The start up that CRL is working on now is RVPlusYou.com is a peer to peer platform made up of RV owners and renters. Russ and his partners launched RVPlusYou in 2015. Since the launch, they’ve added almost 2,000 customers and they continue to see strong growth as they further develop the software.
The company provides delivered RV rentals throughout North America via their RV listing and booking software. The website allows RV owners to list their RV for free and earn extra income from their otherwise idle asset, but in a safer way because renters never drive or tow.
The privately owned RV’s (Recreational Vehicles) are delivered and set up by RV owners and rented by people looking for vacation rental accommodations delivered to events, weddings, and campgrounds. Renters can browse listings online, inquire about the RV, then book directly with the owner through the website which provides a rental protection policy.
The “Airbnb of RV Vacation Rentals”, RVPlusYou aims to target an under served market using under utilized assets which are already located near the renter’s desired delivery destination.
CRL is a managing partner and investor in RVPlusYou. Russ is directly involved in all aspects of the company, including sales, marketing, and operations.
