Today on the podcast, I am interviewing Joel Clark. Joel is the co-founder of RVShare, the largest peer-to-peer RV rental site currently in the RV industry. For those of you who do not know, peer-to-peer RV rentals is when you aren’t using your RV and you rent it out to people who want to go on RV trips.
Disclaimer: RVShare was one of our sponsors at the RVE Summit. I interviewed Joel as part of one of our speaker sessions and it ended up being an awesome interview. You never know when it comes to sponsors and their content (sorry, Joel). I wanted to bring Joel on the podcast to talk more about how they’ve built up the RVSharing marketplace for a couple reasons:
- Within a few years they’ve went from initial idea, validating their business, & gaining a ton of traction. I wanted to dig more into these initial stages of their business to hear how they got started.
- They have one of THE most trafficked websites in the RV industry. I wanted to share some the SEO strategy they used to gain traction in the peer to peer RV rental space.
- And lastly, because the past few months Alyssa and I have tinkered with renting out our RV a few times and made a decent chunk of change from it. I wanted to dig into a bit of the logistics and questions others might have on how they can earn income from renting their RV.

Quotes from this episode:
“The average RV sits for about 50 weeks per year unused.”
“The two most important questions to ask when creating valuable content for SEO: Are you showing the right information to the right people and how long are you keeping them on your website?”
When optimizing SEO – “Focus on providing value to your audience and have a long-term mindset. It will all pay off over time.”
Thanks for Listening!
