    I'm looking to get back into trucking based in Texas. I have experience as operations manager of dry vans transport over 10 years ago. Now, I want to start with one truck as a side investment running with a friend's o/o company. Dispatch fee is 12% plus 8% for flatbed.

    My idea is to get a newer sleeper truck (2017-2019) in order to minimize unexpected repairs and to be easier to get a good driver in this market.

    Any recommendations on truck make, model, engine, etc? Is there a "sweet spot" in terms of mileage and price point to look for?
