Peer-to-peer camper sharing is becoming more and more popular. Lots of people own campers. And many want to rent one. Some want to hit the open road. Others want to visit. People have heard of VRBO and AirBnB but did you know there are a few websites that work to match those who have campers and those who want to borrow? The following sites bring the two together to create the perfect relationship.
Over 200,000 people use outdoorsy.com to rent campers. Focused in North America, it is free to sign up on their website. Moreover, they have 24/7 roadside assistance and offer great rates on fully insured rentals.
For Canadians, rvezy.com is a place folks can rent campers ranging from fully luxurious RVs to tent trailers. It’s free to sign up and is a great way to earn some extra money if you have a unit to lend out.
Another new site for Canadians, wheelestate.ca offers free listings, insurance coverage and 24/7 roadside assistance. They’ve even partnered with Discount Car and Truck Rental for those without a tow vehicle.
Shareacamper.co.nz is a campervan rental site located in New Zealand. No cookie cutter campers here. They love their unique campervans. 24/7 roadside assistance together with insurance will provide both sides peace of mind.
You can “stay”, “play” or “park it” with trailermade.co. “Stay” will put you in touch with an owner who has a unit in a permanent location. “Play” will allow you to take a trailer wherever you’d like. “Park it” will connect you with someone who has a piece of land, camp site or driveway you can utilize.
Of course you can also find trailers and campers on airbnb.com. Located in 191 countries, it is still one of the largest peer-to-peer homestay networks with hundreds of campers listed for rent.
Camper Connect is a global campervan listing site providing access to many campers for hire in the UK, United States, Spain, France, and Portugal with new destinations being added all the time.
One of the largest, RVshare.com has secure payments, roadside assistance and access to a rewards program, which gets you 5% cash back towards your next trip with them. Only available in the U.S.
RV Rental Connection
A new addition to the landscape with limited inventory, RV Rental Connection works in both the U.S. and Canada and includes a nice resources and blog section to help educate RV renters and people looking to rent an RV.
On the whole, a camper is a huge investment in time and money. If you have one you are willing to rent out, it can provide a source of income for you and your family. In the same way, if you’re not quite sure whether a camper is something you are ready to take on, borrowing one is the next best thing.
