New to OD, had a potential renter ask about this trip, initially, he didn't indicate the duration until I asked as I assumed it would be nearly a 3-week rental. In an RV that's about 5 days out. Assuming a week in Florida and 5 days back.
He then came back and said no, he miscommunicated he would be picking up and returning in nine days with four people total.
Now I'm starting to get a little nervous.
I hadn't planned on charging for mileage. Never believing somebody would want to blow 5,000 mi in 9 days
I would make sure they realize how long it’s actually going to take them to get there and back. If it’s a towable - you need to find out their experience towing - same for a driveable. Realistically that trip is 4 days there and 4 days back. I would ask what i call open ended questions - such as - how long do you plan on being in Florida for? How long do you plan to travel each day - things like that. It could be that they will have multiple drivers and driving straight through 🤷♀️ And if it’s a towable, most do not charge mileage. I usually have at least one camper a year go to Yellowstone and back! Part of a successful rental is setting realistic expectations. Many don’t realize just how long it’s going to take them to get somewhere as you need to stop more frequently and travel at a slower speed. I had someone who wanted to tow one of my campers 16+ hours away for a 4 day trip - assuming they would tow it straight there. They decided against the trip once I educated them that it would be a two day trip there and 2 days back…
