The job is to pick up a registered and insured MK23 and M322 (Vet's plates)

A stop north of Reno, Nevada and another in Beaumont, TX then home to Boston, MA.

Reno: Load a 13K pound 1962 Peterbuilt 282 and a 6K pound 69 Kaiser M715 already on the Pete flatbed on the M322 - Both run very well and are registered/insured

Beaumont TX - A 4K pound Jeep and 3k pound assorted parts go into the bed with a crane and operator there to load it.

MTVR is well sorted, as is the M322. It's hauled 40K + pounds out of Barstow. You could tow with the Pete - 350hp Cummins with a 13 speed, but really low gearing... the MTVR is faster with soon to be a 475hp CAT installed tune and lifted governor.

Obviously, a Class A license is suggested. All are registered and insured in my name and you'd be under weight for the vehicles. I will pay a good wage and all reasonable costs.

Not sure if I'm reading this right. The Pete wont drive up onto the M322, the trailer is too tall and the Pete will high center on the fuel tanks. You'll have to add up the total heights too. The M322 is pretty tall and the M715 might put you over 14'

You're reading it right.

Already had the Pete on an M322. It's no where stock, much smaller tires for this drive. The driver isn't alone in loading and there are many things like forklifts available. M715 with the windshield down and top in the bed isn't higher than the Pete cab.
