Whether you use GoCamp, Outdoorsy or RVshare to rent out your RV, you’ll want to be fastidious about properly checking your rig in and out. Each platform will have its own unique requirements and paperwork. The best practices below transcend specific protocols.
Supplemental Rental Agreements
Thoroughly review the check-in and check-out paperwork provided by the platform you use, as well as any generic rental agreements that may be employed. You and the renter will be bound to these agreements.
If you find them lacking in any respect, you could create a Supplemental Rental Agreement that is unique to your RV. For example, if the generic rental agreement does not explicitly state that renters will be responsible for tolls, you could add language about tolls to your supplemental agreement and have renters sign off on your specific terms in addition to the generic terms of the service you use.
Anticipate Renter Questions in Advance
It’s important to have a supply list and driver’s manual for your rental. When put time into these resources up front, there will be fewer questions to answer when renters pick up your rig.
We recommend sending the renter your supply list and driver’s manual at least two weeks before their reservation. This way, they can begin the process of familiarizing themselves with your rig.
Keep Helpful Information in the Rig
Be sure to store guidebooks, instructions on how to operate key features, and any necessary insurance information in your RV. When your renter is in the forest trying to remember how to deploy your awning, you’d rather they reference the information you thoughtfully stored in the RV than call you.
