    Wow... I don't think a guy could get started right now to do hot shot if he tried. Trailer builds are months out & truck builds are out that much as well. Are you guys that is already out there just maintaining the heck out of your equipment & keeping them for now?

    The Diamond C trailers look like a very durable trailer. Do they work as good as they look? How much are you asking for the trailer?

    Sounds like the way to do it right now, cause if you can find a set up, they are marked up a good 20% higher than they were a year ago.

    If you want the best Diamond C is way too go. I've had Pj, H & H, and Kauffman and there is no comparison. Mine trailer is $37k

    Look around, just bought a 2000 35ft PJ with 8 new tires for 6 grand for a spare. Hadn't been out of the guy's barn since 2019 Only PJ I've ever seen over a yr old that was still black.

    Give it a month in the snow and salt. It will be rusting by spring time! I’ve owned two.

    Those barn finds are great! Doubtful I would buy a previously used hot shot trailer. They obviously get used hard.
