ABOUT US: Full time RVers since 2014. We worked together as a sales and project management team for a national storm damage contractor in North Carolina, Texas, Georgia, New Mexico, and finally in Florida. In 2017, we settled in at a mobile home and RV resort in Pierson, FL and picked up the reins as assistant manager(s) of the RV and day-use portion of the resort when the managing couple retired and the park owner moved in to run the restaurant and mobile home park. We operated a small house flipping side business during that time. When the park sold in 2019, we moved on and returned to the storm business in Panama City after Hurricane Michael. In September 2020, we retired and Cathy took a work camper position at front desk at an RV resort in White Springs, FL, where we currently reside.
There is no contract, lease, or specific term of service here, and we are ready to move on with two weeks notice when the right location and position(s) become available.
