When asked to borrow ours I tell them that our insurance only covers the wife & I as drivers.
I have also been asked to rent it out. Only problem is no one can come up with the $250,000.00 deposit.

Wow, can't believe so many non loaners. I would let my grown "kids" and their families borrow any thing they want. It's only stuff.

We had our new to us 05 travel supreme 2 weeks, had it detailed, 6 new tires (3900.00) and DW's son -in law wants to use it for the weekend. She is conflicted, so I tell her I'll take care of it. I tell him the tires are 425.00 each the polished rims are 300.00 each,road service will be about 300.00 to change a tire. Replacement of each compartment door would be about 1000.00 each. He says you do have insurance? I tell him if he has that kind of money on him, he can use it, we would not be using insurance to cover his damages. Never asked again and never caused a problem.

My kids and grandkids are lucky if I even let them inside for a drink. Kids can and will destroy a crowbar.

Well let's see if I'm insane. Our son was operating a tractor with six bottom plow at age 14. He drove our tandem grain and potato trucks when he wasn't operating the potato harvester at age 20. He has operated our Peterbilt crane trucks with 10 speed transmissions, plus all of the other heavy equipment associated with our businesses and our flat bed semi before we sold it. Before he set foot into our motorhome, he was probably more qualified to drive it than 90% of the first time buyers on this forum. He does blame me for one thing though. If I hadn't given him a chance to try the RV life, he and his wife wouldn't have just bought a new 45' Mountain Aire coach of their own. He says it's all my fault.

Just a nice straight forward NO. Any further explanation on your part is not required.

I don't loan my motor home to anyone. RVs are not built like a brick and mortar house and people not accustomed to an rv do not know how to respect this fact.

Exactly! Compared to other vehicles on the road, they are the most fragile.

I've loaned my cars with no problem. But an RV is a different story.

How about El Monte RV... or another rental company... there are quite a few of them across the USA that rent MH's and TT... they can pick the one they like, pay for the rental and any damage that is done while they are using it.. My answer would be the same if someone asked to use our cars or trucks ... there are people in the business that do that....

It must depend on the kid. I guess we are blessed with responsible kids!

If you let anyone borrow then everyone will ask, it's easier to just say no to everyone. That's what I would tell him.

Well, at least now I have an idea what will happen to me when I am old enough to retire. Looks like I will get untrusting, even with my family.

...I have now have a completion date for my factory ordered NeXas Bentley DP though it has not been long since I owned a new Lance camper. I introduced it to my son and grandkids and the very first they did was use the couch as a trampoline and all my son could do was smile.....I had to take action.....yes its just stuff but its my stuff and I paid good money for it....however its not the money....its just they don't want to even try to take the same care as I taught them and thats very disappointing....so no, they can't borrow it but they can go out with me.
