Most hosts are quite responsive and will reply to new requests or messages within a few hours. Keep in mind that they may get busy with their personal lives, work schedules, and other daily commitments, so it's not unusual for them to take up to 24-72 hours to respond.
You can also take advantage of the InstantBook feature for a faster process. This allows you to book an RV automatically without having to wait for the host to confirm the request. RVs with the InstantBook feature enabled will be identified with a lightning bolt icon.
