There are several companies who do relocation. I have listed a few websites below, but no way are they recommendations only some that are available!

http://www.rvshippers.com/

http://www.uship.com/

http://rvhaulers.ca/

http://www.rvtransport.com/

I would recommend getting quotes from several.

Thanks Don. I've called one/more of them recently. Costs are similar, the insurance and back up plan for mechanical problems with the tow vehicle are important to me.

Rob, looked in my "camper phone book" and I must have taken it out of there, can't find it!

Sure hope that you can find someone! Sorry, Donna.

No problem Donna. Between this site with Don, and my local rv dealer Bayou RV-Bossier City, I've got a dozen names to follow up with.

Great! Keep us posted, as to who you go with, as others might just need them at some point, too!

If I was near you I'd do it for cost of fuel. Great excuse for a scenic ROAD TRIP! Good Luck.

www.uship.com

You post the date, to/from locations, description of item to be moved, and in a bid-format you get the best price. Can even research the company bidding upon your shipment.

Looks like $1400 is the best bid so far.

Thanks for the suggestions. The move in February went great. Used a website (uship.com) where haulers can post their bids. $1 per mile is what we found. If you need the name of the hauler, lemme kno.
