RecNation, one of the country’s largest RV self-storage companies, and RVshare, an RV rental website, announced a partnership designed to solve pain points for RV owners and renters. RecNation will be powering a first-of-its-kind business for easy rental management.
RecNation’s White-Glove Rental Program aims to allow RV owners to earn hassle-free rental income from their owned assets. RecNation will provide professional management including listing and marketing the RV rental, customer service, post-trip cleaning, repairs and more.
“With the massive increase in RV owners participating in the peer-to-peer rental market, there is a gap in the industry for professional management services” – RecNation
The goal of the partnership is to eliminate barriers many RV owners face when renting peer-to-peer. The White-Glove program will dismiss owners of rental responsibilities with the continued upside of earning a rental income. RecNation’s RV White-Glove program will provide professional, secure and reliable RV rental services saving owners 6-7 hours on average per rental.
The program will include thorough inspections, diligent and informative check-in procedures, and experienced onsite staff equipped to meet the demands of the rental business. Most of these services will also be available to RVshare owners on an a la carte basis through their Premium Rental Services.
Once owners are registered with RecNation, they will have the ability to schedule services online that could vary depending on the owner’s unique needs:
- Drop-Off Trust Center: The renter can drop off the RV at RecNation’s facility for the Owner to pick up at their convenience.
- RV Cleaning and Turnaround: Oftentimes the most time-consuming aspect of renting an RV, RecNation staff will clean and sanitize the interior and exterior of the RV, including changing linens.
- Renter Check-In and Walkthrough: RecNation staff will walk renters through how to use and operate each vehicle, as well as answer any questions to ensure they are comfortable and safe during their trip.
- Rental Checkout and Inspections: Post-rental inspections will be conducted to ensure the RV is still in good condition and report any issues.
- 24/7 Customer Support: RecNation offers around-the-clock support for any unexpected issues on the road. (White-Glove Program Only)
“This partnership is a win-win for RV owners and renters,” RecNation CEO Gary Wojtaszek said. “This program will help owners be hands-off while making more revenue. And renters can expect professionalism and reliability throughout the rental process.”
RecNation is piloting the rental program in the Dallas/Fort Worth metro area with local RVshare owners, with plans to expand to other locations. RecNation has 14,000 storage units spread across 51 locations in six states with plans to continue to expand across the country.
“With the massive increase in RV owners participating in the peer-to-peer rental market, there is a gap in the industry for professional management services,” said RVshare CEO Jon Gray. “Property rental management is ingrained in the vacation rental industry and has yet to find a place in the RV rental industry. We believe in RecNation’s mission and are looking forward to partnering with them to professionalize the RV rental process.”
