I was just saying, don't knock it till you try it man. No disrespect intended. And from a standpoint of being in debt at the moment, yes I would rather spend cash than take out a giant loan. Regardless of the interest rate.

he's never done it but acts like an expert on the topic

I've been in the trucking industry for going on 25 years and I've been a successful business owner for over 10 years. I'm not acting like anything. I know what I'm talking about but please, feel free to prove me wrong if you like. I've challenged owner operators and lease drivers for many years to prove to me they're making the big money they always claim they're making, and never has even one of them been able to do so. Not one.

I'd rather wait like five years down the road and pay for a majority of it outright

So you want to spend all of your cash to start the business instead of financing the truck using the lowest interest rates in history?

But yeah, I'm the one who doesn't know what he's talking about.

Owner Operator:

An owner-operator is a driver who either owns or leases the truck they are driving. A self-employed driver.

That's something you would say about a fun hobby, like going camping or fishing, or maybe eating a strange food like octopus. To say that about buying an expense truck and going into business sounds like......

If you had the means to save up the cash to buy a truck, you wouldn't have the debts you have right now in the first place now would you?
