Tech Tuesday: RVShare makes renting an RV faster for owners and renters
After years of taking her son camping with her, Charlie H. realized her son Matt had grown up and that they weren't able to camp as much as they used to.
They'd bought a "Texan" RV trailer because Charlie said the Texas heat made tent camping rough, but she'd realized the RV was often sitting unused.
"I'm retired after 30 years of office work," she said. "I'm always looking for part-time jobs and I found an ad for a production network."
The ad asked for trailers to rent during the production, and Charlie volunteered. The experience turned out to be so positive she started looking for other ways to rent her RV.
That's when she came across RVShare.
The site acts as an intermediate between RV owners and those looking to rent one for a period of time.
Owners can create an account on the site and offer their RV up for renting. The site claims that owners can make anywhere from $15,000 to $30,000 a year depending on how often they rent their trailer.
Users can search anywhere in the country and pick a trailer based on a number of variables including size, number of beds and price.
