It’s here! It’s here! It’s the week of our RV Entrepreneur Summit!
This week is one of our favorite’s of the year and while the conference doesn’t officially kick off until Thursday, it’s already been a blast!
We’ve got a co-working space and pre-Summit events sponsored by Xscapers. Plus spontaneous hot tub hangs and lots of work collaborations.
When we first started RVing, we had no community on the road. We didn’t know any other RVers and we never met any full-timers who actually worked while the traveled. That first year on the road was so lonely, we moved our RV back to Texas for a while so we could be around friends and family.
But slowly we started discovering more and more young RVers through our blog. With the launch of Heath’s podcast in 2016, we discovered our people: RV entrepreneurs. Those crazy kids—ages 13 to 73—who want to run a business and travel full-time. This week 250 of them are coming together for our second annual RV Entrepreneur Summit!
Tickets are sold out, but you can still tune in online!
