Hi, I read your post and was very interested in the fact that they may need drivers. I have a friend who is partially disabled and is out of work. He has a class A CDL license and delivering motorhomes would be something he could do. If they do need drivers and you could get me a contact number we may be able to help a person in need. I am a forum member so if you could send me a PM I would appericate it.
Thanks
 
Thanks again. My friend did get in touch with Bennet. I am not sure how things will pan out but I will let you know.
 
John, Didn't they (Bennett) have an office right over by the company that does the painting for Winnebago?
I was under the impression that the transport company uses local people for drivers.
It will be interesting to hear how the call turns out.
 
Clay - apparently Bennett has a local office in FC (don't know where exactly) probably as a liaison with Winnie Ship Out.  I don't know where the drivers come from.

If your friend has a one ton dually, 5th wheel deliveries are also a good option...there are a few drivers on another forum I belong to.

Excellent!  I've heard that delivering RVs is a tough business and it's difficult to make much money at it.
My father delivered M/Hs after he retired from the car business (He owned a Pontiac Dealership in Los Angeles for 30 years). He loved doing it because he loved driving the country. However, the $ paid his expenses and airfare home without a lot left (he wasn't doing it for the $). He prided himself on being able to do 1,000 miles a day (do the math). My mother was dead and it was something to keep him busy. Anyone that expects more than that may be disappointed.

He was nearly killed in a head-on collision with an out of control 18-wheeler on black ice roads in Texas. He died of cancer 2-years later. He LOVED driving those M/Hs though.
 
Friends that we camp with at Imperial Dam did it as a husband and wife team. They never said how much they earned, but seemed happy with it.
