Peer-to-peer RV rental marketplace RVezy has received $23 million in investment from the founder of Canadian online dating app Plenty of Fish, Markus Frind. Founded back in 2017, RVezy, which markets itself as the ‘Airbnb of RVs’, helps RV owners offset the costs of ownership by renting out their RVs when they are not being used.
RV manufacturers have set new RV shipment records for each of the past six months, and all industry segments continue to work together to keep up with soaring consumer demand and unprecedented retail sales. These are truly remarkable times for our industry and the outdoor category.
The RV Industry Association’s (RVIA) April 2021 survey of manufacturers found that total RV shipments ended the month with 51,813 units, the most for any April on record and a more than 9% increase over the previous record set in April 2018.
