Online RV and commercial vehicle marketplace Trader Interactive is launching a new website that will let consumers rent RVs from select dealer fleets, as well as screen private owner vehicles.
RV Trader Rentals, in conjunction with parent company RV Trader’s platform, will be accessible at www.Rentals.RVTrader.com. The business stated the rental industry has experienced a steady spike over the last five to 10 years, with new consumer demographics entering the market.
“The Trader team is thrilled to now offer RV rentals,” Trader Interactive CEO Lori Stacy said. “For over 30 years, our team of digital retailing experts have demonstrated proven results in developing industry-leading marketplaces, and now that expertise is powering RV Trader Rentals. Our deep industry relationships with dealers and industry participants, combined with an intuitive understanding of consumer needs and a dedicated team of RV rentals experts on standby to offer personal assistance, uniquely positions us to respond to the rocketing demand with a helpful, easy and safe RV rental experience for everyone.”
The company stated 2021’s expected market size by revenue is $280.6 million. Last year, the pandemic sparked an interest surge, with new consumers exploring RVing a safer vacation option. That interest remains strong, Trader Interactive stated.
“Rentals are not a passing fad,” company Chief Product and Technology Officer Senthil Velayutham said. “The 2020 spike in rentals merely accelerated an already rapidly expanding market, and our team is uniquely positioned to take advantage of these trends. Even as we celebrate the launch of RV Trader Rentals, we are already looking forward to further enhancing the user experience for both listers and renters. We will continue to optimize features like pricing flexibility, communication capability and booking support, to ensure that we become the leading provider of RV rentals.”
RV Trader Rentals allows owners to list their units for rent. Trader Interactive connects buyers, sellers and renters in the RV, marine, powersports, commercial vehicle and heavy equipment industries through a marketplace portfolio that reaches 9 million monthly visitors.
