In our next installation of owner stories, we meet Patrick Campbell. The Baltimore native has made $24,000 in the last year by renting out his Class B motorhome. He offers great advice on how to succeed on Outdoorsy.
I’m known as the “renting guru”: “I am known as the renting guru. I have made a hobby of renting multiple properties on Airbnb and love offering people outstanding accommodations during their vacations and getaways. When I purchased my RV—whom I’ve named Big Bertha—a friend mentioned renting her out as well.”
My RV has her own personality: “Big Bertha is a little Class B. It’s the smallest RV that counts as a motorhome. It has its own sink, toilet, microwave, stove, and bed. But more importantly, my RV has her own identity. The license plate says “Bertha,” and she’s been all over the country: Martha’s Vineyard, balloon festivals, Tennessee, Florida and more.”
I was done in less than 30 minutes: “Compared to other RV rental sites, I found RV to be painless and super easy-to-use. I had my RV listed in less than 30 minutes, and I was booking people in a very short amount of time.”
Hugs from my customers: “I often say that people love the van so much that I now get more hugs from customers than I do from my own family! My main goal is to get them to have fun. That starts right from the key exchange! I give instructions in a hands-on manner — I make the customers DO things themselves around the RV rather than to just issue a long list of instructions.”
How to succeed on Outdoorsy: “I have a few pieces of advice for new owners:
- Monitor comparable RVs in your zip code so you don’t overprice or underprice.
- Look at reviews to see what kind of RVs are getting the most interest. You’ll also be able to gauge their experience after the trip has ended. It’ll give you a peek into what people want, and what kind of amenities you should offer.”
