The Parkes Elvis Festivalis partnering withCamplifyto offer residents the opportunity to cash-in on next year's festivities by hiring out their caravans and campers to revellers visiting the region.

"We are thrilled to announce our partnership with Camplify for next year's festival," festival director Cathy Treasure said.

"This collaboration will provide locals with an exciting new avenue to engage with the festival and directly enjoy the profound impact it has on the local economy."

With more than 26,000 Elvis enthusiasts set to descend upon Parkes between January 8-12, owners will be able to reap the rewards of sharing their unused caravans by earning between $600 and $1250 over the festival's five days.

"We're constantly seeking new ways to inspire adventures and make outdoor holidays more accessible," CEO and Founder of Camplify Justin Hales said.

"With most RVs used for just four to six weeks of the year, we're excited to be able to offer a new way for van owners to boost their income with the added bonus of knowing that their vans will be covered by our comprehensive insurance."

If you're not confident in customers towing your caravan, that's also not a problem - Camplify enables you to personally deliver your vehicle and meet customers at local Parkes Elvis Festival campsites.

For locals without a caravan, Ray White Parkes is also offering the opportunity to rent out rooms and homes throughout the festival as part of their hugely popular Home Hosting program.

With less than three months to the Parkes Elvis Festival, now is the perfect time to help those on the lookout for accommodation and earn some extra revenue amid the vibrant festivities.

Camplify will be visiting Parkes on Friday, November 15, outside Colouby Creations in Clarinda Street from 10am-5pm to provide owners with more information on sharing their vans.

And they will be in Forbes on Saturday, November 16 in front of St George Bank in Rankin Street.
