Henrick, NO is the short and simple answer. The big problem is what kind of RV experience do they have? Very few will take as good a care of a coach as you do. Another issue is what will happen if there is an accident? Or something breaks due to their misuse.

Parked by me and they use it as a guest house....that will be OK.

Look forward to seeing y'all in September.

Ken

I have never had this many reply's this quick to a thread I have started. A lot of you seem to have clear and very strong opinions about this subject which makes me feel "less mean" than before. Thank you for making me feel better.

BTW, if you do decide to loan it there are probably a lot of your Texas Boomers friends that would enjoy using it.
Jim - yes we do, and you are more than welcome any time. I would trust you with my house without hesitation.

I'll add my no to the list.

A buddy of mine loaned his to his sister who promply tore the roof open on a tree limb.

Most people who want to borrow or rent your rv want to use it as a party wagon and will not treat it as a home.

As said in some posts, insurance will be the easiest way to get you out of the problem. Just tell them straight out that your insurance won't cover them.
I developed a rule that I never loan out anything that runs on gas or diesel. If it is returned, in most cases it won't run.
Lost several things to a friend that died. Knew that he would not make it but just could not ask for items back while he was alive. Friendship was worth more than the items.
Had a relative that said how nice it would be to stay in my RV at the Shot Show in Vegas. I told them if they had the fuel, I had the time. Never heard any more about that.

I did one time A freind had the big C. I drove our class c at the time to the Delta near Sac Calif. did the set up for the two of them. They had large power boat and knew how to take of holding tanks etc.I went to visit on weekend and everything was fine. Two weeks later I drove it home It gave them quality time together because they loved to fish

Well, as usual, I will swim against the current. If they REALLY wanted to use it I would treat it as any business deal and require a legal contract stating::
  • A refundable deposit.
  • Who is responsible for what.
  • What is considered normal wear and tear.
  • Additional Insurance to be contracted by them.

I know this is treating a friend like a business, but that is what it would take.

I would also invite them to take a trip with me and mine before to see how they would function.
