How are renters screened?
RV Trader utilizes SharePass to evaluate potential renters and provide a robust protection package for each booking.
SharePass provides peace of mind by implementing rigorous screening and analysis tools before bookings are approved. These enhanced processes minimize fraud and make rental protection secure and more intelligent.
Our 100% digital reservation and claims systems enable transactions to be completed quickly and securely, and extensive coverage is automatically included through the rental period.
How do I choose marketing photos for my vehicle?
High-quality marketing photos draw attention to your vehicle’s profile, and result in an increased number of views! Create a great first impression by following these photo tips:
- Make sure your RV is clean. Remove all personal items and trash from the interior of the vehicle, and arrange sheets and blankets neatly on any beds. The exterior of the vehicle should also be free from any dirt or debris, paying special attention to tires and windows.
- The RV is the star of the shot. Choose a neutral background with no one in or around the RV to make sure your vehicle is the center of attention. If there are any features that you want to highlight, such as new appliances or a tow hitch, make sure to take a picture of those as well.
- Good lighting works wonders. Bright, natural lighting is ideal for your RV photos. Ensure that the light source is behind you, and that the photo is in focus and free from glare
- Keep the renter in mind. Take photos of the interior and exterior of the RV at different angles. Open the slide-outs and set the vehicle up for camp. These photos, along with your vehicle description, should give renters a complete picture of your RV and its features.
Photos should be at least 1024 pixels wide, and the maximize file size is 5 MB. Please note that images may be resized and optimized for use by RV Trader.
Our 100% digital reservation and claims systems enable transactions to be completed quickly and securely, and extensive coverage is automatically included through the rental period.

What happens if the renter has an accident? (For Owners)
RV Trader renters are carefully screened, and along with the training you provide before departure, are equipped to drive your RV safely. In the unfortunate case that an accident occurs, renters are instructed to notify you as soon as safely possible. If another vehicle is involved, then a police report will also be filed. The damage will be detailed on the RV Return Form.
If the damage exceeds the renter’s security deposit, then a claim may be filed. Owners have 48 hours after the vehicle is returned to file a claim. The renter’s security deposit will be applied towards the deductible. The SharePass Claims Team has dedicated phone and email lines for claims reporting: 833-379-7277, and email@example.com. The SharePass Protection Package includes up to $1 million of Liability and $125,000 of Physical Damage Protection for the RV. The renter is fully responsible for damage, losses, or other liabilities that may occur during time of rental.
How do I deny a booking?
To decline a booking request, first visit the Bookings tab in your RV Trader account. Under the “Requests” section, find the relevant request and click “Reject” on the right side of the screen. Both you and the renter will receive an email confirming the reservation denial.
Please note that you can always add additional rental rules or otherwise edit the vehicle listing right in you RV Trader account. Just click on the Vehicles tab, then click “Edit” next to the listing that you would like to adjust. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
How do I cancel a booking? (Owners)

By accessing or using the Listing Services, Customer represents and warrants that it is either an entity or an individual of an age of 18 or older.
b. Customer must first establish a Platform Account in order to post Listings. Customer may not have more than one (1) active Platform Account. Customer covenants to provide true, correct, and
complete information during the registration process and to update such information to keep it true, correct, and complete. As part of the Listing Services, all Listings posted and maintained by
Customer will be linked to Customer’s Platform Account. A “Platform Account” will be either a
Dealer Center account, for Customers that are dealers of RVs, or a MyTrader account, for non-dealer owners of RVs.
c. To post a Listing for display to potential Renters, Customer must answer and complete several
questions about the RV to be listed, including, but not limited to, the value, location, size, features, availability of the RV, pricing, related rules, and financial terms. Customer warrants that all information regarding the RV submitted to the Platform in connection with the Listing will be true, correct, and complete, and Customer covenants to update such information periodically to ensure that the Listing remains true, correct, and complete. Without limiting the foregoing, Customer covenants that any RV that is the subject of a Listing will actually be available for rental by a prospective Renter during the periods the Listing indicates that such RV will be available.
