Why Start an RV Business?

Don’t get me wrong, RVing can be a full-time job. But you may also find yourself with a lot of free time, or you may be low on funds at some point during a trip.

Here are a few reasons why you should look into starting a business from your RV:

  • You can work from anywhere. If your business is online, you’re only limited by a laptop and internet connection.
  • There is unlimited scenery, opportunity, and networking. Your business is on the move and can network wherever it goes. It can also advertise for free if you use the RV as a billboard.
  • There are low start-up costs. It costs less to convert an RV into an office than renting an office space.
