“We have done so much, with so little, for so long, we are now qualified to do anything, with nothing.”

—Mother Teresa



Jeannine PataneJeannine Patané is the founder of RV Compass, a RV-related event management and publishing company. As a fulltimer in a 13’ travel trailer, she is fervent to strengthen her RV community.

Her early years of event coordination involved stage management for several shows in the entertainment industry. She then gravitated towards the graphic arts as production manager for an international magazine.

Jeannine founded a home improvement business, Alaska HandyWoman, after building her Interior Alaska cabin.

Within a few years she left her cabin behind and took her trade work on the road for multinational clientele. This included yacht work in the maritime industry and vessel deliveries. She views anything she manages as a production.

After her Alaska departure—and a freespirited decade of globetrotting with only a backpack in tow—Jeannine upscaled fulltime into a travel trailer immediately upon acquisition in 2014. Managing a rally is a natural fit to her organized and creative talents.

“Rallies are two-fold. The events bring the RV community together for education, entertainment and support, and it’s a great opportunity for manufacturers, dealers and suppliers to understand their market better.”

As an intrinsic nomad and artist, her worldly travels and experiences are simply expressed in an efficient molded fiberglass trailer. Although she frequently haunts the Southern Outer Banks of North Carolina, her trailer has no limits to where it can be taken and that range includes family and community around the world.

Jeannine's style of social networking only requires a campfire, nearby post office, flip phone and tires ready to roll. Shiny up, rubber down. Fish on.
