Successful RV rental school prompts RVDA mini school

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. — The 16th Annual MBA RV Rental School was a huge success when it took place March 1 to 3 at the Tuscany Suites and Casino in Las Vegas, said Bert Alanko, president of MBA Insurance and founder of the school.

A total of 89 students attended the training session and, yet, 24 people remained on the waiting list.

“We had very new rental dealers attend the class along with one who said he has been in the business 10 years and wished he had attended earlier,” said Alanko.

Instructors Barry Raye, Scott Krenek and Martin Onken, as well as MBA’s attorney for rental law, Leslie Pujo, did an excellent job, he added.

“It is amazing the positive comments and suggestions that we received about the school in the evaluations students completed,” said Alanko.

Each day, the class discussion went so well that the sessions wound up in overtime, he noted, adding that the last day ran two hours over schedule due to the thirst for the presenters’ knowledge and information.

The 2016 MBA RV Rental School takes place Feb. 7 to 9 also at the Tuscany Suites and Casino in Las Vegas. More information will be provided this fall.

Due to the success of the rental school and the unprecedented waiting list, Alanko said MBA will again host a mini RVRA/MBA Rental School later this year during the RV Dealers Association convention and expo, which is scheduled for Nov. 7 to 11 in Las Vegas. Details will be released later this summer.
