N.M. Retailer Mines Used Motorhome Market
After almost two decades selling cars, Larry Kirk decided he wanted to chase his passion.
“I was tired of selling cars,” he said. “I wanted an RV and I’m a workaholic and I figured if I wanted to enjoy myself and what I was selling, I better get busy selling them.”
Thus about 10 or 12 years ago, Desert RV in Albuquerque, N.M., came to be.
“I wanted a fresh operation,” Kirk said.
According to the Albuquerque Journal, rather than delve into the market of new RVs, which entails a lot of capital, Kirk found a relatively open niche for used motor homes, which is all he sells.
“Trailers are too much of a chore,” Kirk said. “To me they’re aggravating. I really love motor homes. I’ve always enjoyed them.”
Because it’s a fairly specialized market, he buys most of his vehicles, and – thanks to the Internet – sells them all over the country.
