Why You Should Redline

If you’re on this site, chances are you know about Redline and all the magical properties of being a member. However, it never hurts to get a refresher, and we wanted to take a moment to go over why being a Redline member can be more beneficial than owning. Of course, every situation is different and every person’s needs vary, but that’s what makes a Redline membership so great: it’s totally customizable and flexible depending on your needs.


  1. Owning is expensive

A lot of people don’t always take into consideration the true costs of ownership. There’s a lot to think about that sometimes fall to the wayside when the excitement of new toys come into play. For one, just storing the new equipment can get pricey. Not everyone has the space to store all the equipment they want to utilize. For the sake of simplicity, we’ll use average Boise prices for financial guesstimates. Depending on size, storage space for recreational equipment can cost anywhere from $90- $200 per month. That’s about $1080-$2400 per year. On top of an already expensive piece of equipment, that’s an expense that can be a drain. Keeping the equipment maintained and working (depending on how hard you are on your stuff) can also be a huge expense and can sometimes out-cost the actual piece of equipment. Another expense that is sometimes overlooked but very important is insurance. It depends on the piece of equipment, but for most full-time, large equipment averages anywhere from $900-$2000 per year. Not to mention the actual value of the equipment. The yearly depreciation of a $95,000 wake boat, plus the expenses of maintenance, storage, insurance, and other equally pricey factors can take a huge chunk out of your wallet.A Redline membership alleviates almost the entire expense. You don’t have to worry about any of those factors, just enjoy the equipment.


  1. All the equipment you get access to

The thing about owning your own equipment, is that you usually have to compromise on the actual equipment. Owning a boat, and an RV, and a UTV, and jet ski can get very expensive, and it usually isn’t feasible for the average outdoorsman. With a Redline membership, you get access to ALL of the toys in our fleet. That includes the watercraft, off road vehicles, campers/RV’s, and snowmobiles; all at your disposal. You don’t have to choose which equipment you get, because you can get all of it.

  1. Updated fleet

A lot of people end up buying equipment, only to have the next year’s model be the one they are really pining for. Unfortunately, it’s not always financially feasible to buy a brand new camper trailer every single year, and we understand that. Redline endeavors to update most of its’ big equipment at least every three to four years- think boats, RV’s, campers; and it’s smaller equipment (jet ski’s, snowmobiles, UTV’s, etc) every two to three years. 2019 alone saw new snowmobiles, jet skis, UTV’s, and a few new wake boats. That probably wouldn’t happen with owning.


All in all, owning your own recreation equipment can be fun and worthwhile, but more often than not, the financial burden outweighs the pros. That's where Redline comes in. Having access to all the toys you want, at a fraction of the price, is the top reason Redline boasts more than 500 members currently. Our members get to enjoy all the fun of having recreational equipment, with none of the hassle.
