Matt and Kristina, the proud owners of Fireside RV rental in Mesa, Arizona, embarked on a new journey entering the RV rental industry. Prior to starting this business, Matt was an electrician for 20 years. He worked many, many hours during those electrical years while Kristina did a lot of jobs at home. She was a stay-at-home mom also did lashes and other cosmetology things just to make ends meet. During those years, Matt struggled with personal challenges, including alcoholism, but in January 2019, he made the decision to change his life. He sought help in rehab and found solace in his faith.
