Commercial RV hauling

Great thread, love reading it. I am surprised that you use a wd hitch. I figured they wouldn't want the a frames marred during transit. Is that common practice?

Have not seen it first hand but heard of yards where a wdh is mandatory before leaving . Makes a world of difference with hose tonque heavy park models ever with a 1 ton tv. As far as marks on frames I''ve never noticed any damage. The pinch bolts are just snugged and the brackets have yet to move on units I''ve hauled.

Interesting. Definitely seems safer and easier on your truck to boot. Thanks for the info!

So do you tow them into Canada and sell them? Or do you tow them for private owners?

As with most rv haulers I am leased to another company. They secure the contracts and we haul them to the dealerships. I see you are in Manitoba....I deliver to GNR in Winnipeg and another one in Brandon.

I, too, very much enjoy seeing photos of the RVs you deliver. But are you ever going to deliver to a warm sunny place, and leave all the snow and ice behind ? LOL

Jayco uses the Towmax tires which are made in China, however, I believe that most if not all the TT tires are now being made there. I have read mixed reviews on these tires...some love them some say there ^&*((*(! Can you share your experience hauling Jayco's and if you've had many issue with the Towmax tires?

While taking delivery, I noticed small marks from the w/d brackets that the transporter used during transport. Nothing big, but noticeable to someone who was looking. The only reason that I looked is that curiosity got the best of me and I wondered if transporters used them too. I drive through Elkhart Indiana several times a year to visit family out east and I notice that there is about a 50/50 split between transporters using w/d vs not using w/d. I find that my Jayco is manageable without w/d but handles much better with.

At any rate, I enjoy reading your posts, please continue to update us on your adventures!

Have not hauled any Jaycos as of yet. WDH sure makes handling better even with a one ton. You are correct though there seems to be a 50/50 mix on using them. Heading out Sunday am to pick up another Crossroads RV. Went to the local RV show today and saw some nice Jaycos there! On a site note I saw the last trailer I delivered at the show as well, yes I may memorize the last 4 digits of the vin #s lol.

I had considered doing this but I only have a 3/4 ton gasser and my wife told my I was crazy. If anything were to ever happen where I would lose my current job I would seriously consider this job.

Don't think any companies will hire you on with a gasser. They just don't hold up to the high mileage like a diesel. I left my job to do this and have never been happier. Not for everyone though/

We saw a TT with that floorplan at the RV show in Covington, KY, this weekend. It's not what we want but it was a nice feature. The fireplace was on the rear wall with shelves next to it. It had a real "homey" feeling to it when you walked in.
