Hey! I'm Ross, "The RV Engineer!"

RVs can be a little scary, can’t they?

You’re handed the keys after a hurried 15-minute walk-through. Now you’re in charge of a factory-built home on wheels that experiences a hurricane and an earthquake every time you drive through a rainstorm.

As a designer and RV engineer, I get your frustration. My industry isn’t necessarily known for award-winning customer service, now is it?

This blog contains industry-insider information about how RVs work. Get your info straight from the horse’s mouth – er, or mine, anyway. You have a friend on the “inside” now!

Don't want to miss my latest?

Every month, I send out a monthly email newsletter.
