Thinking of purchasing a caravan, motorhome, or campertrailer and want to try-before-you-buy?

Wondering what you’d do with your recreational vehicle (RV) set-up after you do an extended trip?

You might even already have one of these RVs and it’s sitting in your driveway

The sharing economy has moved into this space, but is it for you?

We’re joined by Dave Eddy (Director from Camplify, https://www.camplify.com.au)… to answer our questions.

– What RVs are most commonly hired out?

– Who are they types of people who most commonly hire them?

– How much could someone expect to earn?

– What happens if there’s an accident?
