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.