d. In order for Customer to have an RV that is the subject of a Listing covered by SharePass’ Protection Package (described in the Rental Agreement) during any rental effected over the Platform, the RV must first pass the SharePass vehicle requirements certification. Thereafter, the RV’s electrical systems, liquid petroleum gas system, appliances, and brakes must be inspected once every three (3) months thereafter. Tires must have 50% tread or greater at time of rental. SharePass reserves the right to request proof of inspection and service records as part of any claims process, and failure to provide such materials may result in a denial of applicable claims for coverage.
e. Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is responsible for any and all Listings that Customer posts. Accordingly, Customer represents and warrants that any Listings posted by Customer, the rental of any RV described therein, and the use of any RV therein by a Renter accepted by Customer, (i) will not breach any agreements that Customer has entered into with any third parties or otherwise conflict with, infringe, or violate the rights of third parties, and (ii) will be in compliance with all applicable laws, rules, and regulations that may apply to such RV, including, without limitation, insurance requirements, Department of Motor Vehicle regulations, zoning laws, and laws governing rentals and operation of RVs. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Trader does not assume any responsibility for Customer’s compliance with any applicable laws, rules and regulations.
f. Without limiting Section 2.e above, Customer covenants to obtain and maintain at its sole cost and expense insurance policies that (i) provide coverage for the RV and any liability arising out of its operation or use by any Renter or Additional Driver during the period of any Renter’s rental of the RV and (ii) contain limits and coverages that are sufficient to satisfy any applicable laws, rules, or regulations regarding minimum insurance requirements in the state in which such RV is registered. Customer acknowledges and agrees that neither Trader nor SharePass have any responsibility for ensuring that the insurance coverages and limits applicable to the RV and any use or operation thereof by Renter or any other party satisfy any minimum insurance laws, rules, or regulations of any state.
g. Trader reserves the right, at any time and without prior notice, to remove or disable access to any Listing for any reason, including Listings that Trader, in its sole discretion, considers to be
objectionable for any reason, in violation of this Owner’s Agreement or otherwise harmful to the

Customer may not refuse to rent an RV to a given Renter or impose varying reservation terms or fees on Renters based on race, ethnicity, color, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, or marital status. If Trader determines that Customer has violated the foregoing sentence, Trader will take steps to enforce this policy, up to and including terminating Customer from the Platform and all Listing Services.
i. Customer may not use the Listings Services to identify and/or communicate with a Renter on the Platform and then complete a rental transaction directly with such Renter outside of the Platform such that Customer and Renter are able to circumvent the obligation to pay any fees or other amounts to Trader, SharePass, or other vendors on the Platform related to the provision of the Listing Services.
3. RENTALS; RENTERS
a. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Trader does not act as an insurer or as a contracting agent for Customer as an Owner. If a Renter requests a booking of Customer’s RV and uses Customer’s RV, any agreement Customer enters into with such Renter is between Customer and the Renter, and Trader is not a party thereto except as expressly indicated therein, if at all. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Customer’s sole and exclusive rights and remedies with respect to any rental or use of Customer’s RV by or on behalf of a Renter, including rights and remedies in the event any of damage, theft, vandalism, or destruction of such RV during such rental or any fines, penalties, tickets, or other liabilities incurred by or on behalf of a Renter during such rental, will be against the Renter and not against Trader.
b. Renters are responsible for any damages to an RV rented through the Platform. Customer hereby releases and discharges Trader from, covenants not to sue Trader as a result of, and shall indemnify, defend (at Trader’s option), and hold harmless Trader and its directors, members, managers, officers, employees, contractors, and advisors from and against, any and all claims (direct or indirect), liabilities, losses, demands, proceedings, damages, expenses, costs (including attorney’s fees), and other amounts resulting from, any damages, injuries, insurance claims, towing, service or repairs, tolls, fines, traffic violations relating to an RV, or any theft or destruction of an RV, that is rented over the Platform.
information regarding a Renter’s identity, and SharePass or its contractors may make inquiries and
perform checks to validate a Renter’s identity and collect information about the Renter.
