Help Wrecked Truck

So my truck has been totaled and some damage to my fifth wheel. I am trying to get my 2007 Denali from North Alabama back to Central Florida. Any suggestions. Companies or individuals who are going south to pick up a trailer. Truckers deadheading to get a load? Any help will be appreciated. I can provide more details if necessary.

Can your 5th wheel be towed?

Yes the damage is to the front cap and corner but it is still road worthy after I replace the pin box.

I have heard good and bad things about UShip so I was a little leery of them. Anyone have any experiences with UShip?

U-ship bid on a car I bought on e-bay. They under bid and couldn't get a trucker. I ended up going with another shipper. Search the web and you can bid the shipping yourself. If you know any car dealers they often know shipping companies.

Check with the local RV dealers and see who they use, also some of the local campgrounds may be able to help.

Isn't there a replacement truck in the near future? I for sure would prefer hauling my own damaged 5er rather then hope someone else can do it and as carefully without further damage.

Try calling CWRV transport @ 574-296-1800

They transported my 5'er back to the factory for some repair work. A different company brought it back. They did a respectable job and are insured too.

Considering they transport to the factories alot, they may have someone coming back empty that would be willing to detour for a job.

where's it at?

You say the 5er is towable. Where is it located, and where does it need to be delivered? I might be interested in helping you out, but you'd have to go along.

Hey The OldMan I need to get a hold of you. I am in Palatka. The trailer is in Athens Alabama and I want to bring it back to Palatka. You might be a Godsend. Is there a way to private message on this forum?

Hey I used to live in Palatka for a few years back in the late 80s. Still have friends there. I hope you get your transport worked out. Good luck.
