    Anybody else watch this? I started checking out the first season because Roy was hauling Star Wars memorabilia and this show pulled me right in..probably because if I ever won the lottery and didn't have to work a day job I'd like to do something like that and see the country.

    Storage Wars is another fave of mine..as is Barter Kings. Just interesting to see some of the stuff they show on all of these.

    I think there is some scripting to it..one of Jennifer's shipments in particular this season I believe the order was cancelled that the show didn't indicate.

    Roy is my personal favorite..first off he's a fellow New Englander haha. That and while people say he's a grouch, he's all business. I myself would have about the same reaction if I was shipping something and the owner didn't provide the proper dimensions/weight, especially the weight since that's important to know what the job will cost.

    Oh, and Roy has a cat that travels with him too. If my 2 furballs weren't wild as hell I'd do the same with them

    Correct, he had the Chevy/GMC red dually. On the show he said it had 86000 miles in 10 months. Yikes!

    You know these shows are totally scripted and fake, right? Like storage wars where the producers put stuff in the units...
