Outdoorsy Launches Entrepreneurship Program for Active-Duty and Veteran Service Members in Fast-Growing Recreational Travel Industry

SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 10, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Outdoorsy announced today an incentive program creating entrepreneurship and economic opportunities in the recreational travel industry for active-duty and veteran service members. The company is waiving 100 percent of its service fees for the entire first year when active-duty and veteran service members list their RVs on Outdoorsy's peer-to-peer recreational vehicle marketplace.

Outdoorsy, the largest and most trusted RV rental marketplace, is honoring Veteran's Day but waiving 100 percent of service fees for any veteran or active duty military member listing their RV on the platform.

With $1.87 billion spent each day in the U.S., the recreational travel and services industry is experiencing unprecedented growth. Combined with low startup costs and the ability to utilize unused assets, the RV and camper rental industry is an ideal fit for military service members seeking to supplement their incomes or transition into civilian life.

"Service members make for exceptional business owners," says Outdoorsy's founder and CEO Jeff Cavins. "They know how to lead teams, work with systems, and have the dedication and perseverance to succeed ? no matter what. Our platform provides them with the technology, marketing, and world-class customer service needed to succeed."

Outdoorsy's platform is simple, scalable, and highly profitable, providing aspiring entrepreneurs with a steady pipeline of booking requests and a raft of safety features such as GPS vehicle tracking and DMV driver verification. Additionally, the platform's $1 million insurance policy ensures that all rental transactions conducted through its platform are safe and secure.

Outdoorsy also has a massive network of successful, like-minded RV and camper rental business owners who offer support, camaraderie and advice to new business owners about how to easily scale a rental business to multiple vehicles.

"Service members and veterans are among our most successful pro operators on our platform, making anywhere from $20,000 to $100,000 with just one or two vehicles," says Jennifer Young, co-founder and CMO. "Take Eddie Macias, a Navy veteran, and one of Outdoorsy's top owners. He lives in Monterey, California, and rents out his Forest River Sunseeker to eager tourists. Renting out his RV has given him time back in his day and he plans to expand his business further adding more vehicles and revenue."

Outdoorsy's program is free to join, easy to get started, and even easier to earn money so we hope to see the message get to all active duty military service men and veterans," added Young.

Any active-duty and veteran service member will enjoy waived service fees for their first year in business (on average representing more than $2,800 retail value) upon listing an RV with Outdoorsy. To list your RV or find out more, please visit outdoorsy.com/veterans.
