Why Rent Out Your Camper Van

You bought a camper van because you love the outdoors and the freedom of the open road. But for many, living on four wheels full-time just isn’t practical.

So what do you do when your camper van’s not in use?

More and more people are jumping at the opportunity to bring in extra cash between road trips by renting out their van on GoCamp. You can offset your van’s purchase price and maintenance costs, avoid paying for storage and invite others to share in the spirit of vanlife. What can be sweeter than that?

Learn how you can benefit from renting your van through GoCamp and how our process works.

The Benefits of Renting Out Your Van with GoCamp

Beyond the potential for making some serious money—many van owners are on track to make more than $50,000 a year—there are a number of reasons why you might consider adding your van to the GoCamp fleet.

Introduce New People to the Joys of Van Life

Whether your renters are single, couples, besties, or families with kiddos, you have the opportunity to make a lot of new friends. Renting out your camper van is a fresh and exciting way to connect with people you wouldn’t otherwise have the opportunity to meet.

You’ll feel great knowing you’ve opened a new way to experience the outdoors for someone else.

Counterbalance Costs of Maintenance of Your Camper Van

Your camper van will always require ongoing upkeep. By renting your van out to other travelers, you’ll have extra cash to put toward keeping your van in pristine condition. And you’ll also be able to make upgrades to elevate the experience for yourself and your renters.  

Plus, while your van is on the road, it’s not at home collecting dust or racking up storage fees elsewhere.

Rent Your Camper Van Out As Little or Much As You’d Like

There will likely be times throughout the year when you want to enjoy the van for yourself. With GoCamp, you have the flexibility and the autonomy to build your rental schedule around your adventure needs.

Keep in mind that you can list more than one camper van, too. You may find yourself at a point where you can rent one out year-round and enjoy the second whenever you want.

GoCamp Does the Marketing and Lead Generation Work For You

When you list your camper van with GoCamp, you have the opportunity to make the most money possible without doing all the heavy lifting.

The GoCamp team will optimize your listing, help schedule a professional photoshoot, market your van, and vet potential renters.

Listing Your Camper Van With GoCamp

As a van owner, you have many listing options. You can go it alone on one of the bigger peer-to-peer sites, or you can take advantage of the listing services provided by a managed marketplace like GoCamp.

With big box marketplaces, renters have an overwhelming number of van listings to choose from, which means you’ll need to work hard to ensure your camper van stands out. Be prepared to hustle and get high quality photos, price your rig competitively, respond to inquiries quickly to stay high in the search rankings, and set clear rental terms and policies. You’ll also need to consistently follow up for reviews at the end of every rental because positive reviews will drive your success.

With GoCamp, you’ll join a curated fleet of camper vans and Class B RVs.
