I love that one it's perfect,
But I still would lend my MoHo to my two daughters, ....... get this straight, my two Daughters Not their Beau's just them two, now they don't have any experience driving this motorhome or setting it up or using it ............ But,
They are Smart enough to never Bother even though they probably know they'd get it from their old Dad in a heart beat!

If they wanted it it's part of growing up I'd teach them how to use it and how to drive it and i'd be proud if they asked, but I know they won't cause they're too proud to ask and will wait till they can get their own and do their own research and take their own lessons and find their own campsite!

That's just how we raised them!

Regards,

Ed

The best way to lose friends or family is to lend ANYTHING, car, money, RV, wife !

I can certainly sympathize with those saying to not lend... it can result in problems and I usually do the same.

But, at one point I was that "Brother" asking to borrow his motorhome. My brother had purchased a used Winnebago and my family and I were returning from living outside the US for several years. We planned on taking an extended vacation in the US. My brother, without hesitation or concern, let me take his motorhome. My wife, daughter, and I spent the next 30 days traveling around the US. It was probably one of the best vacations we ever took and is the primary reason today, we are looking to buy our own motorhome. Without that experience, I can certainly say, I would be moving in another direction. So you never know what your actions will do to someone else and how it can move them down life's paths.

I have no problem loaning my 41ft motor home to my kids or my oldest granddaughter. Yes, I will make sure that they know how to operate everything. If they have a problem I am just a phone call away. When my wife was hit at a stop sign, she was afraid that I was going to raise holly heck. I just asked if anyone was hurt and she said no. I told her it is just a machine and that is why we carry insurance. I will never loan it to anyone else, except my youngest son had many relatives in for their wedding and I took it to their place and set it up so his future in-laws could use it to stay in. I find it odd that so many people put more worth in their RV than their own children.

Hey brother-in-law, can I borrow the rig for a couple of weeks next month?

I value my relationships so much that I would rather buy or rent them what they need. That way no one will feel bad if something bad happens.
It's the same with money. I would rather give them the money with no strings attached rather than risk disappointment from unfulfilled expectations.

Had some friends "wondering" about our coach and asked if we could give a quick tour. About 20 minutes in, you could tell by virtue of the conversation that the proverbial "would you lend it out" question was coming. I happened to be talking about the auto levelers and proceeded to hit the auto level button to demonstrate how it worked. When I got the hard jolt and rocking of the coach (as we always get in the leveling process), I yelled "Holy Cow...THAT'S not good" End of tour.........
