Why should I rent out my motorhome?

The costs of keeping a motorhome can really add up, and the constraints of daily life can restrict how often your van gets taken out for a spin. You may use your motorhome enough per year to make it financially preferable to own instead of rent, or you may simply prefer owning one and being able to customize it. Either way, a solution could be to rent out your motorhome through a sharing platform. You benefit from an additional income, which can easily cover the costs of owning a motorhome and even go towards your own holidays! Furthermore, renting out your campervan contributes to the sharing economy, which aims to reduce how much people purchase/make and instead share the resources we have. So, by renting out you’re providing another family the chance to go away for a weekend when your motorhome would’ve sat unused anyways - and earning a profit!
