Paul Hancock

Co-Founder/Co-Owner

After a long career in the IT industry, Paul Hancock founded We RV Champions with Michael Chapman in 2016. Prior to working in IT, Paul served 8 years on active duty in the United States Marine Corps.

As full-time RVers, Paul and his wife Shana are well-positioned to understand the needs of today’s RV community. With a desire to provide fellow RVers with a beautiful, safe, and relaxing camping experience, Paul and Michael purchased the first park in Tyler, Texas. Paul and Shana continue to play a hands-on role in managing their parks.

Michael Chapman

Michael Chapman has been in the high-tech sector for over 30 years. In 2016, he and Paul joined forces and created We RV Champions with the goal of owning several parks where they could use business acumen and customer service to meet the needs of the customers they serve.
