2014 Coachman Catalina 38 BH, park model.
41 ft 9 inches, 8399 lbs shipping weight.
Not everyone gets the opportunity to haul a park model so if you do take it. 42 ft of bumper pull trailer creates some interesting towing situations lol. They are taller, greater ground clearance, and have poor aerodynamics so you are aware they are back there without a doubt.
Two pics to show size perspective...

Hope everyone enjoyed the holiday wknd.
Hitting the road in 5 minutes, off to get another one. Not sure what yet but the dealership I'm delivering to does not sell many park models so should be a 5er or bumper pull.

Question for greenenvy1: What restrictions do they require you regarding going inside the rig you are towing.

Another for instance, if you had a problem on the road with a tire or wheel bearing, who do you contact?

I am not sure if I have seen this asked or stated in this thread, but what is the smallest trailer you have hauled? My neighbour had a Little Guy Five Wide delivered to his house and he guy showed up towing it with a one ton dually. It looked funny back there and overkill for a tow vehicle for sure.

I know some people sleep in the trailers , I prefer my truck...feels more secure. We have a dispatch to call for trailer issues.

Think the lightest one was under 5000lbs.

Jinxed myself when I said it would probably not be a park model ......
2014 Crossroads Hampton 400 FL park model. 43 feet, 10,500 lbs. Axles are so close together on these it certainly does not make the towing experience any better. No wind atleast! They had a tornado warning near Lansing, MI as I was headed by so I took hwy 94 instead of the 69 for a change.

You mentioned that you get paid for a loaded mile, do you often get a back haul towards the factory and how far is it typically if not. Is your company helpful with trying to keep your unloaded miles down. That is a whole lotta trailer too. Keep up the good work.

We rarely do backhauls. Personally have not done one yet.
