The bears are hibernating. Please wait while they wake up.

Welcome to Red Bear Rentals!

Red Bear Rentals is YOUR sharing economy rental marketplace for outdoor recreational gear rentals together with vacation rental experiences

  • Hosts share the gear sitting around unused at home

    • bikes, kayaks, snowboards, paddleboards, camping gear, electronics, etc.

  • Guests search and compare individual, business, and vacation rentals together for the complete rental experience

RBR brings people together to share everything needed for the perfect rental experience at home or at the vacation destination. Our vision is to provide the platform to “Experience Everything”.

In the end the rental gear will be returned, the vacation home will be emptied, but the memories from everything you’ve experienced will be kept forever.

Through our core values of Sustainable | Adventure | Rental Experiences, we provide the network of individuals sharing gear from home, affiliate vacation rental partners, and local rental shop partners.

  • RBR is for the mass of people that don't own a home to rent out, or a car to share, and at the same time a simple next step to earn more revenue for the people that do