Notwithstanding the foregoing, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Trader does not endorse or provide any representations and warranties with respect to the suitability, skill, or qualifications of any Renters. Customer acknowledges and agrees that it is solely responsible for determining the suitability of others desiring to rent Customer’s RVs.
d. Upon creating a Listing, Customer may also choose to include certain requirements that must be met by Renters in order to request to rent such RV, including, without limitation, requiring Renters to have a profile picture or verified phone number; provided, however, Customer acknowledges and agrees that Trader does not attempt to confirm or verify such information.
e. Trader cannot confirm, and does not confirm, that the Renter(s) that arrives at the agreed upon pick-up location for a rental is the same person that submitted the request for the rental via the Platform. Therefore, at the start of a rental, Customer is solely responsible for completing the following steps to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience for the Renter:
i. Verifying the driver’s license for each named driver that arrives in person at the pick-up
ii. Verifying the credit card used for securing the reservation for the Renter(s) that arrive in
person at the pick-up location;
iii. Instructing Renters on all pertinent systems in the RV, including climate control systems,
awnings, slide-outs, leveling jacks, generator, power management, power hookup,
kitchen equipment, bedroom, water hookup, and fluids systems;
iv. Taking the Renter(s) on a test drive to ensure safe operation capability; and
v. If renting a trailer, ensure the Renter knows how to properly hitch the trailer and make
sure the hitch is properly attached when Renter is departing from the pick-up location.
4. BOOKINGS AND FINANCIAL TERMS
a. Customer understands and agrees that once a Renter requests a rental of Customer’s RV, the price for such rental may not be altered without Customer contacting Trader and obtaining Trader’s express permission to change such rental price. If Customer does not wish to accept the rental request at the rental price provided in the request, Customer must reject the request and then change the offered price.
b. If a Renter requests to rent Customer’s RV over the Platform, Customer will receive a notice via the Listing Services containing (i) the first and last name of the Renter who has requested the booking, and, (ii) a link to the Renter’s Platform Account profile page. Customer must accept or reject such requested rental within 24 hours after receiving such request notice. Customer’s decision to accept or reject will be exercised at Customer’s sole discretion, subject to the conditions stated herein and provided such decision is made in compliance with applicable law. If Customer fails to accept or reject within such 24 hour period, the requested rental will be automatically rejected, and Customer will not receive any fees or other amounts resulting from such requested rental. When Customer accepts a rental requested by a Renter, Trader will send Customer an email, text message or message via the Services confirming such rental acceptance, depending on the notification preferences selected by Customer via the Services.
c. Upon accepting a rental requested by a Renter, Customer and Renter shall enter into a Rental
Agreement with respect to the requested rental. The “Rental Agreement” shall consist of (i) the
Rental Agreement set forth at https://sharepass.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/articles/360010821954, as modified by (ii) the Booking Form accepted by each of Customer and the Renter that sets forth the specific rental fees, rental period, rented RV, and other terms and conditions specified by Customer in the Listing and accepted by Renter via the rental request (each, a “Booking Form”). Payment of all amounts by Renter as compensation for such rental shall be governed by the Rental Agreement.
d. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Trader charges Customer certain fees (“Fees”) upon
confirmation of an accepted rental for an RV. The Fees are ten percent (10%) of the rental fees to be charged to Renter under the Rental Agreement, excluding any separate fees that are charged by Trader directly to the Renter upon entering into a Rental Agreement. The Fees are automatically deducted from the payout to Customer from a confirmed rental. Trader reserves the right to charge Renters separate fees in its discretion. The applicable Fees will be collected by SharePass, which will deduct and remit to Trader all Fees, as well as other fees, Taxes (defined below), and charges that may be due to SharePass, Trader, or others, from the rental fees and amounts received from a Renter before remitting the payout to Customer. Notwithstanding the appointment by SharePass as payment agent of Customer, Customer is responsible for paying any Fees that Customer owes to Trader.
