Rent (or Rent Out) a Teardrop Trailer on RV Share

The sharing community is going way beyond companies like Airbnb, Uber and Lyft. Now anyone with an RV can offer their rig for use by someone looking to take a short or long camping trip. RVShare is a website where you can conduct a search for campers and trailers to rent. You can even put your own camper or trailer on the site as a rental. This includes Class A motorcoaches, travel trailers and even teardrop trailers.

Matthew of RVShare told me that teardrop trailer owners are more than welcome to post their trailers for rent. They would be classified as a travel trailer.
"What I would suggest when listing a teardrop trailer on RVshare is to provide a very detailed description on the listing," he said. "You can classify it as a travel trailer, but I would go in depth with the description and make sure that you upload high quality photos of the RV."

If you are looking for an RV to rent, you can do a search for the area you will be traveling from and your pickup and dropoff dates. Your request will go directly to the owner. Rates range from around $25 a night for a two-person van or VW bus to about $200 a night for an RV that sleeps six to eight people. Several teardrops on the site were renting for about $150 a night. Both owners and RV dealers can list an RV on RVShare.

If you do decide to rent out your teardrop on RV Share, Matthew suggests that you make sure whoever is renting your trailer has the correct insurance.

"Insurance is an area that we are constantly working to make easier for owners," he said. "Presently, owners ask renters to secure what are called binder policies from their own auto insurance companies. We are also working on a more simple, turnkey solution."
