Nice pics however. Thanks.

Go hard is it to load the trailers on and off you trailer?
The winch and gravity make things roll of quite easily.

The first one was white. Bought this 2008 Ram 5500 and started working it almost exactly 1 year ago.

I travel the same corridor most of the time so the scenery is boring lol! This trip (and the next few) take me into Lancaster, PA and then across to Indiana so some of it will be a change.

I've always wanted to do this in the winter during my downtime. But I only have a 2500 and I live in upstate NY. Any possibility for me? Haven't really looked into it much.

Don't lol

If you want to do rvs / cargo trailers your best bet is likely to contact one of the big companies in Indiana. If you want to do "hotshot" work than do some searching around your area and see if anyone else is already doing it.

What he said... but without the lol.

RV: I did the RV delivery 2007-2009. Back then, and it may still hold true, that there are few units being ordered/sold/delivered in the winter months but MANY drivers waiting in the office to deliver them. The companies also first dispatch the deliveries to the drivers that have been with them all year. New drivers get what's left over. Unless, and maybe even if, you virtually 'live' in the office, someone else will get the delivery.

I would also add that unless you do your own maintenance, your money will mostly go into fuel, insurance, and maintenance expenses.

My truck is already insured for commercial use and I'm the only one that takes care of the truck. I get 16 mpg towing 6500 lbs and it doesn't drop much from there until it's over 12k.
