Thanks for joining Andy and Tyann for our AMA: Touch Stay x Outdoorsy – tips and tools for RV rental success.

We’ve added a recording of the event in case you missed it or want to revisit some of the points we discussed. You can also head over to the blog to see our key takeaways: 8 tips for renting out your RV

We’ve also picked out the AMA highlights and their timings below.



Key takeaways:

Going into this business accepting that you have clients who are driving a house through an earthquake, and that things are going to go wrong, is probably the most significant switching of your attitude that you can go through – Jessa

It’s suddenly dawned on me just how otherworldly it is for a renter to step into an RV for the first time – Andy

Touch Stay is your road trip safety blanket – Jessa

The smallest mistake with the biggest price tag, that we see the most often, is putting the wrong type of fuel into the RV – Jessa

I think we’ve just described my 2022. I’m going to be renting an RV with Outdoorsy next year, and then I might be buying one! – Tyann
