As an RV Host, you’ll need to do just a few things. Even though our hosting concept is similar to HomeAway or AirBnB, our customers bring their own homes with them, so there’s much less work involved.
Basic expectations include:
- Communicating to make sure they know how to get to your home and where to park.
- Saying hello and making them feel welcomed when they check-in.
- Some hosts offer coffee and a small breakfast in the morning.
- Most stays are for 2-3 nights. We limit the number of nights to 5 for our Home RV Hosts.
What Inspired RV Hosting?
Many cities around the US are popular destinations for RVers, yet there’s limited room for them to stay at the RV parks in town.
Austin, TX - the hometown of RoverPass.com - is a prime example. It attracts RVers from all over the world. Even though there are RV parks, most of their guests stay for months on end because it’s an easier way to fill up their RV park. Many cities around the U.S. are the same way.
This creates a great opportunity to accommodate RVers who want to visit the city for a few days but can’t find any availability to park their rig and go sightseeing.
Frequently Asked Questions
How much room do I need to provide to host? RV’s vary in size from small pull-behind trailers attached to a small SUV, all the way up to Class A 36 foot-plus RVs like the one Robert De Niro drove in the movie Meet the Fockers. Since you’ll be able to decline reservations based on RV sizes you can choose what works for your space.
That said, you want to provide enough room to where your guest feels like they have their own space. Some guests have awnings attached to their vehicle and put foldable chairs and a table out. Others bring their own tents to pitch to lounge in, and some might have a hammock to hang. Our guests are also ones who are visiting the destination for a few days so more than likely they’ll be out and about during their stay.
What kind of information will I receive with the reservation request? Before confirming the reservation, you’ll get their name along with their party size and RV rig information. After confirming, you’ll get their contact information to start communicating with them.
What if I just want to host a few times a year? That’s totally fine! Our platform can block out certain dates or entire months that don’t work for you.
How can I maximize my earnings? The better your hosting, the more you can increase your nightly rate. For example, if you install an electricity RV hookup, then you can start charging a higher nightly rate. Or perhaps you want to have a picnic table with some shade. Any amenities you add can help you justify a higher nightly rate. We encourage to get into it and have some fun!
