This is where Camptoo comes in. This is a new sharing economy platform that has just been launched in the UK.
On average, campers registered on the site are rented 10 weeks a year. This means that if you add yours, you could earn on average between five and eight thousand pounds a year ! Of course, this depends on many factors, from the vehicle's capacity and the age of the vehicle, to the British weather, which could be much more.
Whether you simply want to cover the cost of your motorhome, have extra cash for your next vacation or start a viable small business, the possibilities are endless!

Wait for rental requests to be processed
Tenants browse ads and send requests through the built-in messaging tool, giving information about themselves, details of their preferred route and driving experience. You can then decide to accept the reservation and allow them to pick up your vehicle at a location that suits you. By meeting in person, you can share all the wisdom and important advice about your vehicle.
Camptoo provides all the necessary documents, payment processing, checklists and roadside assistance. In addition, for greater peace of mind, tenants are required to pay a deposit to cover unfortunate incidents.
Average rates on Camptoo are 20% cheaper than those offered by other companies. You can set prices that are competitive enough to attract bookings, but do not charge potential travelers.
History of Tim
Tim, originally from Melbourne, was selling his motorhome while he and his wife had made many trips to Australia and they wanted something different. Tim heard about Camptoo and the opportunity to rent his motorhome through his insurance company's newsletter. He contacted the rental potential of his motorhome and decided to try his luck.
Now one of the best hosts, he rented his motorhome for more than 25,000 AUD (over £ 14,000 on the basis of the current exchange rate), and other bookings are to come up. In addition to giving the couple more freedom, they were able to travel around the world. Tim brings his wife to Morocco, Scotland and Vietnam this year with Camptoo money.
The story of Colin
Another motor home owner, Colin, did not intend to lease six motorhomes. He started with one, then a friend asked him if he could borrow it and he grew up from there. The owners decide when they rent it and who, but Colin does not do too much. "I engage them to whomever. Being able to get stories from travelers is one of the most enjoyable things. You hear where they went, where they took the vans and the excitement they feel when they return is amazing. "
Despite frustrations over restrictions and costs associated with traditional rental companies, Camptoo was created by Dutch entrepreneur Martijn Peeters. The overall mission is to spread the joy of escaping the stressful everyday lives and return to nature from time to time.
There are nearly 2,500 vehicles to choose from in Europe and another 250 in Australia, and more and more each week.
A wide range of vehicles is welcome on the site, depending on the size and level of luxury, while you have a converted fire truck (). there is a family, a couple, a group of friends or a solo traveler looking to enjoy it!
