Action RV Action RV was founded in 1987 by Mark Podeyn, operating out of a re-purposed U-Haul truck. Podeyn serviced RV’s at campgrounds located in Albuquerque. The service business expanded by selling Featherlite trailers in 1989, later adding many other brands. Trailer sales flourished for several years reaching $7 million in annual revenues by 2007. In 2009, Action RV exited the trailer sales business and downsized its operation as a result of the crash of the economy. Action RV was eventually re-launched as a boutique RV trailer service and repair business. He also added an accessory, supply and repair parts store to compliment service offerings. The business now operates in Bosque Farms, located south of Albuquerque. Since the re-launch in 2011, Action RV has enjoyed year after year double digit net profit percentages. Podeyn credits the success of Action RV to a multi-faceted marketing strategy and a high-performance team that consistently delivers “expert results as promised, when promised.” Action RV Contact Name: Mark Podeyn 1100 Bosque Farms Blvd. Bosque Farms, NM 87068 505-294-1654 58 NATDA Magazine
