Interview with Mike McNaught of RVezy

In this episode of the Modern Camper Magazine Podcast we chat with RVezy co-founder Mike McNaught. RVezy is a peer-to-peer RV rental market place allowing Canadians to rent out their RV to others and were recently featured on CBC’s Dragon’s Den. They call themselves the Airbnb for RVs and we have a great conversation about the number of rental RVs in Canada, how Mike started the business, how people put their RV on the website and what they have in store for the future. I think you’re going to like this one. We get really deep in on the peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace and how this might affect how Canadians camp. Keep in mind this was recorded a year ago so it’s a bit dated. We hope you like it. Main image sourced from RVezy Facebook Page.
