In 2016 a 20 group of RV Rental dealers recognized the need to create a network of top tier rental dealers providing a quality experience for the domestic and international rental customer. By joining forces, these rental dealers created RVRD.org to increase profitability and raise the bar on customer satisfaction with member dealers achieving some of the highest customer satisfaction ratings in their market. Since its inception, RVRD has grown to more than 22 locations across the U.S.with a rental fleet of over 850 units and is currently looking for qualified dealers to expand its nationwide network.
“We are gathering the best RV rental operators in the country to share best practices, participate in better buying power, discounts and opportunities for our member dealers enabling a better rental experience for their customers,” said Scott Jones – RVRD Managing Director and co-owner of Access RV in Salt Lake City. “We are dealers that offer a quality rental experience at a competitive price.”
With the emerging P2P market in recent years such as RV Share and Outdoorsy, RVRD members are seeing a sharp increase in last-minute reservations from P2P customers because the private RV they had reserved is suddenly not available. Rental customers realize the importance of working with an established RVRD rental operator that can supply a well-maintained RV for their special vacation.
To help each member dealer succeed, RVRD.org provides 20 group benefits with regular online discussions, reports that identify new market trends, share best ideas, increase profits and provide ongoing peer mentoring to accelerate business growth and profitability with experienced leaders in the RV rental industry.
Martin Onken, RVRD Board Member, and owner of Expedition Motorhomes in Los Angeles said, “RVRD is dedicated to the success and promotion of individual local dealers. Member dealers proudly display the RVRD logo along with theirs, signifying a powerful alliance of dozens of equally minded dealerships across the country. Ultimately many of these dealers will share customers, plan trips, and routinely offer long-distance one-way rentals through the RoamAway online platform, all the while maintaining a good neighbor, local flavor.”
RoamAWAY.com is an online website of RVRD members who meet the highest standards. It is designed for rental customers looking to rent from the best local rental dealers with the benefits of national support and integrity.
RVRD.org will be holding their annual member dealer conference this year December 10th and 11th in Charlotte, North Carolina with presentations from select manufacturers and service providers. For more information about becoming an RVRD dealer member contact us.
