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

I was just quoted $1.90 per mile... + $105.00 Toll fee to move a fifth wheel from Eastern PA to Indiana and back again.

I received 5 different quotes, and they were all in the same price range..

I'm curious why you are asking? Are you getting quotes from others to move one for you? Or are you looking to do this to get paid? If the latter, you'll have to register as a commercial vehicle, and comply with all those regulations. I think there is money to be made doing that, but there is also a lot of things to consider doing that as well.

Op here
I saw an add on Craigslist looking for someone to haul a camper to a location close to some family property and thought I could make a little money and stop by the property.

Industry rates will vary greatly depending on location and if they are a dead head route.

If you are thinking of just picking side work, talk to your insurance agent first...my bet is the occasional haul won't cover the insurance and licensing requirements.

Personally, I'd be "moving it for a buddy/cousin/co-worker" at +/- $2/mile, cash. [emoticon] Keep gas receipts and say, "this is what I got paid; fuel only."

I'm with others - that's a big risk for a small reward to do this on the side like that. My guess is that any accident would be declined by insurance unless you were registered and insured to do it (which comes with extensive costs of it's own) - and I wouldn't count on Joe Craigslist to lie to an insurance adjuster as to why you were towing his/her rig. That $100 weekend gig could end up costing thousands if things go awry.

IMHO - it's an all-in or all-out scenario. The middle ground is just too risky for me.

someone you know then I would go and do it, but a Craigslist add would make me nervous to even think of doing it..

and what IF something happened? Will your insurance cover you when the guy owns the trailer get PO'd and screams about you damaging his pride & joy trailer. Our even if you don't and he claims you did? Do it rght with proper license or don't do it.