i. All Fees are exclusive of any federal, state, and local excise, sales, use, and other taxes
that any governmental agency, department, or authority (each, a “Tax Authority”) with jurisdiction in the location where the RV is located or over the Platform may now or hereafter levy or impose on the provision of Listing Services or the rental of an RV by Customer to a Renter (collectively, “Taxes”). Customer is solely responsible for determining and satisfying its obligations to report, collect, and remit any applicable Taxes that may be due with respect to the listing or the rental of an RV.
ii. Customer appoints SharePass as its agent to facilitate the collection and remittance of
Taxes to any Tax Authority, and in furtherance of such appointment, Customer instructs and authorizes SharePass to collect such Taxes from Renter on Owner’s behalf at the time the rental fees and other Fees are collected and to remit such Taxes to the Tax Authority. The amount of Taxes, if any, collected and remitted by SharePass will be specified on the applicable Booking Form.
iii. Customer shall provide SharePass with any reasonably requested tax information or documents, including a signed and completed IRS Form W-9, and Customer authorizes SharePass to withhold and remit amounts in respect of Taxes from payouts to Customer, in each case, to the extent that SharePass reasonably determines that such actions are necessary to comply with applicable law.
iv. Customer agrees to promptly pay to Trader or SharePass upon request any additional amounts that either party may seek from Customer in respect of Taxes assessed upon the listing or the rental of the RV for which Customer is liable. Customer further agrees that its sole remedy for Taxes collected hereunder is a refund from the applicable Tax Authority in accordance with procedures set by that Tax Authority.
f. Any cancellation of a rental by a Renter or by Customer, and any Fees, if any, that may be due from Customer to Trader or any rental fees that may be due from Renter to Customer, each as a result of such cancelled rental, shall be governed by the “Cancellation Policy” set forth in the Rental Agreement.
g. Trader may modify any Fees payable under the Agreement for new rentals by giving Customer at least thirty (30) days’ prior written notice from time to time. Any such Fee modification shall not require an affirmative response by Customer or any further action by the parties before the Fee modification goes into effect. If Customer does not timely cancel and remove the applicable Listing before the date on which such Fee modification is effective, then such Fee modification shall be effective (and binding on Customer) as of the date specified in Trader’s initial notice with respect to such Listing.
a. Customer acknowledges and agrees that (i) in order to transact business using various applicable Listing Services, certain capabilities are required of Customer’s computing and telecommunications equipment (both hardware and software), (ii) Customer is obligated to procure and install for its use, at its own expense, all equipment and infrastructure (including wiring) that is necessary to access and otherwise receive the benefit of the applicable Listing Services, and (iii) Trader shall not be responsible or liable if for any reason Customer’s telecommunications and computing equipment is incompatible with or otherwise insufficient for Customer to utilize any applicable Listing Services.
b. Customer further acknowledges and agrees that (i) Trader, in its discretion, may collect, track,
analyze and/or create information and reports (collectively, “Results Reports”) related to each of (A) activities and/or results obtained in connection with Customer’s use of the Listing Services, including, without limitation, analytics data, measurement data, and other data regarding the use and/or effectiveness of any Listing Services (collectively, “Analytics Data”), (B) rental leads generated in connection with the provision of the Listing Services, including, without limitation, all information supplied by the prospective Renter, including their name, email address and phone number (collectively, “Lead Data”); and (C) Listings Data and Customer Content (each defined below); and (ii) in furtherance thereof, Trader may install certain tracking pixels or other similar tools on the Website and the Customer Content included therein (including photos) and use those pixels and tools to collect information relating to such use of the applicable Listing Services and/or any Analytics Data, Lead Data, Listings Data, or Customer Content.
