For Clint and Lisa McKenzie, the key to a successful RV rental business has been becoming an integral part of the RVing community. “We have met a few owners that live in the Las Vegas area, and we keep in touch through social media pages,” Clint tells us. “We have developed a network of these owners and we help each other with day-to-day operations, filling in for their clients when their RVs are not available.”
Another thing the McKenzies do for their RV community? “We also repair their RVs for them so they can get back to earning for themselves and the platform.” That’s right, Clint and Lisa have expanded their rental business to include RV repairs! “We do repairs solely for RV owners who rent their RVs to help continue earning revenue for themselves and the platform,” Clint explains.
Besides offering help with day-to-day operations and RV repairs, the McKenzies also do their part to continue growing the world of RV rentals. “We have started three other families in this business, and they are successful and having a wonderful time doing it,” shares Clint.
Of course, Lisa and Clint aren’t only dedicated to fellow owners; they also take great care of their renters. “We try to provide the best in customer service, with a focus on communication, cleanliness, and safety,” says Clint. “It is very important for the client to feel comfortable with their investment, and transparency is paramount in this case.
“We hope our RVs allow renters to experience the joys of camping with their families and create long-lasting memories. We also hope to introduce them to RV ownership so they can experience it firsthand before making such a large purchase.”
Why are the McKenzies so dedicated to sharing these things with others? Because camping is their passion! “Truly, all my camping memories are favorites,” Clint tells us. “I just love to camp out.”
Yes, sharing their passion with their community absolutely has been crucial to the success of Lisa and Clint’s business. Wondering what kind of success we’re talking about? Well, the McKenzies now run their rental and repair business full-time, renting one class A and three class C motorhomes. “We saw immediate results within a couple of weeks after we listed our RV,” Clint shares. “We have earned around $250K in gross revenue over the course of five years.” We’d say those are some pretty successful numbers!
