Xantrex releases RV Geeks case study

BURNABY, British Columbia — Peter and John, who originally hail from the East Coast are known more commonly as “The RVgeeks,” who describe themselves as “just a couple of guys trying to help other RVers tackle repair, maintainence, and upgrade projects on their own — an organic evolution of our own experiences RVing.”

Approximately 13 years ago they sold everything and left their high paying, financially stable jobs for a life on the road. Never having spent even a single night in an RV before, they bought a 2002 39-foot Fleetwood Bounder Diesel online and flew down to California to pick it up.

They had a initial plan of living off their savings for a few years and eventually finding a nice place to settle down but after a few years on the road, they fell in love with being full time RVers and “it turned out that nowhere was the right place, and everywhere was perfect.”

To enable them to keep on themselves on the road full-time, they combined their skills and began creating websites for RV parks they would visit along their journey. As their skillset grew, so did their business model, incorporating many DIY videos on their YouTube channel specifically for RVers.

The videos initially started out with a tutorial meant to help a friend/fellow RVer and has since taken on a life of it’s own with almost 20 million views and no signs of slowing down.

Xantrex released a case study about the RV Geeks that  describes how they maintain their life and business on the road with the help of the company’s Freedom SW inverter/charger.
