Indiana Transport Pay

Headquartered in Elkhart, IN, Indiana Transport offers more than 45 years of combined experience in transportation. The company, which is located in the RV capital of the world, focuses primarily on transporting 5th wheel RVs and travel trailers. However, they also haul motorized RVs, gooseneck trailers, utility vehicles, buses, boats and cars.

Indiana Transport is one of the leading RV transport companies in Indiana. The company works only with contractors, who may drive for their tow-away, multi-hail or drive-away divisions.

How Much Does Indiana Transport Pay?

If you’re considering working with Indiana Transport, you may be wondering about their average RV transporter pay.

The company pays on a per-mile rate.

Half the money for the trip is loaded onto a pay card once the trailer is dispatched. The other half is dispatched after the delivery.

The company does not disclose how much they pay per mile. However, data is available through third-party websites on pay for drive-away drivers working with Indiana Transport.

Drive Away Driver Salary

According to, the average salary for drive away drivers at Indiana Transport is:

  • $124,796 per year for transporters
  • $53,066 per year for independent contractors

As an independent contractor, you will be responsible for expenses that employees may not have to think about, like taxes and vehicle maintenance. Drive-away drivers have less to worry about, as they drive motorized RVs.

Drivers have the option of booking backhauls through the load board, but it’s important to keep in mind that these loads are not guaranteed.
