He dominated a niche portion of the entertainment industry off the screen. He created a company (Star Waggons) that rented customized motor home and RV trailer dressing rooms.

You are correct. I remember hearing about that listening to a Carol Burnett interview. He used to buy up old set pieces from the show and use them to help create trailers.
