As consumers increasingly rely on social media for travel and lifestyle research, Volta Power Systems has partnered with vanlife influencer Scott Watson of Go Small Live Large to serve as a brand ambassador. Watson will leverage his personal knowledge and experience with his Type B RV’s Volta lithium-ion system to educate both RV dealers and enthusiasts about the benefits of RVs with advanced energy systems.
“Scott’s incredibly well-respected and in-touch with the vanlife community, and his Volta experience represents an ideal use-case of how RVers can get the most out of their Volta system,” said Jack Johnson, CEO of Volta Power Systems. “With the rise in RV travel, dealers need the knowledge to educate potential buyers on how they can achieve the best possible RVing experience.”
The ongoing nationwide lockdowns have sparked wide-spread acceptance and increased participation of the vanlife movement. Many who have joined are first-time/inexperienced RVers with little preparation or idea of what to expect, including what kind of power is necessary to power basic comforts without being tethered to shore power.
Watson, a YouTuber in the vanlife community, lives fulltime in his Winnebago Travato GL. His followers include fellow Winnebago users, travel van owners and aspirational RVers interested in learning more about life on the road. As Volta’s brand ambassador, Watson will visit Winnebago dealers across the U.S. and teach employees about Volta systems’ benefits and uses. He will also host rallies and meet-ups for local “vanlifers” and RV enthusiasts following the training sessions.
“Go Small Live Large is all about empowering people to change their lives, being passionate about life on the road and experiencing total freedom in a way they probably never have,” Watson said. “Having a Volta system on my van has been an absolute game-changer for me, and I’m passionate about sharing that experience with other people. New RV-buyers often rely on their salesperson for expertise in making a buying decision, so equipping dealers with the information they need is a top priority.”
