If you're already planning your next vacation, but don't want to spend lots to do it, get ready to vacation and staycation, all at the same time, with an RV! The RV Industry association expects 2018 to be their biggest year ever. But, if you're worried you won't be able to afford one – you can! Jared Cotter's breaking down the 3 ways you can get your RV ride on in 2018, without breaking the bank.

1. Rent a 'V with Outdoorsy

Outdoorsy is the perfect place to start your RV adventures. If you don't want to buy one, the site, Outdoorsy can connect you with people around the country that are renting their rides. The company even provides insurance, plus 24-hour roadside assistance to renters!

2. TransferCar

If you don't have enough cash to take a roadtrip on your own, check out the site, Transfercar. When rental companies need to transport their vehicles, one way, to their original location, Transfercar steps in to pair them with drivers – and you can be one of them! Since you'd be saving the rental companies the cost of transport, they'll pay you back with the price of renting a ride.

And once you road trip your way to the vehicle's original destination, all you've got to do, when you're ready to head home, is pick up another RV, and you're on your way!

3. Become an RV Transporter

Getting an RV for free on vacation is great, but if you want to get paid to roll around in an RV, consider becoming an RV Transporter. As a transporter, you'll be tasked with driving RV's from their manufacturers to dealerships – and get paid for doing it! Your gas, food, and spending money will be covered, and even better yet: you don't have to go the job alone! Lots of RV Transporters can travel with their loved ones, making every day at work a fun trip on the road.
