John, I don't know anything about steelman, but if you are planning a lease arrangement, I would consider leasing from an independent company who doesn't force you to haul their freight. There are several to consider, but some drivers I know really like Lone Mountain Truck Leasing. You make a small down payment (3500-5000)
, make monthly payments between 1200-1600 per month, and at the end of your leasing period, the truck is yours. No balloon payments at the end. This way you can haul freight for anyone you wish to or get your own authority and build up money for a trailer. If your credit is ok, try the dealerships for a used truck. If you're willing to take a risk, go to some of the truck auctions or go to Don Baskin truck sales. The last 2 don't give you warranty, but you will pay a minimum amount for a truck. Some drivers I know have purchased this way with mixed results. Talk to as many owner operators as you can to find out the good, the bad, and the ugly of owning right now. Ask them who works on their trucks, is it best to haul for a company or yourself, what area is best to work out of, etc. Ask about financiers, tune into Kevin Rutherfords program "Trucking and Beyond" and become a member of OOIDA subscribe to their classes and forums.
