Dryvan:

A trailer or truck that that requires no special attention, such as refrigeration, that hauls regular palletted, boxed, or floor-loaded freight. The most common type of trailer in trucking.

Nice!

With you going over to van they aren't making you go out with a trainer are they? A couple days ago you asked about advice pulling a van. In addition to what you were told keep in mind how much of a pain some of these trailers can be. In my experience some trailers you can close the doors on a small hill, others require you to be on completely flat ground.

Nope no going with a trainer. I had one of our reefer guys give me some pointers for the 90 degree alley dock because I had never done the maneuver. I then practiced it. I'm under my first van load at the moment and it feels weird to pull something I didn't secure myself. The best thing so far is that my MPG loaded running 70 mph is better than empty at 65 with a curtain. As a lease operator that means even more money for me.

Reefer:

A refrigerated trailer.

Im on the Dry Van GP account for Roehl and plenty of miles to be had. I trained in phase 2 on dry van with alot of GP Loads went all over the midwest. Lots of paper loads, scaling alot but lots of miles. Wish all the best!
