As the COVID-19 concerns continue, especially while traveling, cleaning has become a huge concern. Many owners already include a cleaning fee, or provide coverage in their own professional cleaning.
Here you can follow the recommended CDC guidelines and learn how you can keep your RV clean while renting to others.
If you would like to add a cleaning fee onto your listing, you can do so by going to your RVshare Owner Dashboard > Listings > Edit Listing > Rates

It all starts with your Dashboard and Listing page. Visit your Dashboard today to ensure your calendar is up to date, the RV Listing has a thorough and eye-catching description and photos, your fees are added, and all your settings are completed and saved.
