Yes! RVnGO can help you to earn extra dollars by renting out your RV when you aren’t using it. Average rates vary from $80-$250 per night, depending on the RV, dates, or season. Most owners can pay for their RV by renting it 3-5 nights per month, allowing you to enjoy it the rest of the time, or expand rental availability and just watch the money roll in!

An additional way to make incremental income is to provide supplementary services. You could offer to outfit the RV with Bathroom, Bedroom, Entertainment, Kitchen, and Outdoor hospitality packages or include a few of them in your basic rate.

Examples:

Bathroom- Curling Iron, Hair Dryer, Robes, Shampoo, Soap, Supplies for Cleaning, Towels, TP

Bedroom- Blankets, Mattress Pad, Pillows, Sheets

No, a special driver license to rent or drive an RV is not mandatory. You may drive most RVs with a standard Class D license, however, you should be completely comfortable with driving the motorhome you're renting, or with the trailer you're towing, as well as that your vehicle is capable of towing the trailer. Some states may require additional endorsements to drive the largest and heaviest of vehicles. To confirm, check this site for details http://changingears.com/rv-sec-state-rv-license.shtml.

There is no charge to look around RVnGO to rent or buy an RV. If you are interested in communicating with a member, you will need to sign up, which is, also, completely free!

Once you've found the RV you want to rent, send a message to the owner of that RV to confirm availability and arrange the terms of your rental. RVnGO protects member’s privacy until an agreed upon booking has occurred and then personal contact information is exchanged.

RVnGO will facilitate the payment process for both of you, via Braintree, a subsidiary of Paypal , secure your reservation with the agreed upon deposit amount and payment terms so the renter and owner don't have to exchange financial information. The renter will pay for the rental, and we will release the rental funds (less our fees, if any) to the owner once you've picked up the RV and are satisfied with it.

At this time, RVnGO does not provide insurance for RV rentals or owners, but will do so in the very near future. The renter will have to make sure their existing auto policy covers the RV rental by obtaining a binder. Most auto policies exclude coverage for RV rentals unless a specific 'RV Rental Rider' is obtained. Some RV owners that rent their RVs (particularly fleet managers and dealers) already have RV Rental Riders set to go, inquire about the details with them. If the RV you wish to rent is not covered, you will need to arrange an RV Rental Rider auto policy through a third party carrier, such as MBAchoice.com, which will cover liability during your trip (i.e. if you cause an accident and damage to the RV).

No, in almost all cases, the insurance coverage offered by credit card companies when booking a rental vehicle on their card does not apply to RVs. Check the terms and conditions of your specific credit card to confirm whether or not this coverage is available.

Payment for the total RV rental will be made to RVnGO by the renter and will be held in trust until possession of the RV has occurred. If the RV is unavailable for any reason, or unsatisfactory in accordance with our Rental Satisfaction Guaranty Policy, we will refund your payment. At the end of the rental, when the vehicle is returned, we will refund any damage deposit to the renter if there is no damage. In the case damage did occur, RVnGO will release the amount of damage caused to the owner and return any balance to the renter.

RVnGO recommends taking a walk around, inside and out of, the RV to inspect for pre-existing damage. Just like you would when you rent a car, note any problems you see (photos with your camera are a good idea, so there isn't a dispute on who caused the damage).

The RV owner should familiarize you with how the RV works. Check that the electrical, gas, mechanical and septic systems are in operating order and reference manuals for each are available. Also, insure that there is a quality spare tire, fire extinguishers, and smoke detectors included.

Lastly, place emergency contact information in a handy location in the event a breakdown or accident occurs.
