    Welcome to the RTA Forum!

    You could do this trip in as little as 5-6 days, if you treat it like a speed run, you have excellent conditions, and of course, depending upon where in the huge targets of "oregon" and "new jersey" you'll be starting/ending this trip.

    Having said that, a "large bucket truck" doesn't sound like it is something where you'll be traveling at full freeway speeds, so that could easily add another day or more to your trip. Also, the later into October you get, the more likely you are to start seeing early season winter storms. Those are some of the variables that can quickly eat up time. I'm also assuming this is not a trip where you're planning any stops to sitesee or explore, which would also potentially require more days.

    Without knowing all the variables of your exact plan, I'd plan on the trip taking a full week, and be happy if you can shave a day off of that, and be ready to add a day if your trip if you have complications while on the road.
