Jellystone Par Camp-Resorts and RVshare.com announced a strategic partnership designed to make renting RVs and planning camping trips faster and easier.

Through the partnership, CampJellystone.com will become a “one stop shop” for camping where consumers can book rental RVs and Jellystone Park sites. Rentals can be picked up by the consumer and driven to the park. Some owners will even set up the RV for the camper.

“With the dramatic growth of RV camping, this new relationship is a key step in our strategy to increase Jellystone Park awareness and use among RV enthusiasts,” said Jim Westover, Jellystone Park’s VP of operations. “It will allow us to capitalize on each other’s web traffic to educate consumers about the Jellystone Park brand and the benefits of peer-to-peer RV rentals, ultimately driving an increase in RV site occupancy across the franchise.”

The announcement comes as same-park sales for the first six months of 2017 are up 11.7 percent over last year. In addition to adding six parks in 2016, several franchisees have expanded their parks with new features and amenities.

RVshare.com connects RV owners with prospective renters. According to RVshare.com Co-Founder Joel Clark, the typical family RV goes unused 50 weeks a year, while at the same time there is a nationwide shortage of commercially available units for rent. “Partnering with Jellystone Park will increase web visits for both our brands and bring awareness to RV rental options,” he said. “It’s a great opportunity to introduce more families to the fun of camping and recreation.”
