RV Education 101 Creator Urges People to 'Just RV It!'
Much akin to the famous Nike slogan “Just Do It,” Mark Polk, owner of RV Education 101, says, he hopes his company's new slogan “Just RV It” will quickly catch on among RV enthusiasts.
“We purchase RVs to go on adventures, explore the country and to build lasting memories with our family and friends," he explained in a news release. "Too often our dreams of traveling in our RV get pushed aside because of busy schedules, work and a lack of prior planning.”
Polk aims at helping RVers learn more about how to enjoy RVing. Polk created a new website, RVConsumer.com, which is full of information such as free checklists, camping resources, a place to share stories, pictures and much more to enhance the full RV experience.
“It doesn’t matter if you take an overnight trip 20 miles away from home or a 1,000-mile, week-long RV adventure, the important thing is you just RV it,” he said.
Polk’s advice is to plan your RV trips. “Lots of folks buy an RV only to not use it very often. It’s sad to see the enthusiasm and expectations people have for traveling in their RV diminish to it sitting idle in the driveway for extended periods of time," said Polk. "I am sure owners have many valid reasons for not using the RV like the weather, lack of funds and time constraints. But it is my belief that the real culprit is a lack of planning. I would like to help get that excitement back."
"Remember the 5 Ps — Proper Planning Prevents Poor Performance. When you plan a trip you take a trip, even if it’s just for a quick weekend getaway. I really do believe it’s that simple,” he said.
He went on to explain that planning an RV trip in advance solves all the reasons people come up with as to why they should not use the RV.
“When you pencil-in a date on the calendar, you set aside a block of time to use the RV," said Polk. "Planning an RV trip in advance gives you time to budget money for the trip and to make any necessary arrangements to go on the trip.
“Don’t give up on your dreams of exploring the country in your RV; instead plan to make your dreams come true," he added. "You worked hard to buy the RV, now you need to work just as hard on enjoying your RV. Plan your RV trip, load it up, hook it up, fuel it up and 'Just RV It!'”
