U.S. RV Transport company seeks drivers

A U.S. company that delivers recreational vehicles to dealerships wants to hire 200 Albertans to drive RVs from south of the 49th parallel to Alberta, where they're selling like hotcakes.

The company, U.S. RV Transport, moves travel trailers and fifth wheels across the United States, Canada and 22 other countries.

It has shipped about 1,000 RVs yearly to Alberta over the past five to six years. But this year, it's projecting to ship upwards of 5,000, said national sales manager Bill Goodwin, from Wakarusa, Indiana.

"We are literally swamped," Goodwin told Sun Media yesterday. "I'm going to put it on the oilfield.

So the company wants to hire 200 Alberta-based drivers who would make the 3,000-km trek to Wakarusa to pick up the RVs and tow them back to Canada, usually over four to five days, Goodwin said. The trip pays about $1,800 US, expenses included.

Anyone with a driver's licence and a three-quarter tonne or one-tonne pickup truck between the ages of 21 and 71 can apply. Inquiries can be made by calling 1-877-856-9275.
