    They don't seem to care if you run hard either. 1 load every 90 days but pay does'nt seem all that high. Maybe they will have trailers at dealers to move elsewhere. A lot of people buy on the internet at some other town than the one they live in.

    I'm looking to get into pulling rv's, what is the best company for drivers without a class A license, rate of pay per loaded mile, weekly averages and if there are any online practice tests to get me familiar with this give them please.

    Most will not hire without some driving experience.

    You might try Foremost, they used to hire and train for log purposes. As far as driving, you are on your own.

    Can you please define experience as it pertains to hauling RV trailers & 5th wheels; I too am looking to make the jump, and plan to apply to Camping World. I have experience pulling single car trailers, boats, lawn trailers, but no long haul or log books

    At my company, you need at least 6 months of commercial driving experience that has a trailer involved.

    Sounds like you have been around this trade for some time,Medic; whats your take on Camping World running their own transport piece, they state no Canada or Alaska, option of dedicated route, have store fronts through out the U.S.
    Sure there is a negative in there some place, as I have been a 3rd party vendor providing service for 1 of the largest retailers in the world, and understand subs' and the struggles that go into not only managing the production of what you do but managing them as well

    I would have to take a pay cut to work there. In addition, there has been quite the discussion in the industry concerning this outfit.

    There are many rumors and concerns with them.

    Fully understand, seems like they are going to make a go at this and based simply on size can be a major player, which is positive and a negative to the smaller services running now to really specialize their service...all that aside what would you say is 3 solid things someone should do to get into this trade on a full time (10-11 months a yr) as I would believe there are slow periods in like must service industry

    Buying the right truck is the key more than anything else.
    Driving with the right knowledge and not for speed. Waste is the killer.
    Proper planning of the trip.

    I run all year.
