Denton's RVshare Story
What do you do for a living?
I'm a business consultant.
Why did you decide to start renting your RV with RVshare?
To offset the monthly expenses plus depreciation and to see if I could generate enough income to purchase another RV to rent and use personally.
How long did it take for people to start inquiring on renting your RV?
Within days of posting my listing.
How many rentals have you booked so far?
About a dozen, with on being for a whole month.
What’s the total amount of money those rentals added up to?
Close to $68,000.
What were you expecting singing up for RVshare?
Not high, I just want to try and rent a couple of weeks a year. But it turned out to renting all summer and even in the winter.
What concerns did you have about renting your RV?
Just how would the RV be treated and kept clean.
What would you say to someone else who’s considering renting their RV on RVshare?
Follow up with each inquiry and have a good contract that explains all costs and how the deposits are handled before and after the rental. Have notes that they can read while on the trip. Tell them your expectations up front so there's no misunderstanding if a problem arises.
Is there anything else you would like other RV owners to know?
Have your RV located in a handy place for them to pickup and drop off with parking in case they need to leave a car. I have had most renters drive in from out of state to pickup.
What are the biggest benefits of renting your RV?
The cash-flow and meeting people from all over the Midwest.
From the first day of listing I had people inquiring on my RV, and I quickly booked my first four rentals. The best part is the extra income and seeing the happy families, especially with kids!See More
Mostly I wanted to offset the cost of owning my RV so that I could keep it. I would highly recommend doing this. I have so enjoyed meeting the people who have rented my RV and feel as if they are now friends.See More
I had interested renters within one week, and in no time I had made $3,500 off of four rentals. Using RVshare makes my RV payment and provides me with additional extra income.See More
I decided to start renting to RVshare because I wanted to increase our family income while paying down the debt on the camper. I get inquiries every day! Share your RV, share the love!See More
I am retired and I figured I could make money and pay off my motorhome, and give someone the enjoyment of being able to rent a RV. I started getting inquiries immediately! I've made about $10,000 so far.See More
Initially I thought let's post and see what happens--after all it is free to create your listing. Then the requests started coming in and they have not stopped. I’ve already made $10,000 and counting.See More
I wanted to make money so that I could keep my RV, and I have. I made $12,200 in 2015 and $7,300 already in 2016! The biggest benefits are the money and the people I meet. Go ahead and try it! It's worked really well for me! I love it!See More
My trailer was not being used as frequently as I would have liked. So we considered selling, however with no bites except for the low-ball offers I was looking for an alternative to selling.See More
