How much can I make?
There several factors that impact how much you can make to include area, amenities, and demand. We provide you with the ability to reach out to RV owners looking for places to stay. You set your own price and calendar. The current national average for an RV site is about $29 a night. There are some sites that charge up to $100 a night.
How much does UpClose-RV make?
Nothing upfront: We only get paid when you do. The property owners make 97% of their asking price. We add a 12% booking fee to the traveler at the daily rate and a 6% fee at stays longer than 30 days. This is lower than the typical "Airbnb" model.
Do I have to pay a membership fee?
NO. You shouldn't have to pay just to see or use our website. We started this business to help the RV community.
As a host do I have to have RV hook up for my guests?
While hook-ups are convenient for your guests they are not necessary. Most RVs come with internal holding tanks for both sewage and fresh water. They also traditionally come with batteries, Some even come with solar panels. Generally, your guests will be self sufficient...that's the kind of people they are :)
How do I get paid as a host?
We use a company called Stripe. They are a "top of the line" financial processing company. They offer secure payment directly to the account you set up with UpClose-RV
Do I have to have a large property or lots of acreage to be a host?
No. There are many small RVs out there. If you have space in your driveway that will fit some of these then there is opportunity for you to be a host. Just make sure you get an accurate measurement of the space you are going to provide so that potential travelers get a good idea whether they can fit before they arrive. PICTURES, PICTURES, PICTURES. Make sure you upload good photos to entice perspective guests.
What about insurance ?
UpClose-RV carries a General Liability policy that protects it hosts from cost of injury to a guest for up to $1,000,000 per occurrence. In addition to this we recommend that Hosts have their guests sign our standard liability waiver.
