I learned that leason early in my Air Force career. I loaned my Austin Healy Sprite to a so called friend for his last night before shipping out to Viet Nam. The next morning I found it was totaled and he was gone. I could have caused him a lot of trouble but chose not to. His name is on the Wall.
I can count the number of people I would loan my MH to on one finger. My older brother, the most honest person I know.

True Friends are like diamonds, precious and rare.
False ones like autumn leaves found everywhere.

For the Few that have asked, we told them that a rental company would be a better for them than risking our friendship if something
were to happen on there trip.
that is a grear answer !

Same answer here. Except for my son when he's 21. He's helped me so much with it that I'll probably give it to him. Hope he doesn't read this

Not a chance. It is my pride and joy. I have taken it and set it up in a campground for my daughter and grand daughter to have their vacation, but not beyond that.

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.
For Alpine owners, who know Engineer Mike, I would loan my rig to him in a heartbeat. He'd fix all the things that are wrong with it and return it in better shape that when I loaned it!

When my in-laws were alive I sure wish they had that much confidence in me. Kinda makes me jealous.

And by the way... NO!

No. Again. Think of the liability and your insurance. Also, someome borrowing would be a novice to handling and care of your m.h.

YES YES YES.. But with conditions..


I purchased my coach with the one of the goals being able to loan/rent it out to friends and family. But with the caveat, that it does not move.

My goal is to over the next few years move the motor home around to places that are desirable destinations. My New England friends love being in Florida during the winter months. My Florida friends and family love being in New England during the summer months.

My coach will be in Islamorada Florida from October to March. North Carolina from March to June and New England from June to September.

It will be a perfect “guest house”, “hotel room”, “land yacht” for any and all of my friends wanting a get-away vacation. Providing of course I’m not using it.

Engine keys will be locked in the safe I keep onboard and moving it will only be done in emergencies by anyone other than me.

As it’s not moving, I don’t think that there are any tremendous insurance liabilities by having parties other than myself onboard at times.

That doesn't count... that is not like LOANING OUT your motohome for someone to drive. I would suspect that most of us would allow friends to use a stationary motorhome, at least more of us than would let someone drive our motorhome.

For this reason your "YES, YES, YES" answer is, hereby, disqualified!
