Review:

Outdoorsy is a marketplace where people who own RVs can connect with people who want to rent RVs. RV-owners set their own rental rate and terms, determining whether to collect a security deposit, charge a cleaning fee and any other rules for renters.

When your RV is booked, you pay the site a commission ranging between 20% and 25%. Outdoorsy collects all fees 14 days prior to the rental and remits the money to you within 24 hours after the rental has started.

Vehicles are inspected every 90 days. That gives renters an assurance that they’re getting a vehicle that’s in good condition and gives owners support if they think a renter has damaged their vehicle. Outdoorsy provides insurance through Liberty Mutual. While the site itself disclaims responsibility for damages, Liberty Mutual covers everything except a deductible, which the site says is the renter’s responsibility.

Given that the deductible ranges from $1,500 to $3,000, it would be smart to demand that much as a security deposit, to make sure your renter is good for any uncovered damages. However, vehicles must be year 2000 or later with less than 150,000 miles to qualify for Outdoorsy’s insurance coverage. There is a “vintage vehicle” coverage option for older vehicles, but it is more restrictive.

Although several consumers have mentioned that their RVs were damaged by renters, these same individuals seemed satisfied with the way the site handled claims. Overall, reviews of the site are overwhelmingly positive. The site also gives suggestions on rental rates, which indicate you could make good money renting out your trailer. For these two reasons, we give Outdoorsy our highest Husl$core.

What their users say (Trust Pilot)

Outdoorsy has the best customer service and the staff is so helpful. We got a few bumps and bruises on our trailer, but once they are fixed, we will be back next season! Our renters were fabulous, accidents happen.

Used Outdoorsy both as a renter and owner and love how smooth and safe the process is on both sides. Awesome platform and community. Thank you 🙂

Great company they help me pay for my rv.

So far so good! Meeting great people and my RV is paying for itself.

All of the hesitations I had about renting my RV were put to rest quickly.I highly recommend using this platform.

I appreciate the opportunity to use Outdoorsy to help book, track, and qualify my renters. I am a one-person operation, and require delivery of my campers. Therefore, Outdoorsy saves me time to provide important services, such as setup up, fully stocked and delivered vintage campers within a 150-mile radius of my location.
