    I bought a 2009 volvo, 450 cummins, with 389K miles for $47,000.00. $1543 a month for 33 months. It is basically a lease purchase, meaning I can walk away if I choose

    How is that purchase working out for you as far as days out, home time, funds left over after all bills paid etc. Thinking that might be the way for us to go at this point!

    Wow, that is really great after all expenses. I can't even imagine us ever having that much from a week of hard work! I appreciate the answer! We might give it it a try yet! It is quite overwhelming taking on the purchase option, as much so as a home purchase, I think!

    Another good thing about there lease purchase program its a walk away lease so if does not work out you really have nothing to worry about

    Thanks, LMB for the info! That is a good weekly salary! I appreciate it and we might decide to go that route!

    What is the pay like for ownerOp? Percentage or mileage rate of what. Do you know? Does the loaded miles come out to anything above $2 mile? Avg...? Maybe $2.25 per ld. mi. ?? Thanks, if you know...appreciate it!

    Why post this here? This has nothing to do with Watkins Shepard trucking.

    If you follow this from the start this post is about Watkins Refrigerated that was also known as Watkins Truckload and now is Sunco Trucking
