Wheel Estate entrepreneurs talk share business concept

CANADA — It took Chad and Cherie Ball of Wheel Estate years to get their business on the road, but they refused to abandon their dreams, reported Troy Media.

Calgary’s Business: What is Wheel Estate and how did the company come into being?

Chad and Cherie: Wheel Estate is a peer-to-peer RV trailer sharing marketplace. We efficiently connect people who would like to rent a travel trailer with owners whose trailer would otherwise go unused, backing each reservation with our $1-million insurance policy.

Our story begins in 2008 and like many Canadians our family was hit hard with the recession that year, and by 2010 we found ourselves struggling to make ends meet.

When it came time to take a much-needed family vacation, there were few options we could afford, so we thought: why not go camping? That’s cheap, right?
