Road Warriors Unite at RV Entrepreneur Summit

Originally Published in Trailer Life Magazine

Full-time RVers share the secrets of their professional success at the annual RV Entrepreneur Summit.

Heath and Alyssa Padgett created the RV Entrepreneur Summit to address the personal, professional and financial needs of full-time RVers.

Every year in early spring, a group of adventurous RVers congregates to inspire one another as they build businesses on the road. In 2019, the RV Entrepreneur Summit convenes at Lake Guntersville State Park Campground in Guntersville, Alabama, March 21 through 24, providing speakers, workshops and activities for business creators and dreamers alike.

Brainchild of full-time RVers Heath and Alyssa Padgett, who also host the RV Entrepreneur Podcast, the event was created in 2017 to address a growing number of full-timers’ needs to network with others like themselves — road warriors who launch businesses that support their traveling lifestyles and achieve their personal and financial goals.

At the annual event, the Padgetts share how they make a living while traveling full time. The couple also hosts the RV Entrepreneur Podcast.

The event has grown from 120 attendees in its first year to an anticipated 300 in 2019, and yet the venue remains intimate and energizing. It gathers long-term RVers with first-timers and those just dreaming of a full-time lifestyle for an inspirational sharing of ideas, contacts, support and synergy.

Participants also manage to have a lot of fun along the way. In fact, many of them stick around for an extra week or two, finding it hard to leave this close-knit gathering of their “tribe.”

Standard passes to the 2019 conference are sold out, but some $300 tickets were available at the time of this writing. Full-hookup RV campsites are discounted to $20 per day for attendees. Virtual tickets granting access to video replays of stage talks and workshops are available for $100.
