Bumped into an old guy in the park,talking the talk.He mentions he drives to Sydney 2 and 3 times a week.

I said trucks no he said.

Has a late model diesel van fitted with a bed , in outer Melbourne near the Hume hwy there is a cottage industry making caravans up to 60 companies making them.

So twice a week sometimes three times he delivers vans to Sydney, has a sleep and turns around .

been doing it for years and every so many years buys a new van.

Trip fee is $1,100 and he pays for his own fuel ect, was saying he often comes back with a new boat on the back , so another $1,100.

Not a bad earn for a retired guy ..say twice a week and once week with a boat on the back.

its not for me ,but interesting how people in retirement earn a living.
