Profiles of RV-Based Businesses 

 

More and more RV full-timers are starting RV-based businesses.  If you’re thinking about becoming an RV-based entrepreneur ( I call them entrebumneurs) and running a small business from an RV, you’ll be in good company.  On this page you will find a few profiles of RV-based businesses and their owners.

If you are already an entrebumneur, please fill out the Profiles Of RV-based Businesses form (below) and tell us about your business.  If possible, please include a photo or two of you with your RV and a Photo showing you “at work”.

I would like to see this page become the source of a directory where we can easily find RV-based businesses and support them.  By “support” I mean buy their products, use their services, and whenever appropriate, promote them with positive word-of-mouth advertising.

Here is a link with examples of RV-based shops.

Hard Goods:

Louvieve is an RV-based business owned by Lynne Lowe.  "All natural, handcrafted soaps, soaks, salts, scrubs."  I'm a regular customer...good stuff.

This is my (RV Beachbum) medical discount card RV-based business.  It's a great way to save money on prescription drugs.  And pet meds too.  The cards are FREE and there is no enrollment required.  Just go to the website and print out your card.  You can print as many as you want to hand out to family, friends, coworkers, church members, etc..  Give them to anyone who would like to save money on their prescriptions.  The website has a ton of other useful info as well.    Check it out.  You'll be impressed.  And it's FREE!

BTW, for you RVers  looking for an RV-based business idea, go to the website and click on the "Become An Agent" button for more info.  I think this is a great business to build out of an RV.  That's why I decided to do it!  Take a look for yourself.
