Podcast 164 features Bob Zagami

Bob Zagami

Episode 164 starts with an analysis of the new WAZE Consumer Satisfaction Index listing the Top 10 Best and Worst Cities for Driving in America. Surprisingly, podcast host Greg Gerber had driven through most of them.

This week’s guest is Bob Zagami, the executive director of the New England RV Dealers Association.

Zagami started in the industry as a part-time freelance journalist for RV News back in the 1990s. He is extremely opinionated, but almost always right. He’s blunt, but knows his stuff.

He is also the founder of RV Insights, which helps dealers and other RV-related companies craft video and written messages. He and his wife, Mae, spend their summers living in a park model RV up in Maine.

Zagami comes on the show to talk about his experience at this year’s National RV Trade Show, and then addresses problems surrounding tech training at dealerships and finally offers predictions on the direction of the RV industry in general.

People in the New England area can meet Zagami personally at the 2018 Boston RV and Camping Expo, which takes place Jan 12 to 15 at the Boston Convention and Expo Center. You can find more information at www.bostonrvexpo.com.

    Greg I like many of your podcast as you know but if your having Bob Zagami why would you waste all that time in the intro about traffic in other cities, I was screaming in my mind ( MOVE ON PLEASE). I to like Bob’s incites and wish he had had more time. Also I’m not sure your meaning of a three-peat for Bob but he had already been on the podcast three times prior #5,73,100. Also could you get Mark and Dawn back on? Merry Christmas
