Making the case for encouraging two-day RV rentals

From the bloggers at RV Rental Connections:

The RVRA (Recreational Vehicle Rental Association) recently released an RV rental marketplace survey that mentioned four eye-opening trends in the RV rental industry, RV Rental Connection reported.

While most RV rental operators and dealers are experiencing a welcome increase in this year’s revenues, there are some surprising trends to take note of, such as:

  1. 15% of RV rental operators were concerned about remaining profitable
  2. 24% of RV rental operators say the rental season is too short
  3. 20% of RV rental operators say profit margins are inadequate

But most surprising to me was trend number four, which hit me like a hard Tyson uppercut.

4. 100% of the RV rental dealers do not allow two-night rentals. Boom!

The looming question I have to ask is this: Is the RV Industry missing the chance to win a heavy-weight-title? Who is ready to step into the ring, innovate and add two-night rentals to their menu of services, at least for part of the year?

Consider these questions:

  • What rewards could this bring?
  • Is this something I can easily undo if it doesn’t work?
  • What’s the worst that could happen?
