Transport needed

Wondering if there are any of you fine folks out there that would be interested in driving a class a motorhome and jeep towed from Colorado to northern Texas anytime in the near future? I've purchased it from a private owner but I'm having difficulty getting up there to bring it down myself. If you think you'd be interested please send me a message and let me know how much you may charge for something like that

thank you

Congratulations on the purchase. Have been following several of your threads. Nice to see you found a unit that fits your needs.

IMO you would be better off getting a professional driver from a recognized company to move your unit. May be a bit more expensive but you will have some recourse should something go wrong.

Question, where does one go to find a professional driver?

I would look on the internet for expediting companies. All of the MH manufacturers contract companies for moving coaches.

I would check with a company called American Expediting. If they do not do it I am sure they can/will give you a lead.

Horizon Transport, Elkhart, Indiana. Cost may vary based on getting the driver to and from your location, $1.50/mi plus your normal operating expenses--fuel etc.

I can vouch for Paul Tomicek who was previously recommended. I did a deal with him on EBay about 7 years ago, bought a new golf cart and trailer from him. He delivered both on time, from Las Cruces to Houston. Deal went down exactly as agreed.

That would be the best thing. You have the ability to look at it for any damage prior to accepting the unit.

Congratulations on the rig. Hope you have many happy carefree miles and years with it.

I would hope the MH is still registered and insured in the seller's name until it is delivered. This would relieve you of financial obligation if the fellow had an accident en route. If he has cancelled insurance and turned in the plates he would have to reinsure it and relicense it to drive it down to you. You might even offer to help pay for this but it could be a good financial decision if an accident were to happen.
Payment due only after a final inspection and acceptance by you (the buyer).
The title should be clear and readily available upon delivery with no liens recorded on the title or a lien release accompanying the title. No money should change hands until the title is clear and you can accept ownership.
