We discuss at length our participation in the RV Tech Course at Eustis, FL.  http://rvtechcourse.com/  We spent an intense 5 days learning all about starting your own small business in the morning and all about the systems in an RV the rest of the mornings and all afternoons. We covered Electrical, propane, water, and RV exterior systems as well as RV appliances. We also did many hands-on exercises on students’ RV’s.

We spend a lot of time on the why and how of RV inspections and the benefit he inspection brings to both buyer and seller.
We discuss the role of the National RV Inspection Association(NRVIA) http://nrvia.org/ plays in setting ethics and standards for this fast growing industry. We talk about the RV Inspection Connection (RVIC) http://www.rvinspectionconnection.com/ as a company that hires inspector contractors to do RV inspections.

LTRVD0302 RV Inspector Training

In this show we interview Terry Cooper aka the Texas RV Professor and his wife Evada or Lady E. Terry owns the RV Inspection Connection. The company both provides RV Inspector Training and arranges with prospective RV owners to have an RV inspected before they buy it. This is a very much needed service nowadays with so many folks buying used RVs.

We have developed a friendship with these lovely folks and I respect what they are trying to do with their new company. I will attend some of the training and I’ll report on it in a future show. This could be a wonderful opportunity for someone wanting to start their own small business as an RV inspector, and most of the details are in the interview.

Next week we’ll talk more about the Tampa RV Supershow.
