Camper Hauling

Anyone here ever done or thought about doing it as a career? I see a job opening for it and a truck for sale thats setup for it. I just think you would need a big buffer to get started..


truck guy has for sale. 07 dodge

Not sure, Usually I would say if your going to be on the road that much usually they just bring out the semi's. They would look good. But even for full timers you have a rv for a reason.

Hmmm.....with the sleeper on the back, that might inhibit you from pulling some 5th wheels, depending on the pin box offset.

We see them all the time bringing in campers from the south. They must make a decent dollar, otherwise they probably wouldn't do it. But you had better REALLY like driving, cause that's all you would be doing. I doubt there are any laws about time on the road like truckers have, and is likely how they make money, LONG HOURS,

Nope, these guys do have to follow the rules just like truckers. Once they slap that hauling emblem on the door, they are no longer considered hauling an Rv, they are an actual carrier, at least here in the states. They are independent contractors to the mfgs., so when they haul a rig somewhere they have to find something to tow back on their own, or they just waste time and fuel. Add to that they only get paid mileage- not any type of hourly wage, and it soon becomes more of a pain than any fun.
