I'd rather put money in the pocket of a fellow RVer than a business I don't know JMO

My advice:
you will make more money sharpening sisors;

I met a man that did that in a campground and he was always busy.
And you don't need near as many the tools.
Everyone has dull sisors.
He only charged a dollar, but he had the volume and it didn't take him long to sharpen a pare of sisors.

You might find campground owners and managers favorable if you talk to them first, and offer them the opportunity to provide a service to their rv-ers (like over a week-end). That way, it comes from them. You provide the fliers for the bulletin board.

And don't forget the tax advantages of operating your business, while on the road (they are many).

Best of luck.

Your post reminded me of the Monty Python sketch where everyone was dressed like Superman and one character gets a call to do a bike repair and he goes into a phone booth and changes clothes to become "Bicycle Repairman"

Well. I don't advertise but ... I can do chain saws and drill bits.

I could likely do scissors too but I really need a better sharpener for those.

Do you remember if he sharpened them by hand with stones or if he had a sharpening machine (grinder)?

He had a tool that I thought was a grinder; took him about two minutes to sharpen a pare of sisors, did a realy good job.
