On this week’s episode of RV Family Travel Atlas, we are talking about an emerging trend: peer-to-peer RV rentals.
Many people have used more traditional rentals such as Cruise America, El Monte, or Road Bear RV to explore the RV lifestyle or take that one bucket list trip across country.
Peer-to-peer RV rentals put a a twist on this model, offering benefits for both the renter and owner.
People who are considering a first time purchase might rent to decide between a travel trailer or motor home. On the other hand, an experienced RV enthusiast might try out a new rig they are considering. Or maybe you want a bigger motor home for that one big trip down to Disney Land.
Owners can use this model to offset the costs of RV ownership and maybe even bulk up their own RV vacation budget. For many people, the RV spends more time in the driveway than it does at a campground, so this may be a great financial opportunity if you have the right rig in the right location.
We interviewed Jen Young, the co-founder of Outdoorsy, to find out more about this exciting new option. Listen to hear Jen describe the ins and outs from both the renter’s and owner’s perspective.
You may say you would never let anyone else tow your precious rig into the great outdoors. But we are seriously considering making our travel trailer start earning its keep around these parts.
