I would have to agree with the people who say the liability is not worth taking a chance on without the proper insurance. If you decide to do it anyway I would at least do a walk around with the owner and document any damage no matter how small.

Yep, hauling things for money opens a BIG can of worms. DOT regulation, insurance, vehicle inspections, licensing, etc, etc. Sure, you can probably get away with it a time or two but if you get caught the fines are steep. My area regularly runs stings on CL to catch unlicensed people doing this exact thing.

Some folks on forums must have run out of room on their shirts for all the badges. The weight police, tire police, propane police, bumper mounted bike rack police, just this week the double post police were chartered here, and now the transport police.

What is a reasonable price to charge to haul a fifth wheel? I was thinking 2-2.50.


Did not notice the OP even asked for opinions on the legalities of it. I'll hang my hat with laknox......sometimes having a little outlaw blood in ya is not a bad thing.

It's called risk analysis, if the risk far exceeds the reward then it falls in the common sense category. Your entitled to your opinion just as everyone else is entitled to theirs.

If you are playing the "buddy" game, showing receipts works against you as it looks a lot like you are running a business...an unprofitable business but still a business.

It's also highly dependent on your new "buddy" playing along with insurance fraud if anything goes wrong.

He wanted to know what is reasonable...without knowing the costs and risks, how does he assess what is reasonable?

$10/mile may be too little if he gets in an accident and insurance company decides it was a commercial operation and not covered.

Since we didn’t have a truck to pull our 5th wheel yet the dealer where we bought it from wanted $300.00 to deliver it 90 miles. I left it at the dealer until we found a truck.
