Looking for an unforgettable national park adventure in a vintage teardrop trailer or a deluxe RV with a shower? We’ve got a tip for you.

Check out Outdoorsy, which is like Airbnb for RV enthusiasts. The Austin, Texas-based company started in 2015 and has grown tremendously ever since with more than 38,000 RVs in North America on its site. Founders Jeff Cavins and Jennifer Young created Outdoorsy after they took a year-long trip across the country in an Airstream. Along the way, they met other RVers in campgrounds. Through many conversations, they realized both RV owners and RV enthusiasts could benefit from an RV rental platform.

Outdoorsy’s search filters are phenomenal, enabling you to locate RVs near you (or your desired pick-up location) in a matter of seconds. You can even get an RV delivered directly to your campsite or the airport. Looking for a pet-friendly pop-up that sleeps two? A camper van with a sink? An RV with WiFi and a bike rack? When you type your specific criteria into Outdoorsy’s search, you’ll only see vehicles that meet your requirements.

“We give people a ton of search options, so they can really narrow down what they want,” says Austin Green, Outdoorsy’s senior manager of affiliate partnerships. “It makes it really easy to find a fit.”

You’ll find RVs in all 50 states, plus Canada. The best part is you can do a search for an RV Wednesday and be on the road with your home-on-wheels by Friday. And if you’re planning afar-flung adventure in Australia, New Zealand, France, Germany or the United Kingdom, you’ll find Outdoorsy has beat you to it. Search from the comfort of your living room to find the vehicle that’s going to help you experience the best of road travel abroad.

For national park-related vacations in the continental United States, you’ll get valuable tips from Outdoorsy’s free RV-oriented digital guides to 40 American national parks that launched in early 2019. The guides tell you where you can find RV hookups near the parks, the maximum RV and trailer lengths for each park, where the park campgrounds are and how you can make reservations. There are even suggested seasonal activities for each park. Bonus: the guides are available to anyone who visits Outdoorsy’s website, so you don’t need to rent an RV to access them.

“It’s cool content for people who want to learn more,” Green says.

And what if you unexpectedly get a flat tire on the way to Yosemite or accidentally back into a car in a Grand Canyon parking lot? Outdoorsy offers several different insurance packages to keep you covered, ranging from basic coverage to ultimate, with up to $1million in liability insurance.

The best part of Outdoorsy is it makes going on an incredible road trips easier than ever.

“It’s a different experience,” says Green, referring to RVing. “It’s not the granola-style camping or waking up in a hotel to a fine continental buffet breakfast. Being in an RV is a great way to be outdoors.”
