A BRITISH businessman has told how he rakes in a fortune renting out huge American motorhomes to Brits more than willing to splash the cash.
Rob Fawcett charges up to £5,000 for a weekend inside one of his eleven luxury “hotels on wheels”.
His firm, Northamptonshire-based RJF Motorhomes, make a killing hiring out their US-imported ‘fifth wheels’ to Brits who book the RV’s for weekends at motor circuits and festivals.
He told Channel 5’s Millionaire Motor Homes show: “Summer? I call it silly season.
“It’s where you get the majority of your income.”
The programme – which aired on Sunday night – showed off the epic Wildwood Heritage Glen 378FL.
The American beast offers guests a luxury mobile suite spread over two levels and sleeps four adults comfortably.
Walking into the magnificent trailer a state-of-the-art kitchen boasts a large cooker, fridge, sink and large dining table.
Next door is a lounge which has a whopping 50 inch satellite flat screen TV and electric fireplace.
Three comfy leather sofas offer a place to chill out and double as beds.
Incredibly the lounge sits on a genius sliding system which allows compartments to magically extend outwards, trebling the size of the RV.
“Within a very short space of time, you’ve got a house!”, Rob quips.
A king-sized bedroom is located at the other end of the trailer with a dresser, TV and a panoramic window.
A small set of stairs then takes the guests to a twin room in the loft.
A bathroom with a walk-in shower, porcelain toilet and sink finish off the epic American trailer.
Elsewhere in his fleet are beasts that can sleep up to eight people comfortably.
Rob delivers the caravans himself, often to punters at racetracks and motor circuits up and down the country.
He even delivers to Glastonbury, telling the show its “a nightmare” getting into the world-renowned Somerset festival because of the single-track roads.
Rob even modifies the American RV’s to suit English tastes, such as changing the work tops and and putting tea mugs in for Brits that love a brew.
The trailer is then “presented” to punters – with towels, a stocked fridge and posh soaps in the bathrooms to add that luxurious finish.
And he even puts a point on the toilet rolls for that added taste of the highlife.
