Hi Everyone! My husband and I are brand new to hosting! We just listed our RV a few days ago. In your experience, how long does it take before you start receiving inquiries? I have a call scheduled tomorrow with a listings coach to make sure we have all of our ducks in a row, but I was just curious on everyone's experience! Thank you! So excited to be a part of this community!
It really depends on a lot of variables, price, type of Rv and amenities. My 5th wheel took a month before I started getting inquiries, but it is built for a specific type of camping (boondocking). My travel trailer was almost instant. It is light and simple, great for weekend getaways.
what kind if rig did you list?
We have a 21ft travel trailer that we renovated! It can sleep up to 5! (https://www.outdoorsy.com/rv-rental/spring-branch_tx/2008_pioneer_spirit_278544-listing) Is there anything I should be doing to boost traffic to it? I'm sure my call with the the listing coach will help as well!
Thanks for your reply!
Hey there @stamtorch @AnandaB and welcome to the Outdoorsy owner community! We have so many successful owners and stories that we could share with you. I'll start by recommending our owner stories of the week where you can read about real people who've gone from just starting out to renting out multiple RVs. All I can say is sure there will be some wear and tear on your RV and that's to be expected, however, giving renters great preparation talks/documentation and a good comprehensive walkthrough at key exchange make a big difference. At the same time if something does happen that's why owners set a deposit amount for incidentals and there's insurance in place. Be sure to download and read over our Outdoorsy owner handbook for best practices and tips as well.
Hope this all helps!
