Outdoorsy, an Airbnb-style service for recreational vehicles, has raised $25 million in Series B funding.

Why it matters: Because this is more about millennials than retirees, which blows up all sorts of generational stereotypes.

Not only does Outdoorsy say that millennials are responsible for 38% of annual RV rentals, but Winnebago reports that RV sales are at a 50-year high and that millennials comprise 44% of first-time buyers.

Aviva Ventures and Altos Ventures co-led the round, and were joined by return backers Tandem Capital and Autotech Ventures.

"RV owners set prices [via Outdoorsy], keeping between 80-94% of the total based on their 'trust' ranking scores on the site and on how many vehicles they are renting. (The more they rent, the more they keep.) Outdoorsy separately keeps at least 10% of the overall rental price, in part to pay for on-demand insurance, along with unlimited roadside assistance."

Louisville officer: "Breonna Taylor would be alive" if we had served no-knock warrant

Sgt. Jonathan Mattingly, the Louisville officer who led the botched police raid that caused the death of Breonna Taylor, said the No. 1 thing he wishes he had done differently is either served a "no-knock" warrant or given five to 10 seconds before entering the apartment: "Breonna Taylor would be alive, 100 percent."

Driving the news: Mattingly, who spoke to ABC News and Louisville's Courier Journal for his public interview, was shot in the leg in the initial moments of the March 13 raid. Mattingly did not face any charges after Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron said he and another officer were "justified" in returning fire to protect themselves against Taylor's boyfriend.

U.S. vs. Google — the siege begins

The Justice Department fired the starter pistol on what's likely to be a years-long legal siege of Big Tech by the U.S. government when it filed a major antitrust suit Tuesday against Google.

The big picture: Once a generation, it seems, federal regulators decide to take on a dominant tech company. Two decades ago, Microsoft was the target; two decades before that, IBM.

Why the stimulus delay isn't a crisis (yet)

If the impasse between House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the White House on a new stimulus deal is supposed to be a crisis, you wouldn't know it from the stock market, where prices continue to rise.

  • That's been in no small part because U.S. economic data has held up remarkably well in recent months thanks to the $2 trillion CARES Act and Americans' unusual ability to save during the crisis.
