I bought a 12' vintage 1965 Aristocrat travel trailer for a good auction price on eBay. It was located in Salt Lake City Utah -- over 2000 miles from my home in Florida. I knew the shipping costs would be high, but was floored when bids came in at much more than the cost of the camper itself. Then Jeff from Rocky Top Transport sent me a bid that was half the price of the others. I checked his feedback and it was good, so I immediately accepted. He delivered the goods on his flatbed trailer, with no wear and tear to the camper itself. My only complaint is that he ended up missing the delivery date by almost a week, but part of that was caused by a mechanical failure and was unavoidable, and he did keep in touch with me as the shipment progressed. The job was well worth it given the excellent price and his careful handling of my camper. Don't hesitate to use this shipper. Definitely recommended with a smile -- Happy Trails Jeff!!! PS: The uShip site itself was very easy to navigate and I really liked the way you could tie the shipping bids in to an existing eBay auction so you could see the potential shipping costs BEFORE actually winning the merchandise. Overall it was a very good experience, plus I get a $50 shipping rebate!
