Having a completed & polished profile makes it easier for members with similar lifestyles and interests to connect with you. Here's how to make sure your profile is looking it's best...
1. Log into your account.
2. Click on the "little man" icon between the bell and the envelope in the black bar across the top of the site.
3. Select "Edit My Profile"
First things first! Put up a profile Photo.
Adding your logo as your profile photo will let members know that your account is being managed by a real person and it looks professional. Simply click the tab that says "Edit My Photo".
- Click "Choose File" to select the image you want to use as your profile photo.
- Once you've selected the image you want to use, it will show in the "Current Photo" box. This is the image others will see when they visit your profile.
- Below the "Current Photo" image, you will see a smaller image. This is the thumbnail image that will be seen on feeds you post in. You can edit which portion of the "Current Photo" is used for your thumbnail by clicking "Edit Thumbnail".
- Use the small squares at the corners of the edit box to make it larger or smaller as you drag it over the image to choose exactly what you want your thumbnail to look like.
- When you have it the way you want it, click "Apply Changes".
- If the image isn't facing the direction you'd like it to face, use the "Rotate Photo" options to flip it to the correct direction and click the "x".
- Once your "Current Photo" and "Thumbnail" photo are just the way you want it, click "Save Photo".
Next, let's personalize your profile!
Simply scroll back to the top of the screen and click the "About Me" tab. Here, you have many ways to share some info about who you are.
- Enter your current mission. This could be something like, "Providing our customers with excellent customer service".
- Select an age range. You can select all of them to let others know you serve all ages. Or, you can leave this blank.
- List your title or your business name & city as your current or past occupation.
- You can leave the "veteran" status blank.
- Choosing how often you RV is required, so just select "full time"
- You can choose the date your business was established for the "RVing Since" question.
- Since most businesses will not be affiliated with the RVing clubs, you can skip selecting any of those.
- Tell everyone a little bit about your business. It can be short & sweet or a few paragraphs. You can include your physical address, phone numbers, email address, etc.
- If you'd like to add an image to your "About Me" description you can do so like this...
a. Place your cursor where you want your image to appear. Click the "Add Image" icon.
b. Copy the URL address where the image you want to add is located and paste it into the "Source" field. Click your "Tab" key so the dimensions are automatically added. Click "OK".
- In the "Current Travel Plans" area, you may want to add your tagline.
- Since this is a business account, you can skip the Kids and Pets section.
- You have to select at least one interest, so a good one to choose for businesses is "shopping" or "Gold Level Members".
- Use the "Interests" area to add some keywords for your business followed by a comma.
- Add your website, blog, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Instagram, and Pinterest URL link.
- Click "Save Changes".
It's time to claim your personalized RVillage URL link!

My Rig tab.
If your business is an RV dealership, maybe you would like to ad a pic of some inventory here. Otherwise, you may want to just add your logo or leave it undone. It's up to you. Simply scroll back to the top of the screen and select "My Rig".
- If you want to add an image here, click the "Choose File" button to select the image you want to use.
