Tony Rodgers is excited to bring RV Ready to the tri-state area, offering mobile RV maintenance and repair services. Rather than having a typical brick-and-mortar shop, Rodgers will work on location out of his truck, hoping to ease burdens encountered by RV owners. 

Rodgers has been a long-time RV owner and understands that a primary goal of owning and traveling in one of the vehicles is relaxation. He said trips could often be cut short, and unforeseen circumstances could force owners to go weeks or even months without their rig. 

“The concept of a mobile RV tech is a tremendous thought because when people are in them, they are typically at a place where they relax and enjoy themselves, but sure enough, something goes wrong,” Rodgers said. “If they don’t have access to a mobile tech, they may have to cut their journey short or go to a service center.”

He shared some experiences where an RV was under warranty and owners had to wait for an extended period due to part arrivals or backlogs. While he knows he can’t eliminate all of the nuisances associated with RV issues, his ultimate goal is to satisfy campers with prompt repairs, allowing them to continue on their journey. 

Rodgers is inching closer to becoming fully certified by the Recreational Vehicle Technician Association of America (RTVAA). He’s presently only working in areas that fall under his current certifications and is overwhelmed with the outpouring of support on social media. 

“I began with a soft start three to four weeks ago with a simple Facebook post, and I’ve already had several calls,” he said. “I’ll be fully certified in May.”

Rodgers added that his entire operation is centered around honesty and integrity. He’s adamant that RV services centers in the area view him as a colleague rather than a competitor because he said there would be several instances where he will refer clients to them due to the nature of the repair. 

“Trust and integrity are at the forefront of my operation – that’s how I’m stamped out,” Rodgers said. “There will be some issues that are beyond me, and I’ll let you know upfront and hopefully be able to guide you on where to go.”

Rodgers was born and raised in Campbellsville, but he and his wife have called Owensboro home for more than 40 years. He will be traveling to Texas in May to obtain the remaining certifications.

“My wife and I enjoy camping – I want to offer services even when traveling,” Rodgers said. “I want to help people when they need it. I have the knowledge and skills to help them; that’s a win-win for everyone.”
