RVSpotDrop: The Campers Are Coming, But Where Will They Go?

RVSpotDrop Sends Available Campsite Information To Your Inbox

Pandemic trends have come and gone, but one travel trend is here to stay: camping. While camping has always been a long-time favorite among families, the situation over the past few years has caused a massive surge in campers, and it’s showing no sign of slowing down anytime soon.

With the increase in campers, the RV scene has been booming. Kampgrounds of America, one of the world’s largest systems of private campgrounds, put together a report with stats and trends about camping in North America over the past few years. They found that there was four times the number of first-time campers in 2021 compared to 2019. As far as RVs are concerned, in 2021, there were 11 million RV owners plus another 2 million renting. That’s a whole lot of RVs out there!

Campsites are full, and finding one is a full-time job

While we love to hear that more Americans are getting out there to explore and enjoy mother nature, the more RVs there are on the road, the harder it is to reserve a campsite. The RV life is all about flexibility, but it can become less like an adventure and more like a chore when there’s nowhere to park your rig.

Campers have grown increasingly frustrated with spending hours searching online for a campsite, whether for a few nights or a season. They would much rather spend that time enjoying family time in the great outdoors.

RVSpotDrop to the rescue

Luckily for RVers across the United States and Canada, a new service is here to save the day. RVSpotDrop does the dirty work for you and will save you countless hours of searching online and making phone calls to find your next RV site. 

Signing up is simple, and once you do, the service will deliver notifications for available campsites right to your inbox. No scrolling, no phone calls, and no disappointment. 

Available RV sites directly to your inbox

RVSpotDrop was created for RVers, by RVers. Creators Jenn and Kendall from @dashboarddrifters have been there, done that. They’ve experienced first-hand how difficult it can be to book sites, especially in popular locations. And they noticed they weren’t alone.

After the start of the pandemic, they realized that RV forums and chats were filled with campers looking high and low for campgrounds that had long-term availability. With more and more campers hitting the road every day, there just weren’t enough campsites to go around. So, they wanted to create a system that could connect RV parks and resorts with fellow full-time RVers who were looking for a new home.

The campgrounds are in 

It’s not just campers who are stoked for this new service. Campgrounds all around the US and Canada have been excited about RVSpotDrop. Jennifer calls each park to talk with the owners and managers to explain how the new service works. It’s a win-win for both campers and campsites, and RV parks are eager to have people sent their way.

Smaller campgrounds are especially eager to join RVSpotDrop as the service is an excellent way to get more exposure. Campground directories and Google often have tons of pages, and their websites can get lost in the mix. With RVSpotDrop, campgrounds are connected directly with RVers who are actively looking for availability in their area.

How does RVSpotDrop work?

One of the best perks of this new service is how quick and easy it is to use for RVers and RV parks. To become a member, you simply create an online profile with your RV specifications, like length and hook-up necessities. Then, add the desired location and dates for either short-term, monthly, or full-time stays. After that, sit back and relax as RVSpotDrop does the rest of the work for you.

When availability matching your needs is found, an email is sent directly to your inbox. The email will highlight all the details and a direct link to the campground where you can book it ASAP.

RVSpotDrop is just as simple for the RV parks, resorts, and campgrounds they partner with. Campground and RV park owners can create a profile highlighting their amenities, services, and special features. Then, when someone cancels, or a last-minute site pops up, they can update their profile with the available dates. This will send an email alert to all of the RVSpotDrop members who are searching in their area. 

This service is especially helpful for small campgrounds with less visibility or old-school reservation systems. Instead of relying on campers finding your campsite, RVSpotDrop delivers a personalized ad straight to their inbox. 

Major convenience, minor price

Another perk of RVSpotDrop is the low price. A membership for RVers only costs $9.99 for an entire year. When you think about how much time you’ve wasted scouring the internet for an available spot, you’ll be happy to pay a small price to save that time for better things. Memberships are valid for one year and are renewed automatically or canceled at any time. There is no cost for campsites.

Planning has never been easier

Planning an RV trip, whether for a weekend or for an entire year, can be a daunting task. Combine the service provided by RVSpotDrop with other RV tools such as the RV LIFE App to assist with route planning, RV maintenance, and campground reviews, and the RV trip-planning experience becomes a whole lot easier and much more enjoyable! RVing is a great way to get out and explore with friends and family. Make the most of your personal time and travel plans by allowing RVSpotDrop to do the searching for you. 

Book and save

Pick your destination, get the email, book the site, and then kick back and relax. The RVSpotDrop annual membership costs just $9.99. But right now, Camper Report subscribers get 20% off when they enter code CAMPERREPORT at sign up!