b. Customer acknowledges and agrees that, as between Customer and Trader, Customer is solely
responsible for all information, content, messages, editorial content, music recordings, photographs, videos, artwork or other similar content that is included within or displayed on any Listing through any Listing Service or the Platform (such content, except to the extent it incorporates any Trader Proprietary Material, is collectively the “Customer Content”). Without limiting the foregoing, Customer represents and warrants to Trader that (i) Customer owns the Customer Content and/or (ii) all licenses, rights and other permissions from third parties (including but not limited to ASCAP, BMI and the Copyright Clearance Center) that are necessary to display or distribute the Customer Content through the applicable Listing Services shall be obtained (for the benefit of Customer and Trader) and fully paid before such display and/or distribution commences and, further, shall thereafter be maintained in full force and effect by Customer for so long as such distribution continues hereunder. Customer acknowledges and agrees that Trader has not undertaken, and will not undertake, any obligation to investigate or evaluate the extent to which the display or distribution of any Customer Content infringes upon or misappropriates any right of any third party or is otherwise permissible.

Customer shall indemnify, defend and hold harmless Trader, its affiliates, and its and their respective officers, managers, members, shareholders, directors, employees, agents, successors, representatives, and assigns (collectively, the “Indemnified Trader Parties”), from and against any and all claims, proceedings, and demands, both direct and third party (“Claims”), as well as any damages, settlements, judgments, injuries, losses, liabilities, costs and expenses (including reasonable attorneys’ fees) (collectively, “Losses”) incurred by any Indemnified Trader Party, that arise out of or result from (i) Customer’s use of any of the Listing Services and any other acts or omissions of Customer; (ii) the Customer Proprietary Information, including, without limitation, any Claim arising out of Trader’s receipt or use of the Customer Proprietary Materials in the manner contemplated by the Agreement or alleging that any Customer Content or Listings Data (A) infringes upon, violates or misappropriates any Intellectual Property Right of such third party, (B) violates applicable law, or (C) is inaccurate or misleading; (iii) any breach by Customer of any representations, warranties, covenants or other terms and conditions set forth in the Agreement; (iv) Customer’s interaction with any Renter or any rental or use of an RV by a Renter, without limitation, any injuries, losses, liabilities, penalties, fees, fines, or damages (whether compensatory, direct, incidental, consequential or otherwise) of any kind, and any theft, loss, damage to, or destruction of the RV, in each case, arising in connection with or as a result of any rental or use of the RV; (v) any Taxes imposed on Trader as a result of the provision of Listing Services or the rental of the RV by Customer (excluding Taxes determined with respect to Trader’s income); and (vi) any violation of law, negligence, willful misconduct, or breach of the Agreement or any Rental Agreement on the part of Customer.
b. If Trader determines, in its sole discretion, that the use of any Listing Services or Trader Proprietary Materials in accordance with the Agreement is, or may be held to be, infringing (or otherwise in violation of the Intellectual Property Rights of any person), then Trader may at its option and expense either (i) use commercially reasonable efforts to procure for Customer the right to continue to use the applicable Listing Services or Trader Proprietary Materials as provided in the Agreement for the remainder of the then-applicable Contract Period, or (ii) use commercially reasonable efforts to replace or modify the applicable Listing Services or Trader Proprietary Materials with a version that is non-infringing but that performs substantially similar functions. While pursuing either option, Trader may at its option suspend the provision of all or any part of the applicable Listing Services or Trader Proprietary Materials. If neither of the foregoing options is commercially viable in the sole judgment of Trader, then Trader may cancel its provision to Customer of the applicable Listing Services or Trader Proprietary Materials and refund to Customer any Fees pre-paid by Customer with respect thereto.
