WICHITA — There are fractional ownerships for jets and time-shares for condos, so Nasir and Chanda Jesri wondered if something similar might work for recreational vehicles.
They've started My RV Time Share to see.

The Jesris have rented RVs in the past.

"The kids love it," Nasir Jesri says.
His pocketbook doesn't quite as much.
"RV rentals can get pretty costly," Jesri says of everything associated with the rentals.
He says buying isn't an option for families with limited vacation time.
"The thing is, we can't afford to really pay for an RV and use it a few weeks a year," Jesri says.
That's why the Jesris researched a fractional or time-share model for RVs. They didn't find much nationally, so they decided to start their own operation with one 30-foot, 2014 model that can seat nine.
"Our model is totally different," Jesri says.
