On this week’s show my guest is Todd Henson, director of sales and marketing at RV Inspections. Todd discusses the RV Inspection industry and all the benefits to consumers who have an RV inspection done before purchasing a pre- owned motor home or travel trailer. I also chat about all I learned at the latest Camper College at Beckley’s Camping Center in Thurmont, Md.
Upon discovering the Girl Camper movement, most women want in! Their next thought though is, “How?” How do I buy a trailer when I don’t know anything about RV’s? How do I know if my car can tow that trailer? How and where can I learn to tow? After a decade of promoting Girl Camping, I developed the Camper College program to help Girl Campers find those answers from trusted resources. Recently Go Little Guy Worldwide, the largest producer of teardrop trailers in the world and a proud sponsor of the Girl Camper Podcast, partnered with me to bring more Camper Colleges to more Girl Campers!
Go Little Guy knows their products are a great match for Girl Campers and they want to attract those buyers. Last year Haydocy Airstream in Columbus, Ohio reported that their sales of Tab trailers to Girl Campers reached 37%! The Girl Campers are a demographic in the RV world. They are on the verge of retirement with money to spend and they want safe, lightweight, reliable trailers that are stylish and functional.
Go a Little Guy reached out to their top dealers and encouraged them to host these free events to teach prospective campers what is involved in owning, operating and towing a travel trailer. Participating dealerships typically host the event after hours and their staffs walk the attendees through the trailers systems, demystifying trailer operations and thereby reducing purchase anxiety.
