    But but but... you get to be your own boss!

    And.... you get to run 70 mph!

    And all the other reasons.

    he's been paying for that truck, for 4 years.... $350,000..??? was that the price of the truck..???

    wow, where can i get that great a deal...???

    this is why one should really just be a driver for say about 5 years. build up a savings, and BUY a truck out right.

    as well as, at the very least, have "some" business education, not just, "wannabe" education.

    the video at over 2 hours, was just too long to watch, i got the gist of it, in a fee minutes.

    too many think that just cuz they are drivers, they can be o/o's with the snap of a finger.

    Alterations made to auto carriers moves the price up. Fellow I know ordered new auto carrier tractor, paid $250K CDN for truck. Did quite well for the 5 years he ran it, then decided he preferred his wife cooking daily.

    doesn’t sound like this guy went home much at all. I think I heard he was going from SLC to grand junction to like Virginia for 4K while paying 3k(?) a week for the truck.

    sad video honestly dudes crying with his wife right there and two guys come out on top with the truck, looking for their next victim.

    I'm thinking the 300k is not only payments, it has to include other fixed costs over the years he's been there. I cant imagine the truck itself is 300k...that's 2 brand new trucks

    could be. I thought those car haulers got expensive, especially in a fleece purchase so it sounded about right..
