This board is full of people who have not quite cracked open (purchased) their first egg, and plenty who have. I don't see myself driving this trailer from West to East, but it isn't hard to imagine that I could be interested & well qualified for something similar. I think manufacturers in the Elkhart area use retirees all the time for their deliveries. Forget about me, what are some of the questions to have for a driver?
Relevant experience - for example, CDL (Commercial License)
Clean print out of driving record.
Possible background check, or resume with institutional references.
Might the driver post a security deposit/bond or something similar?
Whose insurance would cover what? Mine, yours, or manufacturers?
Evidence of insurance, if applicable.
Pre-agreed upon way points or trip check points. Even if just a selfie pic at the entry to a state.
Tolls, fee, & expense reimbursement. Breakdowns, tires
Haul on flatbed, or tow on road?
Are they allowed to sleep in the new trailer? ...cook? ...shower? (I'd be ok if they slept in a sleeping bag, but I would not want the smell of fish fried in garlic, nor my grey & black tanks filled upon delivery).
I'd want to draw up an agreement listing authorized driver(s) and other terms. Sometimes you can find these on the internet. (Hint: RV rental agreements).
I hate to admit it, but there are a few trailers that I would almost pay to spend a couple days experiencing them.
Other suggested questions?
