With a wink and a smile, I was told to make sure my bottom lock on the camper's door was locked as it is specific to my unit and the master key doesn't work on it. "They're not supposed to sleep in the units, but you know... this makes sure of it."

I also locked my storage hatches (non-751 key or whatever that # is) and one of the transporters pulled my unit from Indiana to Maryland with no battery. They said they loved me because the unit had personal tags instead of transport tags which meant they didn't have to stop at weigh stations.

And, I was everyone's favorite on the run from MD to IN because they usually head back empty / not paid.

RV transport

Check out the info on the "Diesel Truck Resources" forum. There is a section dedicated to "Hotshot drivers", people who tow cargo trailers and RV's for pay. It isn't a wonderful life.

Each one that I spoke to talked about how much they enjoy it. To each their own and all that jazz.

Sure it is not like the navy's TV commercials... See the world be all you can be.. Then at the end in that high speed lawyer voice you realize you'll be the ships cook in the lowest part of the ship and never see the light of day!

You can make a small fortune pulling RVs to the dealers but you have to start out with a large fortune........

My buddy converted a small bus into a tow vehicle. He is a school bus technician and has his Class B ticket already for work. He takes on the occasional side job delivering RVs, boats, etc. and figures that covers his insurance and maintenance expenses.
