but I have a physical damage policy and some other extras so that is a little higher than it would need to be.

    If you stayed in hotels every night and had a $1000/mo truck payment you definitely wouldn't make any money. To make any real money in RV's you need a roll off trailer to move 2 or 3 at a time and then backhauls are a possibility. At that point you are better off in a big truck though. Safer and wont wear out as fast as the little trucks.

    It is a fun and easy job say April-Oct. Nov-March its not a great deal for safety reasons and the salt and rocks will beat your truck up and also you can be held liable for rock damage to the front of the trailer.

    Some of the best money I ever made was hauling RV/horse trailers, BUT, I had 4 custom built Sterling Haul and tows and this was 20 years ago, Long before it was "thing", hauling one RV at a time is great,,,,,"IF" you have another source of income and want to see the country,,,,,,OR, if you want to live like an animal in the backseat of a pickup. There are guys that do it successfully 20180430_123152.jpg , BUT, they are a small percentage, AND they usually live a good spot and have their route down.
