    Van spot market rates are up $0.00 cpm week over week!

    Flat and refrigerated up $0.01 cpm!

    What do you plan to do with all that extra money! LOL

    This is just an anecdotal observation on my part, however, dealerships that I pass by frequently that had NO new trucks on their lots just 6 mos ago, are starting to fill up with them now.

    Believe it or not I used to take my truck & trailer right into the parking garage that leads to the outside R.V. parking area and burn a few hours when I was in the area overnight.
