The numbers shared below represent NET income to the van owner. In other words, money in your pocket As a reminder, GoCamp is one of the only peer-to-peer rental platforms where van owners keep 100% of the revenue earned from things like mileage fees, pet fees, and other add-ons. Most other sites take a percentage of the total booking, including mileage fees and add-ons. For owners in our PRO program, GoCamp only takes a percentage of the nightly rental rate. That means you will always earn more money when you partner with GoCamp. We’re van owners too; we get it.

    Hi!

    I just got my van and am almost done renovating it. I am very interested in listing my van for rental. Do you guys currently operate in Los Angeles?
