Although it might seem like an unnecessary formality, your RV appliance service and repair company's business plan is a document that will shape your goals and strategies on a go-forward basis.
If that's not enough, consider that business plans inoculate your business from common startup mistakes. While other startup RV appliance service and repair businesses are floundering, your business will be on course for growth and profits, protected by a carefully conceived plan that reflects real world business conditions and your business's unique characteristics.

Talk to People Who Are Already in the Business
As part of your due diligence on opening a RV appliance service and repair business, it's a wise move to learn as much as you can from somebody who is already in the business. It's very unlikely that the local competition will talk to you. What's in it for them?
On the other hand, an individual who has a RV appliance service and repair business outside of your community will be much more likely to talk with you, provided that you won't be directly competing with them. In fact, they are often very willing to share startup advice with you. In my experience, you may have to call ten business owners in order to find one who is willing to share his wisdom with you.

Acquisitions vs. Startups
There is a lot of debate about whether it's better to start a new RV appliance service and repair business or acquire a RV appliance service and repair business on the business-for-sale marketplace.
Both ownership strategies have their benefits and drawbacks. For first-time business owners, it makes more sense to buy an existing RV appliance service and repair business than to attempt to build one from the ground up.
An acquired RV appliance service and repair business is a known quantity; a startup is less certain because its forecasts depend on estimated outcomes. In a best case scenario, you'll be able to locate a turnkey operation with proven profitability and a well oiled business model.
Consider Buying a Franchise
Your chances for growing your business are much better if you buy a franchise rather than going it alone.
