What: RentNotBuy is a free listing service for renting out everything from campers to household items and tools. 

Commissions and fees: None

Husl $core: $$$$

Where: National


If you’ve got an unused RV or camper; camping equipment; bikes — or anything else that you’re willing to temporarily part with for a price — you can list it on RentNotBuy for free.

This forum is offered as a community service and charges nothing to renter or rentee, which accounts for our relatively high rating. But the fact that it’s free also causes some overuse, with people putting up everything from vacation rentals to clothing. Moreover, you have to handle payment and security (to make sure the renter returns your items) on your own.

With no specialty and pretty random listings, traffic is likely to be light. So if you list here, also list on a better-used site such as CraigsList or one of the many that specializes in a particular item, like AirBnb does for vacation rentals. 

Other sites where you can list miscellaneous property (outside of cars and houses) for rent: Loanables and Zilok
