What type of vehicles are allowed?
All classes of RV’s are allowed (Class A, Class B, Class C) including motorhomes, fifth wheel trailers, travel trailers, toy haulers, camper vans, truck campers, and schoolies. Vehicles towed behind RVs are also allowed at our Host locations.
Traditional pop-up campers, otherwise known as folding camping trailers, where the middle and sides of the trailer pop up and out, are prohibited.
Also prohibited: Tents, such as ground tents or car rooftop tents; sleeping in cars, trucks, or minivans; overlanding in jeeps, bikes, or atvs.
We do allow hybrid (expandable) travel trailers where only the bed areas pop out, but the rest of the trailer is composed of four rigid sides. We allow camper vans where the bed area at the top of the van pops up (but again, the rest of the van has four rigid sides). We allow clamshell and teardrop trailers, but their outdoor cooking facilities may not be used while on Host properties (see below).
Important: All camping vehicles must be fully self-contained. Your RV must have an interior toilet and built-in holding tanks or bladders for waste water. Porta-potties that remain inside the vehicle at all times are acceptable, but must be dumped off-site at an appropriate facility. The dumping of gray water on Host properties is prohibited. You may only use your RV’s indoor cooking facilities at Host locations; the use of any outdoor cooking facilities is expressly prohibited.
Are there vehicle size restrictions?
You can filter locations by sizes of 29 foot, 44 foot, or more than 45 foot in total length. These lengths INCLUDE any trailer or towed vehicle. If you are comfortable with disconnecting your tow, then you can classify your vehicle by the length of only the RV.
Do the Hosts offer electricity, water or sewer hook-ups?
Can I use a generator?
Are Hosts open all year?
Can I arrive unannounced?
By requesting ahead, you can ensure that the Host (1) is open and can accommodate you, (2) can tell you if there is a special entrance and (3) can be specific about where you should park when you arrive.
Can I arrive after business hours?
How do you get a reservation?
How far ahead should I call the Hosts?
Most of the time, we suggest a 24 hour to 2 week period of contacting the Hosts for requests to stay. There are some exceptions:
1) Most of our Hosts use our online Request-A-Stay system. Those Hosts will allow you to see availability from 90-180 days (depending on the Host).
2) If you know further in advance, you can call just to make sure the Host will be open during that time and doesn’t have an event. We recommend you calling again the week that you plan to arrive to ensure that nothing has changed.
3) If your plans change and you need a place to stay the same day, you can call but please be understanding if they cannot accommodate you.
4) A few of our Hosts don’t require advance notice. The Host information page will let you know that.
What if my plans change and I can't make a stay?
If your plans change, please contact the Host as soon as you can to either change your requested date or cancel your stay. Cancellations must be made at least 24 hours in advance of your scheduled stay.
Hosts work hard to create a unique experience for Members, and they lose business if Members do not show up on their requested date. Other Members also lose out when unused spaces are not available. Everyone loses when Hosts leave the program due to excessive cancellations.
Please adhere to the Harvest Hosts violations policy below:
- The first, and subsequent no-shows or cancellation with less than 24 hours notice, will result in an automatic 1-star Member review for that stay.
- The second no-show or cancellation with less than 24 hours notice will result in a follow-up from a Harvest Host Member success representative to ensure the Member is well, understands the program, and nothing is preventing them from keeping their scheduled stays.
- The third no-show or cancellation with less than 24 hours notice will result in a membership suspension for up to one year. No refunds will be provided.
Additionally, please note that Members are not permitted to request stays at multiple locations for the same night. If we discover a Member who breaks this rule, we will revoke their membership.
