    Pros

    Great position for independent people, You are by yourself, setting your own schedule. No forced dispatch.
    A lot of positive talk from management.

    Cons

    It's feast or famine, with a lot of famine.
    You are an independent contractor with no benefits. Delivering expensive Motorhomes nationwide. You are paid by the mile and must pay your fuel cost out of this milage rate. It is almost impossible to make a living delivering only new motorhomes out of the Wakarusa yard, so reloads are important. Most people use a tow car to get to the next pickup point. (another big expense) The only way to make it in this business is to do a lot of reloads and to stay out as much as possible. This is no job for someone with a young family... you will never see them.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve the pay plan. Figure out a way to become more diversified so you are not dependent on the whims and cost cutting measures of 4-5 major RV manufacturers. In 5-7 years their business will be tanking anyway because the US will be out of customers with the disposable income required to purchase these expensive toys. The middle class is dying and won't be back for at least a generation.
