    I know mine is not locked but I won't do any deletes until the warranty is done in two more years

    What is the typical weight (or avg) of the RV's that are being transported? Is it a 50/50 mix of bumper pull and 5th wheels or more of one or another?

    I was listening to Kevin Rutherford the other day and he had a great idea for hauling RV's for profit. Forget about PU trucks. He suggested buying a HDT that has been converted for RV use with only one rear axle. These are available with low miles for as little as less than $10.000 with the correct hitch. That truck will outlive you. It will have a sleeper and you can pull at least 2 trailers on the right flatdeck. Or one big toy trailer behind the rig. Sounded like a good idea.

    These have been around for a long time as well as haul and tow setup.

    Bumper pull range 2000 lbs to over 10,000 for park models, 5th wheels can go as high as 16,000 lbs If the GVWR is above 26,0001 you need a Class A CDL to move it. The mix will be what's ready to move when you are.

    Does anyone pull a load for one rv freight broker, then get a backhaul from another rv freight broker, running with your own authority? I see rv brokers advertising for drivers here in the NW, and i know Indiana has freight. It seems to me that this would be the solution to all those wasted, ridiculous deadhead miles you guys have to run. I cannot believe how inefficient the current running model is.
