How to Make Money Renting Out My RV
Making money by renting out your RV on RVshare is simple. Start by creating a listing on RVshare, set the dates your RV is available to be rented, decide on the price and any fees, and upload some photos of your rig. Step-by-step prompts will help you set up your listing, and you’ll have full control over everything – including your cancelation policy, how much to charge, and who you rent to.
RVshare is free to join and we don’t charge a fee to create a listing. Instead of a listing fee, you’ll pay a small commission fee only when your rig is booked. The commission pays for things like access to the RVshare platform, secure payment processing and direct deposit, marketing your RV listing, and a dedicated support team for both owners and renters.

How Much Money Can I Make Renting My RV?
So what kind of income are we looking at? Well, how much money you make renting your RV will depend on a few factors such as the type of rig, how new it is, where you’re located, and how often you rent it out. RVshare owners can easily make anywhere from $10,000 up to $40,000 a year in extra income by renting out their RVs when they’re not being used. Some of our members have even turned renting RVs into a full-time business. Here’s a breakdown of the average amount you could make based on the type of RV you’re renting.
Class A Motorhome
Class As are a great option for renters who are looking for space, are planning a lengthy trip, or who have larger families. RVshare users who list their Class A Motorhomes for rent can make up to $60,000 per year.
Class B Camping Van
Van life is becoming an even bigger trend, and these small and easily maneuverable rigs are popular with people who want an easy driving experience. Listing your Class B camping van on RVshare could make you up to $30,000 in extra income per year.
Class C Motor Home
Class C motor homes are the perfect mix of giant Class As and tiny vans. They’re a great choice for renters who don’t have a tow vehicle, but aren’t ready to drive a lengthy Class A motor home. Class C motor homes could bring in up to $38,000 per year when you rent them on RVshare.
Fifth wheels give RVers more room with the extra space which hangs over the bed of the truck that pulls it. It’s both a great use of space and works toward reducing the overall length of your tow vehicle and RV set up. Renting your fifth wheel on RVshare could bring you an extra $22,000 per year.
Travel trailers come in a variety of lengths and sizes, making them extremely flexible and appealing to renters. Rvshare users who list their travel trailers can make up to $22,000 per year in extra income.
Toy haulers are similar to travel trailers, but the wide back openings and built in ramps make these perfect for loading and bringing your toys with you on a trip. And renting your toy hauler to others could bring in up to $22,000 a year on RVshare.
Pop Up Camper
Low profile and easy to tow, pop up campers are great for renters who aren’t quite ready to commit to larger RVs. Rent yours when you’re not using it and you could earn up to $22,000 in extra income.
