RV Rental Business Thrives During Pandemic, Shows No Signs of Slowed Interest

Jason Sprayberry never imagined he would run a full-time business renting his RV.

“I had a nice job in technology and bought a van so I could go do my own adventure travel, mountain biking, and fly fishing,” Sprayberry told a local report. “I decided I would put it up for rent just to see what would happen, and pretty soon the unit was gone all the time. I bought another one for myself so I could have one, and then it was rented all the time.”

Although traditional flight and hotel vacations are bouncing back, Sprayberry is grateful that the demand for his service remains high. Similar is the case for RV rental company RVshare. The site has over 100,000 RVs available for rent.

“[COVID] didn’t start the trend – it just accelerated it,” said CEO Jon Gray. “It kind of dramatically pushed RV travel into the mainstream of the American travel conscience, and we have experienced that benefit. We’re seeing stronger growth now than we saw during the first two years of the pandemic.”

RVshare collaborated with a third-party company to survey travel patterns. According to results, 70% of millennials stated they would go on a vacation involving a road trip in the following year.
