Labor Day weekend will be here before you know it, and the end-of-summer holiday is the perfect chance to take one last vacation with your family before the kids are back in school.

If you’ve been itching for a change of scenery but have concerns about traveling during the coronavirus crisis, RV travel is a fun, affordable way to explore the country while still practicing social distancing. And thanks to RVshare, renting an RV has never been easier.

RVshare is the world’s first and largest peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace, with over 100,000 listings across the country with rentals ranging from travel trailers to luxury motorhomes. Renters can use RVshare’s listing filters to find the perfect RV that suits all of their vacation, tailgate or temporary lodging needs.

Get Out And Explore The Country

As national parks begin to open their gates to visitors, now is a great time to explore the country with family. RVshare has helpful and informative guides for where to stay and what to do at national parks including Yellowstone National Park, Grand Canyon National Park and Zion National Park. RVshare’s national park guide provides real-time updates on which state and national parks are open.

Additionally, there are plenty of smaller parks, KOA campgrounds, Yogi Bear Jellystone Park campgrounds and Harvest Hosts sites that remain open. You can also plan a road trip to a beach, hiking trails or any number of cultural destinations. With RVs, the possibilities are endless.

RV Travel Lends Itself To Social Distancing

Rather than pushing past guests in a crowded hotel lobby, traveling by RV allows you to remain in a safer, self-contained environment — as long as you follow the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s guidelines. Many RV models feature all the amenities of a hotel, including full-size bedrooms, kitchens, living spaces, common rooms and bathrooms.

With a little planning, you can spend extended amounts of time traveling across the country without having to come in close contact with anyone outside of your family.

Coronavirus & RVs – What You Need to Know

RVshare Provides Safety And Assurance

Everyone gets a little nervous before locking in a vacation rental. With RVshare, you can rest assured that you’re protected at every step of the renting process. The company offers rebooking assistance, damage deposit protection and rental replacements in case of a misrepresented listing. RVshare also has a dedicated support team you can contact day or night via chat, phone or email.

RVshare offers 24/7 emergency roadside assistance on every rental booked online. It's the only marketplace to provide liability, comprehensive and collision coverage backed by two "A"-rated insurance carriers for both domestic and international renters.

Why Rent Through RVshare

Founded in 2013, RVshare has listings across the U.S. with rentals available in all 50 states. Its peer-to-peer rental platform also features safe and secure instant booking and payment with rates as low as $49 per day. The company also offers payment and fraud protection, pet-friendly options and one-way rentals.

If you already own an RV, renting it out through RVshare is an easy way to earn money and get your RV out of the driveway for a while. (In fact, most RVs sit unused in driveways and parking lots for a whopping 86 percent of the year.) RV owners who rent out their vehicles using RVshare have made up to $40,000 per year by renting their unit — essentially, a second income.

The best part? You don’t need a special permit to operate an RV — anyone above the age of 25 who has a valid driver’s license can drive one. RVshare also offers a variety of different RV styles perfect for all driving comfort levels. Whether you feel comfortable towing a trailer in a large SUV or you’re ready to rent something that feels more like driving a bus, RVshare has the right vehicle to suit your preferred driving style.

Whether you’re ready to head to Yellowstone, embark on a cross-country adventure or want to take one last trip with the kids before school starts, make this Labor Day weekend one to remember by renting an RV through RVshare.
