travel trailer transport logbook?
New to the business and seem to be doing good. I have questions about logging time and have asked this question to many other drivers in the business and got different answers. I am driving a I ton dually and don't always have another trailer to pull back "deadheading". My truck is not registered as a commercial vehicle I just got dot mc insurance and magnetic signs. After I drop trailer, remove magnets do I have to log drive time to go get another trailer?

I know this is an old thread, but any updates?
Starting my own business
In the state of PA, if my vehicle is under 26k and my trailer is 14,000 GVWR do I need a CDL or just a DOT medical card (i.e.; Dodge 3500 crew 8ft bed and gooseneck 14,000 GVWR dual axle)?

What exactly are trip/fuel permits and I going to need them?

What types of insurance am I going to need if I plan to haul mostly cars but also mid-sized equipment and household goods and how much of that insurance?

Is there a list someone can provide with most permits I would need to start my business ...

Hey everyone, I'm a big trucking fan, hot shot fan.

I'd love to get into the business one day.

At the moment those aren't my plans, but possibly later on.

I love reading the threads that show all the loads.

I can easily spend an hour looking at photos!

Glad to be a member and hope to learn more about the business!
Questions about RV hauling
Just started with new company. Hauling RVs with dealer plate not transporter plate. Company claims we're legal no log book & no scales. Got a warning ticket in Arkansas for going around the scale. Cop couldn't prove I was hauling commercial cause I'd already delivered RV so no ticket. He didnt pull over my buddy running a 5500 but he has not forhire sticker.Just got me wondering just how legal am I? My truck stands out cause it has a one of a kind hauler bed.  Opinions on the dealer pla ...

I looked at the numbers wrong. I took home $1821.29. I usually offset the 25% due to not going over my fuel surcharge or coming right up against it. I drive about 60-65 mph. Get bitched at for driving slow sometimes, but i tell them its my truck and my fuel get over it.

Are y'all still hauling with them. If so are you still making it go pretty good? I've been wanting to do this kind of work for awh ...
