[Holland, MI – 08/19/20] – As consumers increasingly rely on social media influencers 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 Class B RV’s Volta lithium-ion system to educate both RV dealers and enthusiasts about the benefits of RVs with advanced energy systems.

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’ end-user benefits and uses. He’ll 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.”

RVing in a Pandemic

The ongoing nationwide lockdowns have sparked wide-spread acceptance and increased participation of the vanlife movement. This means a greater number of inexperienced RV drivers are hitting the roads 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.

Volta’s NMC lithium-ion power storage systems provide higher energy density than the LFP lithium-ion systems on the market while taking up less space and reducing the system’s weight. Volta’s automotive-grade lithium-ion technology allows users to take all their favorite comforts, like A/C all day or night, on the road with them without needing noisy fuel-run generators. The systems recharge via the alternator integrated into the vehicle’s engine, which charges systems while on the road and eliminates the need for shore power.

“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.”
