However, if you go through a rental company, which is the recommended route to take as it is more structured and there is legal paperwork involved so you won’t lose out on funds and instead gain from it.

When you enlist people under the ‘rent my RV’ listing on a website or even a newspaper advertisement, all you need to do is provide the relevant information such as the details of the RV, the make, model, price of renting, provide nice images to appeal to the population, make sure it is clean and well kept, dates of availability, etc.

Once you start receiving the rental requests, you can interview the potential parties and get to choose whom you would like to rent it out to and who doesn’t make the cut. Make sure all vehicle checks are done before and after you hand it over. Make a list of items for proper records and get the driver to sign it. They may do the checks themselves too.

Renting out an RV is ideally a type of business, so you can get tax incentives from it, for items such as filling it up with gas, changing the tires, doing any maintenance work on it. But make sure you keep all receipts and make proper records of everything for the taxman.

This could be one of the best and easiest ways to earn a side income when you are not using it yourself.
