Jayco Yard

I took this video about 2 weeks ago. It is one of the Jayco yards in Middlebury, Indiana. It will give you an idea of how many trailers are sitting awaiting transport to dealers. Please excuse the shaky cell phone video.

That’s a lot of trailers. It looks like you have a bit of job security.

Indiana is supposed to be the RV production capital of the country. Indiana RV Connection in Middlebury, where we ordered and picked up our Whitehawk, handles nothing but Jayco; and their lot was bulging with new Jaycos awaiting pickup. A buddy and I picked our TT up on April 3 and headed west on I80, then south on I57. It seems most of the southbound RVs were being hauled by transport companies. While at an IL rest area, two transporters with same signage on trucks turned in in front of us. It never occurred to me, but obviously all those new trailers have to get hauled one by one to the destination dealer. I'd be interested to hear what the transporters charge, and what a typical week is for them. ...

search commercial rv hauling on here and you will see some insight into this. As to fees.....it varies by the company. Pay is a by the "loaded mile" and is not an overly high paying job. You can (I do) make a living at it. Me personally I have my own company and am leased to another company. This enables all the tax deductions necessary to succeed at this.

That's a lot of rigs. Never seen so many in one place.
Thanks for sharing.

Safe travels,