11. TERM AND TERMINATION
a. The Agreement shall commence on the date that the initial Order Form is submitted by Customer and accepted by Trader and shall remain in effect for the duration of the Contract Period for all Order Forms between Trader and Customer, as such Contract Periods may be extended or renewed in accordance with Section 1 ( e ), unless and until terminated in accordance with the terms hereof.
i. By Trader. Notwithstanding any other provision of the Agreement, Trader reserves the
right to suspend or terminate any or all Listings of Customer and any or all Listing Services provided to Customer, in whole or in part, and to terminate any Order Form and the Agreement, in whole or in part, at any time, for any or no reason, and without any requirement to provide prior notice to Customer. Upon termination by Trader, Trader will refund to Customer any prepaid Fees for which Customer has not received corresponding Listing Services, provided that Trader has the right to set off and deduct against any refund otherwise due to Customer any amounts that may be due from Customer to Trader under the Agreement.
ii. By Customer: Customer may cancel or remove any Listing at any time for any or no
reason by removing such Listing from the Platform. If, at any time following the adoption of the
Agreement, Customer no longer has any active listings on the Platform, Customer will be deemed to have terminated the Agreement automatically as of the date on which Customer removes its last active Listing from the Platform.
iii. In addition to the foregoing termination rights, each party may terminate the Agreement
at any time by written notice to the other party if (A) the other party materially breaches the
Agreement and the breach remains uncured for a period of fifteen (15) days (or, if the breach is
Customer’s failure to pay any required Fees, such period shall be five (5) days) after notice of breach from the non-breaching party, (B) a petition for relief under any bankruptcy legislation is filed by the other party, (C) a petition for relief under any bankruptcy legislation is filed against the other party and not dismissed within forty-five (45) days thereafter, or (D) a receiver is appointed for all or substantially all of the other party’s assets. In addition to and not in limitation of the foregoing, Trader may terminate the Agreement (including any and all active Order Forms) immediately upon written notice to Customer if Customer, or any of its employees, agents or other representatives, engages in any conduct that Trader in its reasonable discretion deems offensive, inappropriate or otherwise inconsistent with Trader’s standards of conduct, including, without limitation, use of abusive, insulting or derogatory language with any Trader personnel or other Users.
c. Following termination of the Agreement for any reason, all rights and licenses granted by Trader shall terminate, all Listings of Customer shall be removed, and Customer shall immediately cease use of all Listing Services (including by discontinuing use of all Trader Proprietary Materials) and certify to Trader that it has destroyed all copies of all applicable Trader Proprietary Materials. Notwithstanding the foregoing, termination of the Agreement shall not limit either party from pursuing any remedies available to it at the time of or in connection with such termination, nor shall such termination release Customer from its obligation to satisfy all payment obligations under the Agreement. Sections 3(b), 7 , 8 , 9 , 10 , 11 ( c ), 12 and 13 shall survive any termination or expiration of the Agreement.

existing and, where applicable as a concept, in good standing under the jurisdiction of its
organization, (ii) it has the full right, power and authority to enter into the Agreement and to
perform its obligations hereunder, and (iii) upon the complete execution and delivery of the
Agreement, the Agreement shall constitute the legal, valid and binding obligation of such party,
enforceable against such party in accordance with its terms.
b. Independent Contractors. The relationship of the parties hereunder is that of independent
contractors. Neither Trader, on the one hand, nor Customer, on the other hand, has or will have
any power to bind the other or to create any obligation on behalf of the other, nor shall it
represent that it has any such power.
c. Promotional Matters. Trader may issue press releases and other marketing and promotional
material describing the relationship created by the Agreement and, among other things, may
display websites or products developed for or provided to Customer as examples of the service
offerings available from Trader. Customer hereby grants Trader the right to use Customer’s
name, trademarks, service marks and logos (i) in advertising targeted to all or any portion of
Customer’s customer base in connection with the performance of the Listing Services hereunder,

nature, war or warlike conditions, terrorism, riot, embargoes, acts of civil or military authority,
fire, flood, accidents, strikes or labor shortages, sabotage, shortages in fuel, transportation
facilities or materials, or failures of equipment, Internet, telecommunications facilities or third
party software programs.
