    Default Vehicle Transport from the East Coast?

    Does anyone here know/ recommend a transporter who can deliver a 25 foot Dodge ( I know Mopar) motorhome to SW Michigan. It does not run and weighs about 10,000 #'s. It will require either a gooseneck or lowboy type trailer but no special permits. Within the next 4-6 weeks weather permitting is fine. Distance is about 700 miles from Delaware to SW Michigan. I am 5 minutes off of I-94. Lucrative way to pay off some of the darn Christmas bills that are pending. Regards, Upstaged in SW Michigan. Prefer someone who is licensed, bonded and insured.

    Tracco w/a 440? They're neat - Just saw one sitting the other day. Lmk if you have any questions on wheels/tires for them. That's what hangs people up on those old Dodge MH chassis. It's often just as if not more expensive to get modern wheels/tires on them as the MH itself costs and there's no good cheap answer.

    You can give this guy a try. Sorry don't have his last name handy. Call Alex at 1 224 565-7938. We have a restoration shop in Windsor. He shipped a 69 Corvette we restored from Detroit to Louden TN on a goose neck covered trailer for us. Cost for that was about $600.00.

    Hope that works for you.

    main thing is the motorhome doesn't run so someone will have trouble getting it on the trailer. If you pay for a lowboy semi trailer, you are going to be looking at about $4.00 a loaded mile. PM me and I might be able to get a truck and trailer out that way.
    all this traveling for work is getting in the way of my Buick time.

    David, I think you are thinking of Sean Ryder, the former bpg president. He runs his own auto transport business. I'm not 100% sure, but this might be too large for his equipment. Never hurts to ask though.
