SBDC @ New Mexico State University - Carlsbad

Joshua Moore is the owner of AOK RV Retreat, LLC. Moore wanted to provide an affordable solution for Carlsbad area workers and citizens most adversely affected by the housing shortage. AOK RV Retreat, LLC was launched in 2016 to meet the needs of this unique market.

Joshua Moore approached the SBDC Carlsbad in the Fall of 2015 for assistance in implementing his strategy “providing affordable solutions” to build AOK RV Getaway, LLC. The facility would service vacationing travelers and migrant workers short-term, mid-term, and long-term solutions for this very real problem in the Carlsbad, Eddy County area. With meticulous attention to detail, Josh Moore strategically acquired the land, permits, aligned the contractors, and then invested his life savings. Moore's  determination, strategic business acumen, and precision execution brought such a prime economic base opportunity to Carlsbad, New Mexico.

AOK RV Getaway is a massive, full hook-up, 99 site (30, 50, and 100 Amp) RV Park with amenities and full accessibility located only 4 miles from downtown Carlsbad New Mexico. Moore's vision of employing six to eight full-time staff will prove to be a critical asset to AOK RV and provide a strong economic base for Eddy County.

Joshua states “The SBDC at NMSU Carlsbad was instrumental in helping us navigate the minutia and emerge successfully."
