National Appraisal Guides (NADAguides)
Our National Appraisal Guides help consumers navigate the purchase and use of recreational vehicles. With trusted partners who provide information on purchasing, selling, and maintaining RVs, we help shoppers ensure they are getting the best value for their money. Our partners help consumers find RVs for sale, source RV and camper loans, sell their existing recreational vehicle, obtain insurance coverage, earn income through learning how to rent out an RV, and find information on their prospective purchase.
When it comes to valuing recreational vehicles, we use pricing details from www.rvtrader.com along with RV history and title reports provided by www.instavin.com. Our comprehensive pricing data takes into consideration not only a vehicle’s mileage and condition but also VIN-based information such as previous accidents and title details.
Through our guides, consumers can find pricing information specific to recreational vehicles such as travel trailers and fifth wheels, motorhomes, camping trailers, truck campers, park models, and tow vehicles. Tools like instant VIN reports and details on real loan offers from multiple lenders make the shopping process more accessible and more intuitive than ever before.
Along with information from our partners, we also rely on data from industry wholesalers and retailers, which gives a more rounded perspective of recreational vehicle values and price points. However, individual listings may reflect a higher or lower cost than our estimated values, as valuation is inherently subjective.
In addition to RV values, NADA also provides credible pricing information on cars, Powersports, boats, and more. We offer pricing data to individual consumers plus insurance companies, government agencies, dealers, wholesalers, and other institutions.
RVshare is kind of like the Airbnb of camping rigs. Renters can choose from drivable, towable, or pet-friendly RVs. They can even have their choice RV taken to a pickup spot or delivered for convenience. It is the proverbial win-win situation. Owners can make extra cash by making their unused RV available to others, while renters can get the experience of life on the road.
Owners can start the process by finding out what they can earn on rentals. The site offers comprehensive advice on creating an attractive ad to generate interest. They provide insights on taking photos to showcase the vehicle in the best possible light. Owners have full control over who rents their rig and when it’s available. RVshare handles the transaction.
The company also protects the interests of both the owners and the renters with 24/7 roadside assistance, its Worry-Free Rental Guarantee, and insurance. First-time visitors can discuss the process with an RVshare team member before they begin with no obligation to rent out their RV. There is no cost to list a rig. Instead, they take a commission from the rental price.
Renters must verify their ID before using the service. The site has a simple interface for uploading photographs of the individual and their driver’s license or passport. There is no membership charge. However, there is a service fee for every booking. The site also includes a SmartMatch service that allows owners of comparable RVs to contact renters with like interests.
Each listing provides several pictures of the RV along with a description, a list of amenities, and information about the owners. There is also information on their rules, policies, damage deposit, and any other costs. The page also includes renter reviews that cover the cleanliness and value of the RV as well as the communication from the owners.
RVshare began in 2012 and has grown to a network of over 60,000 RV owners. Its website includes several resources for both renters and owners. Its blog offers advice and travel suggestions from the best swimming holes to honeymoon ideas. It also has a video library on additional topics.
