MBA Insurance will hold the 14th MBA RV Rental School Feb. 24-26 at the Tuscany Hotel and Resort in Las Vegas. According to a press release, the event represents the “only motorhome- and trailer-specific rental school nationally, tailored to meet the needs of the dealers and individuals planning on starting a rental business.”
“We have students that come from all backgrounds and levels of RV rental experience,” said Bert Alanko, president of MBA Insurance and sponsor of the RV Rental School. “Some have been in the rental business for years and just want to learn some new stuff. Others have never been in the rental business and are just trying to figure it all out.
“What you can expect the school to provide is an understanding of what you should do to be successful in the rental business. Our instructors have been in the rental business for 20 years or more. They are successful and will share their knowledge of what it takes to achieve a profitable rental operation.”
Barry Raye, owner of 84 RV rentals in New Jersey, has been added to the staff this year while Scott Krenek, owner of Krenek RV Super Center in Coloma, Mich., and Martin Onken, owner of Expedition RV Rentals, Calabasas, Calif., return to the school. Each instructor offers a different emphasis in the market segment, including motorhomes, trailers and the leaseback concept.
Every dealership attending will receive an MBA RV Rental manual and three full days of discussion. “We will provide breakfasts, lunches and a terrific cocktail party,” Alanko said. “There will be plenty of time for networking and individual questions as the format is kept very interactive – purposely so. We all learn from each other and the school is truly a great experience. We have had some dealers attend multiple times.”
For those wishing to attend registration is now open and available at http://www.rentalschool.com/. The cost remains the same as in previous years and hotel room rates are reasonable.
