You could make a great host if...

You have a driveway

Hosting RV travelers doesn’t have to be require huge amounts of spare land. If you simply have a driveway large enough to accommodate an RV, you’re set! In your host profile, you can specify available amenities (like water, electricity hookups, etc.) and what size RV you can accommodate.

You live close to an attraction

If you live close to an attraction like a beach or amusement park, your property could be a highly desirable spot for RV travelers to set up home base for a weekend or more!

You enjoy RV’ing yourself

If you currently RV, then you already know how difficult it can be to find a campsite! The US boasts roughly 18,000 campsites, many of which are booked out months—even years—in advance. You can help support the RV community by becoming a host property.

You enjoy meeting new people—or not!

Are you a people person? Or do you dread interacting with strangers? Good news! As a host, you can be as hands on or hands off as you choose! If you enjoy interacting with guests, you may opt to host smaller RV’s with fewer amenities (such as toilets) that will require more coordination and daily interaction. Likewise, if you prefer to keep to yourself, you can choose to host larger, more self-sufficient RVs.

You’re looking for a great way to earn passive income

Hosting RV travelers is a win-win for all involved. RV travelers are always looking for the next place to set up camp on their next adventure, and it’s a great, easy way to earn extra income through your property. You set the rates, you make the rules.
