    Default Semis vs truck

    I'm wondering if its as economical or better (expense per hive) to take a semi load of 4-ways or a F250 deisel with a 20-30ft gooseneck flatbed full of 4-ways. Thoughts? For going to almonds, about 1150 miles for me.

    Legally without a CDL you will only be able to haul 100 doubledeep hives on gooseneck.

    Any trailer over 10,000# requires a class A no matter what you pull it with, even a pickup.

    Here is a link to support Davidsbees statement:

    However, as the original poster is in Wyoming, wishing to go to California, multiple other states need to be crossed before one gets to CA.
