About the National RV Training Academy


The Facility

The 15,000 square-foot Big Red Schoolhouse & Community Center was constructed in 2017 for the dual purpose of teaching people how to maintain and repair RVs, as well as to provide a space for members of the surrounding community to hold events.

With climate controlled RV bays big enough to park multiple RVs in, the NRVTA has the room for all the equipment and tools that students need to get the hands-on training required to learn the systems on today's RVs.

The three large classrooms feature state-of-the-art equipment including projectors and video cameras connected to big screen televisions to ensure you don't miss a thing during class.

Even with all the space inside, we required outside storage for all the RV equipment, appliances and parts we keep on hand for students to take apart and learn with.

The Location

The Big Red Schoolhouse & Community Center, home of the NRVTA, is located on the grounds of the Texan RV Park in Athens, Texas.

The park contains 87 RV sites, 5 rental cabins, 2 Airbnb style rental cottages (tiny homes), Airbnb style rental trailers, and 3 small lakes that are well stocked with fish.  All of this is situated on 37.4 lush, green acres in beautiful East Texas.  The Texan RV Park provides a clean, comfortable and convenient place for our students to stay during the weeks of their class.

Although the training facility is located on the same property as the campground, there are no discounts for camping fees or lodging for NRVTA students.  Book your RV site now...
