I’ve been thinking about buying a hopper bottom and I’m wondering who to use who not to use on this load board? What is the stuff actually paying? And what areas to stay away from for getting back out of? And I’m getting into this on my own and I’m new so any and all advice is helpful

So you're buying equipment but don't have any customers? Why not go out and find places that need your services and THEN buy whatever they could utilize most? If you put the cart before the horse you'll always be in a place to be taken advantage of by middle men.

Don't Hoppers don't pay.

Buying a hopper was the best decision I’ve ever made. Talk to Eclipse and ask for Erin. She is awesome. Trust me you will not regret it.
