If you get annual permits it is.

Don’t drive on the interstate in Minnesota with a big load. I learned the hard way that ignorance of the law is no excuse. It was expensive. If you know where you’re running and they all allow you to utilize it it’s worth it I think

Rent one for a couple of months then you will know if it works for you or not and you wont have to put out the money to buy one just to find out if it works for you or not.
I rent triples and tandems and each trailer works for that person. It all depends on where you or going, if its to the eastern US you wont want a triple but if you stay in the central or western US then they work really good. If you stay in your home state all the time I would say dont get one since your state is a 80 k state.

27000 with our day cab, 6 axle.
30500 with our Pete with bunk and 7 axles.

About 6 truck loads in 5 loads is the ratio. Do the math.

I know the math it's staying off the interstate is the problem if u have to run interstate your just carrying around extra weight and less product
