But my place is too small…
Do you have a driveway that can fit a Class-B (campervan)? Well that’s all you need. This is what Moochdocking is all about. Making what you have work. We have several suburban driveways that are convenient for tailgaters, stopovers, and alternatives to big box store parking lots. Your safe driveway is probably a better option for most travelers than the truck-stop down the road.
I’m not ready yet, we’re just thinking about it…
Good! Let us build your listing and see if it works for you. You don’t have to be a 5-star resort with full amenities; getting started today is your best option for deciding if it’s right for you. Try it out, it’s free to sign up and we build your listing for you. What is there to think about with that?!
I don’t have electric, sewage dumps, or potable water, would anyone even want to stay here or be willing to pay for that?
Yes! Most RVers are accustomed to dry-camping, wildcamping, and boondocking. You don’t have to be a 5-star resort, though you can choose to make it that way. This is about offering what you have, for the price you want, and hosting when you are ready, on your terms.
I see other hosts are offering other “stuff,” do I need to do that as well?
No, you can simply offer a driveway for 12-hour parking. We have hosts who treat this community as their opportunity to provide other goods and services, but you don’t have to. We love seeing hosts such as our “Bush Craft and Homesteading School” offer their unique skills, talents, and experiences, but that is up to you how much you would like to provide. We also love seeing hosts offer their goods such as “Orchard Camp and Peach Yummies” (link those two listings) but if you don’t want to, you don’t have to.
I’m not good with people or technology but I want the money my property could be making, is there a way I don’t have to deal with either?
Not really. If you choose to avoid human interaction, you will need the technology. Specifically our proprietary Mooch-park system. You also receive text and email notifications about your guest’s request, arrival, departure, and feedback. If you choose to keep the technology to a bare minimum, then human interaction is going to be important as you will have to be in contact with your guest to show them parking and make sure they have a wonderful time on your property.
We encourage our hosts to be accommodating, hospitable, warm and friendly to build their reviews and rapport but some listings such as the Open Pasture Dry Camp are so isolated and rural that it logistically just wouldn’t be possible for the ranch-owner to stop in and say hi.
My place is not pretty, nobody would want to stay on a farm, it is too hard to get to.
Wrong. Camping is not about any one single thing such as experience, location, amenities, or convenience. Each traveler is different, every location is unique, every traveller is unique, and yes people do want to stay at your ugly, hard-to-get-to farm. You may be surprised at why they come, so we assure you; your place does not have to be pretty, convenient, big, or fully-loaded.
I would, but I don’t want the liability...
That’s too bad. You’re missing out on great revenue potential, especially because we have terms of service that guests must sign and acknowledge before booking your site. We have hold harmless and indemnity waivers for our hosts, and we also carry insurance that covers all of our hosts for every booking. This is not a novel and unproven system; there are plenty of shared-economy platforms in today’s world that have been tested and proven for covering hosts in the gig-economy.
What about people who stay too long, have a big ‘ol party, and cause damage to my property
