I so dislike hauling loads of those totes. They're definitely sloshy lol.

Nestle’ (including Deer Park) and Niagra are the primary Walmart bottled water vendors. During the hot summer months a frequent backhaul.

I agree very heavy, with a low center of gravity. Occasionally after slowing to a complete stop, I can feel the trailer “settling down” so to speak. Nothing significant though.

I haul to Nestle in Solon, OH. 20,000 lbs of boxes, not water so no surge to worry about.

I hate to disagree with people here because some of them get angry about it, but as someone who's been to Hollis many times I can tell you that a load of bottled water does not have any noticeable 'slosh' or surge.


We don't get mad when people disagree with us. We might get a little testy when people say dumb or false things though.

I'm actually glad to hear that those bottled water loads don't produce a surge. I've never hauled one, but I assumed the total mass of water would have that effect.

See there, you made me happy by setting me straight! smile.gif

Now we will wait and see if somebody wants to contradict you. rofl-1.gif

Ha ha, it's ok, I guess I was being a little snide because a few times in the past I've ruffled some feathers by disagreeing with 'the powers that be' (and one time for agreeing, because my post was apparently 'too similar' to what had already been posted).

Anyway, good luck again, Derrick.

At least a 1999 doesn't have DEF and loads of emissions to deal with and the stick is a plus but granted it might or might not be worn out. It could have low mileage and very well taken care of. Hello Don, how's the new job working out?
