I've got a CDL

And when I've been using it, I try to use it pulling either a tanker or a flatbed.

One of the big reasons I'd rather not pull a dry-van is the need to remember that trailer you can only see the sides on- is 13 feet tall starting about ten feet behind where you're sitting.

My bucket truck and dangle/digger were at 12'6" and 13', but they stuck over my hood so I remembered.

If you've ever wondered why (or noticed) there were signs telling how high the overpass was...
except for oversized loads, 13 feet is the highest a covered/box van is made.

I'm telling you this to show you why it's not a good idea to lease a truck to just anyone.

Especilly someone without a CDL...Penskie...Ryder...
