We have been covering the impending population jump in Scurry County thanks to the oil boom.

Well, one man who moved from the Dallas area to Snyder on the advice of friends and the oil business is not regretting his decision.

He opened a travel trailer business and has only been open for three months, but is already making his office bigger and hiring more people.

"Some people that we know from Fort Worth who are in the oil business told us that Snyder was going to be the next Midland/ Odessa," says owner Steve Pace. "So, we picked up and brought a bunch of RVs out here, and we rolled the dice, and we've been happy ever since."

Open since just the beginning of the year, Pace told us he's turned over his inventory nearly three times.
