Sorry I never got back to you. Took a little extra time off over the holidays. Here's what works for me in regards to hauling rv's.
Sign on with a reputable company to gain experience. Maybe 6 months. Then start talking to some dealers close to you. You want to haul for just 1 dealer. Then you can strike out on your own cutting out the transport company and put a little more in YOUR pocket.
Don't speed cause fuel milage is your friend!
Treat the trailers as if they were your own.
Always be on the lookout for inexpensive fuel.
Don't eat in restaurants and don't sleep in motels.
You've got to be prepared to spend a LOT of time away from home. I run approximately 3800 miles a week which is way more than most haulers, but still DOT legal.
Maintain your truck! Fix the small things before they turn into big things.
Treat dealers with respect. You wouldn't believe how many arrogant drivers are out there.
I could go on and on, but you get the idea

So I take it you need a CDL to be an RV transport driver? Any other specific requirements, either for driver or tow vehicle? What constitutes a reputable company?
