So far my experience with trucks has not been easy to flip them and usually lose money.

One thing to think about though if you intend to push the container rental is your downtime with the truck. Even the best of shops you will have at minimum a week of down time transferring a hoist from one truck to another.
That's pretty cool to get three trucks worth of life. I did have that thought with the Kodiak that the box would be moved to another truck, so far everyone I've told that to has pooh-poohed that idea.
Do or do not. There is no try. yoda
