2 Guys RV Education has presented at many venues including RV Shows, Dealer Sponsored Events, Lifestyle Events, Club Rallies, etc. The feedback has been extremely positive from attendees and event management, from first timers to full timers and everyone in between.
All of these seminars can be customized for specific events, in content and length from 20 minutes to 2 hours.
These seminars are targeted at the DIYer (do-it-yourself) as well as those RVers that prefer to have their RV dealer do all the work. Each attendee will get the simple troubleshooting roadmap and terminology to describe their problem to an expert thus shortening the time to repair and saving money.
New seminars are always a work-in-process as additional needs are identified and appropriate research is completed. So check with us if you do not see a seminar on your specific topic of interest.