f. Severability; Waiver. If any term or condition hereof is found or ruled to be invalid or
unenforceable, the remaining terms and conditions hereof shall remain in full force and effect and
shall be enforceable to the maximum extent permitted by law. The failure of either party to
enforce any provision of the Agreement shall not constitute or be construed as a waiver of such
provision or of the right to enforce it at a later time.
g. Remedies. Except as otherwise expressly set forth in the Agreement, a party’s remedies set forth herein are not exclusive and are in addition to any and all other remedies available at law or in equity, none of which shall be deemed as waived by virtue of a party’s exercise of any other remedy. Each party acknowledges that any breach of the Agreement would cause the other party
irreparable harm that may not be adequately compensated by monetary damages; accordingly, in
addition to any other remedies available to it at law or in equity, each party will be entitled to
seek injunctive or other equitable relief to prevent any actual or threatened breach of the
Agreement without any requirement to prove the inadequacy of monetary damages or post any
bond or other security.
h. Amendment. The Agreement may not be amended or otherwise modified except by a writing
signed by both parties or as otherwise expressly provided in the Agreement (such as, by way of
example, in the case of Fee increases by Trader). If at any time after the effective date of
Customer’s initial Order Form Trader updates its model Owner’s Agreement, then as a condition
to renewing any Contract Period or posting any additional Listings, Customer may be required to
agree to such updated Owner’s Agreement. In addition, Trader may, at any time and from time to
time during the Contract Period, propose amendments or modifications to this Owner’s Agreement by delivering to Customer written notice of Trader’s proposed amendment or modification, which notice shall identify the sections or paragraphs hereof that are being amended. If Customer does not object to such amendment or modification by delivering to Trader written notice of objection within thirty (30) days after Trader delivers to Customer notice of the proposed amendment, then such amendment or modification will be deemed accepted and agreed to by Customer, and the Agreement and this Owner’s Agreement shall be automatically amended to include such amendment or modification without any further action by the parties. If Customer validly and timely objects to the proposed amendment or modification in accordance with the preceding sentence, then Customer and Trader shall endeavor to negotiate a mutually acceptable amendment or modification in good faith.
i. Assignment; Continuing Obligation. The Agreement is and shall be freely assignable by Trader,
but Customer may not assign or otherwise transfer the Agreement or any of its rights or
obligations hereunder to any other person or entity without the express prior written consent of
Trader. In addition, and notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in the Agreement, if
another person, business or entity becomes the “Customer” under the Agreement, whether by way of a permitted assignment hereof, change of ownership of the original/current Customer hereunder, or any other means or mechanism whatsoever, then following such assignment,
ownership change or other means/mechanism the original/current Customer shall nonetheless be
and remain responsible for both (i) all obligations incurred by the original/current Customer
hereunder prior to such change and (ii) any and all obligations (including but not limited to
payment of all Fees) incurred by any such new “Customer” subsequent to such change.
j. Third Party Beneficiaries.

Policy, and this Owner’s Agreement, constitutes the entire agreement and understanding of the
parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any and all prior agreements and
understandings, written or oral, with respect thereto. Customer further agrees that in deciding to
become a party to the Agreement, Customer has not relied upon any representations or
warranties, written or oral, that are not set forth in the Agreement.

How is RV Trader different from other RV rental portals?
RV Trader has over 30 years experience in the RV industry helping consumers find the RV for them to enjoy in the great outdoors. RV Trader is also different from other rental portals in that we do renter screening. We validate the renters’ contact information and that their vehicle meets your trailer’s towing requirements during the booking process so you save time not having to deal with renters who don’t have the right towing equipment and don’t provide good phone numbers. We also ask renters to share information about their passengers, RVing experience, and destination, so you can better evaluate the rental request with less back-and-forth between you and the renter.
What types of vehicles can I list on RV Trader?
We accept all types of RVs that are at least 10 years or newer, and in good condition. And of course, their registration must be current.
How do I get started?
It’s easy. Simply fill out the form and submit your information. We will assign you a contact and you can get access to start loading units within days!
