What is Vanly

Whether you’re a full time vanlifer or a weekend adventurer, you know sometimes the lifestyle is not all the glamorous. That’s why we created Vanly!

If you lived or traveled in a campervan or RV, you know there is still a gap between the social media portrayal of #vanlife and the reality of the lifestyle. From finding safe overnight parking, to a place to shower, refill your tanks and feel welcomed, the mobile lifestyle is not always easy. This is what motivated us to build Vanly.

Vanly is a marketplace connecting property owners who are willing to share their parking space and amenities for a fee, to van and RV travelers across the US in need of safe overnight parking. 


If you’re looking for a place to park your van or RV overnight, you should definitely give Vanly a try! Say goodbye to parking tickets, midnight knocks by the police, and worrying about your van being broken into. On Vanly, you’ll find listings for private parking spaces in all 50 states.  Booking your favorite driveway is super simple: just search by location, and add filters for price, size, and any amenities you’d like to have. Review the listings, and book your favorite one in just a couple of clicks. Your credit card won’t be charged until the host accepts your booking request. You’ll find listings with all kinds of amenities: from shower and WiFi access, to pet play space, laundry, water, hot tub access, and many more.  Stay safe, connect with locals, and don’t give up the comforts of home — try us out!


From a host perspective, Vanly is one of the most effortless ways to make extra passive income. Creating a listing only takes a couple minutes. As a host, you’re always in control of your listing: you set your own price and availability, add whichever amenities you want, and can decide to accept or deny any booking request. We won’t share your address and phone number with the guest until the booking is approved by you.  Payments and payouts are handled via Stripe, the industry leader for online transactions. This means Vanly does not store or have access to any of your banking information or sensitive data. We’ll transfer the money to your Stripe account on the day the booking starts. On the 1st and 15th of each month, your Stripe balance will be automatically deposited to the bank account or debit card you provided. On top of everything, Vanly is a great way to meet new awesome people from across the US!
