Roehl Refer vs Van

I am currently finishing up Phase 3 of training.

I found the Phase 1 training and the my instructors in Marshfield to be great. My driver/trainer for Phase 2 was excellent. My time in Phase 3 has been challenging yet fun and I am really happy.

I am a Flatbedder based out of the Phoenix terminal. I was assigned a 2021 Freightliner with 150,000+ miles. I installed a mini-fridge and a microwave. There is a swinging arm mount for a TV... however, I doubt that I will install one. Wifi in the truck? Hmmm. No. If you know something I don't... please let me know. LOL.

Good luck. YMMV... but.... I think Roehl is an excellent choice... only based on my experience.

Thanks man! I'm looking forward to it. Wishing you all the best,

Roehl Refer vs Van

After a long talk with my dad who was OTR for 25 years and has pulled almost everthing and talking with my cousin who's done it for probably as long and has pulled everything, I've decided to go flatbed based on their advice. If all goes to plan, I'll be at Roehl on the 25th to begin training.

Why limit yourself to only one company?

Of all the research I've done, Roehl seems like the best fit for me.

Roehl Refer vs Van

I'm seriousy kicking the tires on the GYCDL with Roehl. Passed my CFL Saturday morning. (Never even studied, jst went and took it. I do know some about trucking. Enough to pass the CFL at least.) I just got off the phone with the recruiter and they are looking for national van, flatbed and refer in my neck of the woods. At this point I'm not interested in throwing tarps and straps out in the heat and the cold. So it's between van and refer. She explained to me the advantage over refer is since it is consistant, in the fact that food always runs no matter the season or economy. Made sense to me. MY only concern I've read that docking refers can be a little trickier. I mean, I have no doubt I can do it. Just curious if that is true. Also, from old threads I saw Roehl did not allow TV's, refrigerators, microwaves, etc... Now from some of the newer threads I've seen, it appears they do? And do their cabs have wifi for Netflix and such or do I need to rely on my cell phone plan for that? Thanks in advance.
