Today on the podcast, I am interviewing Jason Wyatt, a fulltime RVer and retail arbitrage specialist. Retail arbitrage is buying products for a low cost from places like stores or flea markets and flipping them on Amazon for a profit. Jason also runs an online community to help people get started on Amazon over at Touring Freedom and a Facebook group with almost 3,000 members. He was recently featured in an article in a front page story of the Wall Street Journal, documenting his RV based business.
A few things we talk about on this episode:
- What is Fullfillment by Amazon (FBA) and what are the benefits of using it?
- What products should you start looking for when selling through FBA?
- Why this business is perfect for the RV lifestyle
- How much time should you put into an FBA business to make a full-time income on the road?
- And much more

Quotes from this episode:
“Yard sales are gold mines for finding books. You can walk away with a whole box of books for $3 or $4. Some of these books you can sell for $50 a piece.”
“A lot of the joy in this business is the treasure hunting aspect.”
“This business if great for RVers because you can bring in good income and you don’t have to hold inventory. You can travel from place to place looking for product and then ship from anywhere. It’s a completely location-free business.”
“If you want this business to pay you like a hobby, then treat it like a hobby. If you want this business to pay you like a business, then treat it like a business. The more hours you put in, the quicker you will grow.”
Thanks for Listening!
