Anyone who has ever rented out their personal RV knows that it can be very time consuming. The process includes insuring your RV, cleaning it, messaging with potential renters, checking it out, supporting renters on the road, checking it back in… and even potentially delivering the RV to a specific location. All in all, the time spent getting and fulfilling a booking takes work.
What if there was a way to avoid all this effort and still make money? How much time would that free up and how many headaches and hassles would it avoid?
Well, there is a solution! It’s called RV rental management. Like a vacation rental property manager, RV rental management takes care of everything related to renting out your RV. All you need to do is hand over the keys to an RV rental management company, answer a few questions here and there, and you’re on your way to sitting back and collecting checks!
What Do Real Owners Have to Say?
“My husband and I were interested in renting out our RV but didn’t have the bandwidth to do it because we both work full-time and are raising two boys. When we heard about RV rental management, we got excited. It seemed like the perfect solution,” exclaimed Amber Park, a Class C RV Owner and goHomePort Rentals customer. “Since we signed up with our RV management company goHomePortRentals, we don’t feel guilty about not using our RV and having it just sit there. It gets rented and we don’t have to do anything.”
RV rental management is also perfect for people who are tired of acting as RV rental middlemen. “We spent a year renting our three RVs ourselves, but discovered that the effort and time to clean, maintain, and help renters was constant. We had to be available 24/7,” said Bill Humphrey of Louisville, CO. “It was so time consuming that we were ready to sell our RVs until we found goHomePort Rentals, the RV management company we use. They have taken over the day-to-day job of renting out our units and now we make money stress-free.”
Another benefit of RV rental management is that it poses little financial risk. These companies work off commission and only make money when they rent your RV. They can also kickstart your rental earnings. They’ve been around the block and know how to get you started quickly.
Other RV owners like RV rental management programs because they stay on top of maintenance so you know your RV will always be in top shape when you’re ready to use it.
Renting out your RV offers great tax benefits. You can write off any expenses related to renting, including furnishings, repairs, upgrades, and more. You can also depreciate your vehicle over a period of years. Talk to you accountant.
In summary, the main benefits of using an RV rental management company are:
- You don’t have to do any work: sign up with the RV rental management company and they do the work for you
- You’ll have fewer hassles and headaches: RV rental managers deal with all the tough stuff, so you don’t have to
- Your RV will be well-maintained: most management companies offer basic cleaning and maintenance in their services
- You’ll make more money: experienced managers know how to price your RV to maximize earnings
