Just purchased my first truck camper from an auction site. Problem is my truck is in for repairs and I need to get it moved before the truck will be repaired.

The camper is located in Pennsylvania and I need to have it moved to Maryland. It's a big boy, so it takes a dually to move.

I've been searching Google but haven't found any companies that can move these.

Any direction you guys can provide would be appreciated.

Why the need to move it soon? Could the place/person store it somewhere until you can go get it?

One of the members here had a similar problem. He rented a dump truck from Home Depot ( I think it was). Loaded it on and tied it down with some heavy duty ratchet straps.
I don't think he was travelling as far as you need to, but it may be an option. Hopefully he will be along shortly to better address your question.

Call a towing Co with a roll back. Call several as the price will be all over the place.

I found uship to be a nightmare of lowballing brokers who had no idea what I was trying to transport and were just answering EVERY new listing with, "We have a truck in your area ready and waiting for your load." They show up with a rig totally inappropriate to ship your load, and then start in with how much extra it's going to cost... No thank you.
