RVing in your Friends yard.

I have started to build a web site where anyone can list a place to overnight an RVer. No memberships involved just a free to post listing from zero dollars a night to what ever the host wants to charge. Kind of like vrbo.com but for RVing. I am aware of all the membership clubs that give you access to a mailing list thats not what I am doing. It will be a free reservation site and cash collection site for anyone who wants to host an RVer.

I am posting this in hopes to get some feedback from the community of the merits of such a site and even some suggestions of what could be included. It would be a site that would include overnight camping-storage-rent out your own RV and eventually caravan tours.

Please let my know what you think.

I would think your insurance rates would go up quite a bit... people are sue happy. All they have to do is stumble and fall as a friend of mind did, call a lawyer, and have you in court. She walked away with $26,000. Talk about easy money.

I'm wandering if you posted "No Trespassing" signs, until after signing a waiver would help?

My fear would be how would you weed out the undesirables. There is always a few that will leave a mess for you to clean.

I know that, in NC anyway, if I do not charge a fee, then your use of my property for recreational purposes is generally 'at your own risk'. I learned this when researching the liability associated with the use of our horse facility by our neighbor's boarders.

This, plus signed liability wavers was sufficient for our insurer.

The site will have a revue system where the RVer can rate the Host and the Host can rate the RVer so the Hosts can decline reservation requests from people that have poor revues. Anyone hosting should carry proper liability insurance or for that matter anyone that owns land should have liability insurance. But again the idea is not to turn your yard into an RV Park but just to Host 1 or 2 RVs at a time.

And a signed waver is a good idea, thanks

Great Idea

I have thought of this myself, I like the idea. Need a place to limit number of days if needed. How do you plan on paying for your time and web site?

(it's an "established site" which seems very similar to the one that you have "started to build").

As far as days spent at someones place the host can set minimum's and maximum days. Revenue would only be derived if a host charges money for parking at their place we will add 10% fee to the RVer. But if people want to offer their place for free they can and anyone could stay with them no fee, its like Boondockers without the membership. I think the membership model is too limiting my site will let anyone list a site, get approved and be ready for bookings in 30 minutes and available to any RVer. No memberships required.

I really appreciate the feedback.

Have you used this? Seems like a good idea for short term stays.

Seems like I remember FMCA has a similar over night listing in the back of some of the publications?

I have not used either the FMCA list of "Boondockers Welcome".
Although we often camp, (or boondock), for short periods at the homes of people we know, we have no interest in staying in the yard of strangers.

However, if I were interested in parking in some stranger's yard I would pay the $20 to become a member of the established "Boondockers Welcome" before I would consider using any "new kid on the block".
