How did you get into the RV industry?
I have been in the RV repair business since 2004 when I was first asked to help a friend’s father-in-law with his mobile RV repair business. My sole purpose was to help him catch up with a few repair jobs. A quick two-week job opportunity turned into 2 ½ year of a nonstop job. In December of 2006, I started my own RV mobile business which provides onsite service repairs from the Florida Keys to the Palm Beach area.

“The Legend” Course Instructor

How did you get into the RV industry?
I started my RV career in Springfield, Ohio. Worked for a family run dealer out of high school until I decided what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Nine years later, I purchased the dealership and years later sold it and moved to Florida in 1986. I have been a service manager at large single location as well as the parts and service director at multi location dealers. I became a Master Certified Technician in 1988 and have maintained my certification. I have been involved with certification testing and training for many years. I started the technician training program at the largest dealer during those years, as well as conducting RV training for Brewster Tech. I also served as a service manager for two different RV manufacturers service facilities in Florida. During the last 22 years, The Florida RV Trade Association asked me to be involved with developing the Service Training Program on The Distance Learning Network. This was a very rewarding experience for me, which gave me the opportunity to meet a lot of great people and learn a lot about RV Service. I was on the board that developed the training and testing for RVDA’s Service Manager, Service Advisor, Parts Manager and Warranty Management certifications. Currently, I am the Florida Sales Rep for Dealer Resources Group in the state of Florida. I was recently assigned to be the chairperson for the RVTI Curriculum Committee.
After 50 years I have had the pleasure of meeting many talented people in this industry. We are experiencing growth in the industry that I thought would never be possible.

Digital Presence Coordinator for the FRVTA

How did you get into the RV industry? 
While living and traveling throughout the Western USA in a camper van, I developed a passion for RVing. The full-time RV lifestyle gave me the flexibility to rock climb, hike, and show my daughter the majesty of our National Parks. After moving to Florida in 2004, a career helping others discover the joy of RVing was a perfect fit. I have held a variety of positions in the RV Industry including General Manager, Parts & Service Director, and COO of an RV Business Software provider. Currently, I am the President of a Business Consulting company that helps small businesses in the RV Industry with all aspects of solid business growth. In addition, I am the Digital Presence Coordinator for the FRVTA and travel the state of Florida producing RV Industry promotional videos for our members.
