The guests this week are relative newcomers to the RV Industry. Steve Maldonado is the owner of Soul Ride Scooters, which is based in Santa Barbara, Calif. He is joined by Jason Edwards, the chief financial officer and co-owner of the company.
Soul Ride produces a unique line of motorized scooters that fold up to the size of a bag of golf clubs and easily fit in an RV compartment or a vehicle trunk.
The scooters travel at 15 mph for 22 to 28 miles and recharge in just three or four hours. The scooters weigh 50 pounds, but can accommodate passengers up to 400 pounds.
The guys come on the show to tell the story about how the company was founded and what makes their scooters so popular.
They also describe the features and benefits of being a retail outlet for the scooters and outline what could be a profitable rental program for RV dealers can campgrounds alike.
There are a few videos online that people can watch to see the scooters n operation.
The scooters could very easily be popular rentals at RV parks and campgrounds and, like one of the guys said, a scooter could even be used to sweeten the deal when buying a new RV.
Soul Ride Scooters are considerably less expensive than electric bikes, and with a basket on front, could easily be used to shuttle to and from activities at a campground. They park just like bikes and work on paved and dirt trails.
